Operators of steam-generating systems should understand flow-accelerated corrosion and the potential problems it can cause
Brad Buecker, Kiewit Engineering Group
Many chemical process industries (CPI) facilities utilize high-pressure steam generators to produce both electricity and process steam, a technique commonly known as combined heat and power. Owners and operators of these combined-cycle units, as well as other steam generators, need to be aware of the phenomenon known as flow-accelerate corrosion (FAC), which, if ignored, can lead to corrosion-induced failures of steam systems....
