The ash deposition on low-temperature heat transfer surface is a key factor that deteriorates the heat transfer performance and leads to corrosion in the low pressure economizer. In the low temperature flue gas, ash deposition is closely related with acid condensation. The sulfuric acid vapor and water vapor contained in the flue gas will condense on heat transfer surface under low flue temperature, which will aggravate ash deposition. In order to evaluate the influence factors of ash deposition on low-temperature heat transfer surface, a laboratory experiment is carried out in this paper. The acid concentration of flue gas, the ash content, the ash component, the flue temperature and the temperature of heat transfer surface are considered to be the most important influence factors on ash deposition characteristics. The viscosity of ash deposition samples on the outer wall of the double-pipe is measured to describe ash deposition characteristics. The fouling factor is calculated. Meanwhile, the scanning electron microscope SEM is used to the analysis of ash samples obtained from the outer wall of the double-pipe. As conclusion, the changing regulation of viscosity of ash deposition on low-temperature heat transfer surface is obtained. (CSPE)
