Title: Studies on the hot corrosion of a nickel-base superalloy, Udimet 700

Abstract

The hot corrosion of nickel-base superalloy, Udimet 700, has been studied in the temperature range 900-950/sup 0/C. The effect of the amount of Na/sub 2/SO/sub 4/ on the corrosion kinetics was determined. Large weight gains and severe corrosion were associated with two different modes of degradation, the formation of large, interconnected sulfides beneath the external scale, and formation of a Na/sub 2/MoO/sub 4/-MoO/sub 3/ melt. The corrosion due to formation of the Na/sub 2/MoO/sub 4/-MoO/sub 3/ melt occurred for all the salt-coating thicknesses, whereas, large sulfides were formed only for the heavier coatings of Na/sub 2/SO/sub 4/. The formation of Na/sub 2/MoO/sub 4/-MoO/sub 3/ melt required an induction period and the length of the induction period was observed to be a function of the amount of Na/sub 2/SO/sub 4/ and of temperature.
