Fireside chemicals is necessary for fireside boiler treatment to prevent fireside slag/ deposition from fuel ash parts, corrosion, and cold end corrosion.
Impurities in fuels can cause deposits and metal surface corrosion. Fireside fouling of combustion equipment is mostly caused by the deposition of fuel ash components. Compounds of aluminum, barium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, and silica have all been used to control combustion fouling and corrosion.
Fuel ash corrosion in high-temperature areas can cause extensive boiler damage. The corrosion is caused principally by complex oxide-slags with low melting points. Corrosion by slag components advance rapidly between 600 to 900 deg C.
