Under certain circumstances, hot gases containing particulates may be expanded through a turbine. The erosion damage due to the particulates interacts with the high temperature oxidation processes. The interaction may be positive: the oxide layer may be more erosion-resistant than the substrate. The interaction may be negative: the erosion can remove the protective oxide resulting in accelerated metal loss. If the gases contain corrosive materials such as alkali sulfates as well as the particulates, further interactions are possible. These processes are of importance in gas turbine expanders for pressurized fluidized bed combustors burning coal, and several research projects are in progress to study them.
