This presentation provides an overview of methods for avoiding unplanned shutdowns due to corrosion failures in non-rotating power generation equipment. Reliable operations have always been important but are now more critical due to the added demands on plant engineers and management. Included are reviews of the common forms of corrosion and control methods in these applications. Specific mitigation actions are presented for four common classes of problems. Learn More
