Cold end corrosion and deposit formation due to sulfuric acid is a phenomenon not uncommon in boilers and waste heat boilers. Normally, the operating conditions can be changed to reduce or eliminate the corrosion and deposition problem. In a Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) recuperator, changing the operating conditions is not a practical solution. This paper presents the results of three different test periods using various materials at different operating temperatures.
