Abstract: This paper presents the causes of corrosion of a chimney in a cement plant. In this paper, information related to chimney failures is given in the form of a case study in Neka Cement Plant, Mazandaran, Iran. Heavy corrosion attacks were observed on chimney samples. Experimental observations (SEM observations and chemical analysis of corrosion products) and theoretical calculation (determine the corrosion rate) revealed that corrosion was due to the acidic duct gases condensation in the duct inner surface.
