Long-term corrosion behavior of ODS-Eurofer in flowing Pb-15.7Li at 550°C

Krauss, Wolfgang; Wulf, Sven-Erik; Konys, Jürgen

Low activation ferritic-martensitic steels (RAFM-steels) are foreseen as structural materials in different blanket designs (HCLL, DCLL, WCLL) with Pb-15.7Li as breeding and partly also as cooling medium. In HCLL and WCLL designs the structural material will be in direct contact with the flowing liquid breeder at operating temperatures up to 550 °C. In the past, investigations concerning the corrosion behavior of RAFM-steels like F82H-mod. and Eurofer showed that these alloys are attacked by the flowing breeder. These corrosion tests pointed out, that the corrosion attack depends mainly on flow velocity and tem- perature. All these alloys were ‘single’ phase ferritic-martensitic steels without any additions. However, structural materials with better strength and creep resistance like ODS-Eurofer or ferritic steels are gath- ering interest in blanket development and will be required at least for DCLL application due to higher operation temperatures. Nevertheless, reliable data concerning compatibility with Pb-15.7Li are missing until now. In this paper results from long-term corrosion testing of ODS-Eurofer will be reported for exposure times up to 1.5 years at a flow velocity of 0.1 m/s. ... mehr
