Potentiodynamic anodic polarisation measurements have been carried out on type 316L stainless steel (as a reference material) and on alloys 33 and 24 in a simulated flue gas desulphurisation environment in order to assess the localised corrosion resistance. The results showed that the pitting corrosion resistance was higher in the case of alloys 33 and 24 than in the reference material owing to the higher contents of nitrogen, chromium, and molybdenum. An accelerated leaching study conducted on the alloys 33 and 24 showed only minor tendencies for the leaching of metal ions at various impressed potentials. Observations by SEM confirmed the lower tendency towards pitting of the alloys 33 and 24.
