The oxidation mechanism of Ni–Fe–Cr alloys was studied at °C in air. The results showed that an outward-growing (Ni,Fe) 3 O 4 /Fe 2 O 3 layer and a Cr internal oxidation zone were initially formed on Ni–Fe–10Cr alloy.

With increasing oxidation time, a continuous Cr 2 O 3 inner layer was developed between internal oxidation zone and substrate, and subsequently the internal Author: Wei Wei, Geng Shujiang, Chen Gang, Wang Fuhui. Scaling of commercial high-strength austenitic stainless steels and nickel-base alloys, possible candidates for ultra-supercritical (USC) boiler-tube materials, was studied in atmospheric steam at K for hours.

For steels of more than 22 wt% chromium, uniform formation of protective Cr 2 O 3 resulted, and scaling was by: When present in austenitic Fe‐Cr‐Ni alloys, both silicon and yttrium influence scaling behaviour during oxidation tests in air at high temperatures. The former promotes the formation and maintenance of a continuous Cr 2 O 3 scale and the latter improves scale by: 9.

The goal of this program was to increase the high-temperature strength of the H-Series of cast austenitic stainless steels by 50% and upper use temperature by 86 to F (30 to 60 C). behaviours of Alloy with varied strain rate at high temperatures, Accepted for presentation at THERMEC', Las Vegas (USA),To appear in Advanced Materials Research or Materials Science Forum.

High temperature oxidation tests A novel high temperature corrosion test (HT-CT) was developed for corrosion and oxidation studies. The test rig enables a mixture of gases in various. The macro observation after oxidation at °C for 24 h in Fig. 1a shows that the oxide layer covering the surface of CoCrNi was thin (∼15 μm) and mostly continuous.

For a comparison, Figs. 1b and c show the condition of the oxidised CoCrFeMnNi and SS (austenitic stainless steel) alloys. The oxide layer observed on the surface of CoCrFeMnNi had a similar morphology as the oxide from.

The initial content of carbon i n the alloy was mass% which decreased to mass % in the case of stainless steel and mass% in the case of variety due to the impact of the decarburizing High Temperature Corrosion of Austenitic Stainless Steels environment.

In many commercial alloys the extent of subsurface degradation may be more significant than metal wastage due to scaling.For instance, Harper et al. recently reported the long-term, cyclic-oxidation behaviour of a variety of wrought alloys over the temperature range –°C and showed that subsurface degradation accounted for 14–98% of the average metal affected by the oxidation.

semi-austenitic and austenitic, respectively. Alloy PH is classified as a semi-austenitic stainless steel because the chemistry is composed so that the microstructure is primarily austenitic at room temperature.

Some applications of this grade require refrigeration to °F before age hardening. Fig. shows a chromium oxide scale on a sample of alloy exposed to He-containing CO and CO 2 in the ratio CO/CO 2 = 9 for h at °C.

The rate of growth of the oxide is parabolic in time, most likely indicating solid-state diffusion control. Accordingly, oxide growth is sensitive to temperature and, at high temperatures envisioned for the VHTR, the oxidation rate is fairly rapid.

These materials were oxidised in laboratory air at temperatures of °C in the case of low-alloy steels, °C in the case of an austenitic steel (TP) and up to °C in the case of the Ni.

Unlike the chromia scales on Fe–20Cr–20Ni, those on the Si-containing austenitic alloys remained protective for longer, as seen in Fig.

Several research groups have investigated the corrosion behavior of chromia-forming Ni alloys exposed to pure CO 2 at high temperatures (> °C) and a wide range of pressures ( MPa) relevant.

A higher C modification can be heat treated to higher strength and hardness levels. Higher C alloy with Mo provides improved elevated temperature strength.

In this series there is also an Fe-Cr-Ni-Mo alloy with low C content. Austenitic grade alloys have high Cr, high C, wholly austenitic compositions in which the Cr exceeds the Ni content.

The invention relates to an austenitic nickel-chromium-iron alloy and its use as a material for articles with high resistance to isothermal and cyclic high-temperature oxidation, high heat resistance and creep rupture strength at temperatures above to ° C.

The austenitic nickel-chromium-iron alloy consists of (in% by weight): to %, carbon; 23 to 30%, chromium; 8 to 11%. In addition, alloy S exhibited lower weight gain during air oxidation compared to alloy L due to its higher content of chromium and nickel. Oxidation of alloy S in supercritical water was much lower than that of alloy L because of the formation of a protective layer of Mn 2 CrO 4 spinel on the surface.

The resistance of various commercial alloys to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in 50% NaOH has been evaluated at temperatures in the range to C. Austenitic alloys tested included Type series stainless steels, Monel AlloyInconel Alloys,Incoloy Alloys,Hastelloy Alloy C, and Nickel Model alloys Fe–20Cr and Fe–20Cr–20Ni, with and without Si additions (, and wt%), were exposed to Ar–20CO2–20H2O gas at °C.

All undoped alloys underwent breakaway corrosion, resulting in iron-rich oxide scales and internal carbide precipitates. Silicon addition significantly improved both oxidation and carburization resistance in wet CO2, by forming a layer of silica. As part of round robin testing, specimens of commercial alloys,and were exposed to 20 MPa research grade CO2 at °C for up to h.

The first set of specimens had higher mass gain likely due to impurities not flushed from the autoclave at startup. After this issue was corrected, an identical set of specimens exhibited lower mass gains for both the Fe- and Ni-based alloys.

A superalloy, or high-performance alloy, is an alloy with the ability to operate at a high fraction of its melting point.

Several key characteristics of a superalloy are excellent mechanical strength, resistance to thermal creep deformation, good surface stability, and resistance to corrosion or oxidation.

The crystal structure is typically face-centered cubic (FCC) austenitic.In this study, Si coating and heat treatment was employed to form a Si-rich layer on an austenitic Fe-base alloy, SS LN.
