Cold end corrosion due to sulfuric acid is a phenomenum not uncommon in boilers and exhaust gas waste heat boilers. Normally, the operating conditions can be changed to reduce or eliminate the corrosion. In a Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) plant, this is not a practical solution. This paper presents the preliminary results of corrosion testing of various materials in a simulated CAES recuperator environment.
