Description/Abstract:The feasibility of using polymer concretes as materials of construction in geothermal processes has been demonstrated and tests to determine the practicability are in progress. High temperature polymer concrete systems have been formulated and laboratory and field tests are being performed in brine, flashing brine, and steam at temperatures up to 500/sup 0/F (260/sup 0/C). Results are available from field exposures of up to 18 months in four geothermal environments. Good durability at temperatures > 392/sup 0/F (200/sup 0/C) is obtained with samples containing portland cement-silica sand aggregate. Based upon these results, potential applications for polymer concrete in geothermal processes have been identified and the effects of its use on the cost of electric power generation have been estimated. Reductions in the cost of power delivered to the distribution system of approx. 10% were calculated. Redesign of the plants for the optimum utilization of polymer concrete would be expected to result in greater savings.
