  • Publication number: 20170096353
    Abstract: The present invention makes it possible, in a plant such as a thermal power plant, to prevent the corrosion of a piping member or a device such as a boiler by effectively decomposing nitrogen monoxide (NO) included in waste water or condensate water and inhibiting the generation of nitrous acid (HNO2). The present invention is a piping member used in a feed water system or a waste water system of a plant, and characterized by coating an inner wall of the piping member with a catalyst accelerating decomposition of nitrogen monoxide.
