High Temperature Corrosion Test Facilities and High Pressure Test Facilities for Metal Dusting

Six corrosion test facilities and two thermogravimetric systems for conducting corrosion tests in complex mixed gas environments, in steam and in the presence of deposits, and five facilities for metal dusting degradation


 

The High Temperature Corrosion Test Facilities and High Pressure Test Facilities for Metal Dusting include:

High Pressure Test Facility for Metal Dusting Resistance:

The facility is used to evaluate the performance of Fe- and Ni-base structural alloys in metal dusting environments at temperatures up to 700°C and pressures up to 600 psi.

High Pressure Metal Dusting Test FacilityHigh Pressure Metal Dusting Test Facility: Structural materials are tested for their corrosion resistance in simulated metal dusting environments at elevated temperatures, typical of conditions in hydrogen-, ammonia-, and methanol-reformers and in syngas plants.

Atmospheric Pressure Test Facility for Metal Dusting:

We have five facilities that are used to develop a mechanistic understanding of metal dusting degradation and to evaluate newly developed alloys, coatings, and weldments with improved metal dusting resistance.

Atmospheric tests facilitiesAtmospheric tests facilities are used to develop a fundamental understanding of metal dusting reactions and material performance over a wide range of simulated process conditions, temperatures, surface finish and coatings. The facilities are used to test developmental alloys and coatings with improved metal dusting resistance.
