Refractory Lining Material Improves Gasifier Performance

Refractory materials are used to line the interior of slagging gasifiers, where a carbon-based feedstock such as coal, petcoke, and/or biomass, is converted at high temperatures in an oxygen-deficient environment to produce synthesis gas, which can be used in power generation.

Mn-Co Coating for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Interconnects

This manganese-cobalt (Mn-Co) spinel coating was specifically tailored for interconnects of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The coating was designed to prevent the evaporation of chromium from the ferritic stainless-steelbased interconnect while maintaining the electrical conductivity of the interconnect system. Chromium acts as a poison, increasing the resistance of the interconnect and thus reducing the electrical conductivity and operating lifetime of the fuel cell. Chromium poisoning is one of the major challenges to be overcome before SOFCs can become commercially viable power sources.

Cerium Oxide Coating for Oxidation Reduction

In order to produce power more efficiently and cleanly, the next generation of power plant boilers, turbines, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and other essential equipment need to be operated at extreme pressures and temperatures known as the “ultrasupercritical” range. Even nickel-based superalloys and stainless steels suffer from excessive oxidation at these conditions, leading to the premature failure of components.
