To permit the use of high-vanadium residual oil as fuel for combined super-charged-boiler gas-turbine power plants, it is necessary to determine the treatment required to prevent the high-temperature corrosion and deposit problems associated with this fuel. A test program has been undertaken wherein a number of magnesium and aluminum-bearing additives have been injected into washed residual oil when firing a laboratory-scale, simulated supercharged boiler. Different tube arrangements within the boiler have been tried. Ash collected on the tubes at various locations has been analyzed and its corrosive effect at high temperatures on some types of stainless steel has been evaluated. The results thus far obtained are presented together with some hypotheses regarding the formation of deposits.
