The following report is the third and last in a series describing the progress of “A Research Study on Internal Corrosion of High Pressure Boilers.” The first report described the background, scope, and organization of the program as well as the test facility. The second report discussed the methods of testing and the results of the first six runs. This final report describes the results of the last six tests and discusses the conclusions drawn from all of Phases II and III. The scope and an outline of seven tests composing the newly scheduled Phase IV program are also included. The results of runs with three types of boiler water treatment, fouled heat transfer surfaces, and conditions simulating fresh water and seawater condenser leakage are included. Data relating to deposition and corrosion in these environments are presented with particular emphasis on the severe corrosion experienced with simulated seawater condenser leakage.
