    Abstract

    At high temperatures the water/steam side oxidation resistance is an important issue for boiler components like superheaters, where the growing internal oxide decreases heat transfer and increases surface temperature. This is increasingly critical for modern plants that aim for high efficiency from elevated levels of operating temperature and pressure. In this paper, a new simple model is presented to describe the steam/water side oxidation rate of common alloys for the high temperature end of the boiler plant. The model is based on the chemical composition of the alloys, applying equivalence expressions for collapsing the multi-variable problem to a more easily manageable setting with a combined parametric oxidation (POX) model. For verification, a range of experimental water/steam oxidation data from numerous tested alloys has been compared with the model predicted oxide growth. The results suggest a surprisingly good agreement with the model and test data. Although the optimised model parameters differ between e.g. steels and nickel alloys, as expected due to difference in the oxides, they remain very similar within a given material class, e.g. for all tested steels.
