Corrosion in exhaust gas cleaning systems The life span of flue gas desulfurization systems depends significantly on the chosen material and its corrosion resistance. When using inappropriate stainless steels or alloys, the composition of the exhaust gases may cause corrosion that leads to damages of the scrubber in a short period or to a complete failure of the system. Nickel and nickel alloys have proven resistance to a wide variety of aqueous corrosive environments typically encountered in flue gas cleaning technology. Nickel by itself is a versatile corrosion resistant metal. More...

The principles of the scrubber technologies have already been proven in stationary power plants. Over the last decades, when air pollution and acid precipitation became an issue, strict regulations for air purification were put into place. VDM Metals decided early-on to do its part to overcome these challenges with the development of new alloys and helped its customers comply to the new regulations with meaningful systems. VDM Metals applies its extensive knowledge and long-term experience in the production of corrosion resistant materials for application in flue gas desulfurization...
