High-temperature corrosion is a form of corrosion that does not require the presence of a liquid electrolyte. In this corrosion mechanism, metals. This chapter explains the brief understanding of the high‐temperature oxidation of pure metals such as iron, copper and zinc. Effect of crystal structure from fcc to. High-temperature corrosion. High-temperature corrosion refers to a chemical attack from gases, solid or molten salts, or molten metals, typically at temperatures above °C (ºF). Examples of high-temperature corrosion are: Carburization.

What is High-Temperature Corrosion? - Definition from Corrosionpedia

Reducing environments are characterized by low-oxygen activities, with no excess oxygen available. However the oxide scales formed in the case of copper fcc consist of an outer copper oxide layer and inner porous layer.

At the lower part of the high temperature corrosion range the oxidation kinetics and oxide morphology depend strongly upon the formation of CuO. The formation of CuO changes the oxidation behavior from being approximately parabolic growth to having a break way like oxidation behavior.

Also with addition to crystal structure, grain shape, size, and grain boundary diffusion on high temperature play the influential high temperature corrosion on oxidation of pure metals. In this section we consider pure Cu, Fe and Zn at the subject of interest from the range of pure metals because of different crystal structures and the general application in industrial point of interest.

Experimental conditions and reaction temperature Three commercially pure metals such as iron, copper and zinc having different crystal structures were taken into consideration [ 27 high temperature corrosion.

The prepared specimens were examined using optical microscope for the microstructures of the preoxidized specimen.


The specimens are further ground, polished and subsequently cleaned in acetone for oxidation species. The high temperature corrosion and cleaned specimens are placed in the central zone of the furnace for oxidation at dry air.

The external scales of oxidized specimens were characterized by scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive spectroscopy. Vanadates of composition approximating Na2O.

This composition range is common for ashes, which aggravates the problem. Chromium III oxidenickel II oxideand cobalt II oxide are less soluble in vanadates; they convert the vanadates to less corrosive ionic form and their vanadates are tightly adherent, refractory, and acting as oxygen barriers.

In the liquid high temperature corrosion, molten metals and molten salts pose their own unique challenges, high temperature corrosion highly complex and environment-dependent corrosion.

High-temperature corrosion

Gaseous attack is not limited to oxygen however, with sulfur-bearing gases, carbon oxides and many other elements all attacking materials in different manners.

Open access peer-reviewed Edited volume High Temperature Corrosion Edited by Zaki Ahmad High temperature corrosion is an extremely important area of corrosion as high temperature corrosion causes the failure of high temperature equipment in process industry and power generation.

Every engineer is required to obtain a basic knowledge of high temperature corrosion high temperature corrosion prevent the colossal damage caused by it. This book contains chapters ranging from basic to advance topics to create an understanding of high te
