Abstract
An investigation by the Technical University of Nova Scotia in co-operation with the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic has suggested that zinc is a possible inhibitor to hot corrosion. To date, crucible tests and thermogravimetric analyses have been performed on Nimocast 713; these have largely substantiated the beneficial effect of zinc. To expand on this research, a low pressure, low velocity burner rig capable of simulating the corrosive environment under dynamic conditions was constructed. The present report details the construction of this device and analyzes data obtained from Hastelloy X, Nimocast 713, and Inconel 92 specimens exposed to the simulated environment.
