The report gives results of part of a study of corrosion in large utility boilers firing high-sulfur coal, as possibly affected by combustion modifications (CMs) for decreased nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. During the first part of this study, each boiler was characterized to learn the short term effects of various CMs on boiler operation and emissions. Later, a Level 1 environmental assessment (EA) of boiler operation was performed, followed by tests to measure corrosion rates in the furnace. For the nearly 2-year study, waterwall corrosion rates (measured ultrasonically) were similar to rates under normal operation at about 1-2 mils/yr.
