In this paper the corrosion behavior of high temperature corrosion resistant alloys is investigated in a gas atmosphere containing HCl and H 2S at 480 °C and 680 °C. By considering the vapor pressures of the metal chlorides and the water gas shift reaction, as well as the influence of H 2S, the different corrosion behavior at 480 °C compared to 680 °C can be explained and a model of the course of corrosion is proposed. Corrosion tests were performed for 240 h with the austenitic stainless steels S31400 (20 wt% Ni) and N08811 (30.4 wt% Ni) and with the Ni-based alloy N06600 (72.5 wt% Ni). It could be shown that with increasing Ni-content in the alloy, the corrosion rate at high temperatures decreased, but this effect could no longer be observed at lower temperatures. While for N08811 and N06600 the mass loss was lower at 680 °C, it increased at temperatures of 480 °C. In the case of S31400 the mass loss increased with rising temperature.
