This paper documents the relationship between increasing levels of air filtration and decreasing sulfidation corrosion over a 6-year period for a 17-MW gas turbine located adjacent to a dry lake in the Mojave Desert. The machine was subjected to high ambient dust concentrations, rich in sodium chloride and sulfate, which initially produced catastrophic sulfidation. A procedure for the selection of adequate air filtration is presented based on air sampling data and known filter properties.
