The erosion durability of three tube materials that are generally used in the heat exchangers of steam boilers was tested by having an air flow containing particles flowing through tube banks. The materials tested were St35.8, 15Mo3 and 10CrMo910. The last one was most resistive to erosion. The material 15Mo3 had a higher resistance than St35.8, but lower than 10CrMo910. Correlations between erosion resistance and the strength, and erosion resistance and the ductility of the steels were observed. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
