  • The study of oxidation of Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/ in the Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/-Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/ system of highly dispersed oxides showed that Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/ is oxidized when heated in air in the 670-870 K range. Hexavalent chromium ions located on the surface and in the crystal layer near the surface are the product of oxidation. Oxidation of hydrated chromium oxide Cr(OH)/sub 3/ after annealing is more than one order of magnitude greater than for Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/. In combined annealing of highly dispersed Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/ and Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/, the concentration of Cr/sup 6+/ ions is determined bymore » the annealing temperature and increases with an increases in the specific surface area of the oxides and the degree of its hydration. During storage of annealed Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ + Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/ mixtures, Cr/sup 6+/ is reduced to Cr/sup 3+/. It was hypothesized that the process of oxidation and reduction of chromium ions in a system of oxide in a highly dispersed state are due to dehydration and hydration of the surface of the Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/ and Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ crystals.« less
  • The nonisothermal oxidation behavior of pure iron and a few iron-chromium alloys in dry air has been studied. The effects of a superficial coating of a reactive oxide, CeO{sub 2}, on the oxidation behavior were studied. Linear heating rates of 3 K/min and 6 K/min were maintained up to a final temperature ranging from 1,273-1,473 K. Coatings were applied either from a slurry or an aqueous bath. The CeO{sub 2} coating has been found to be effective not only in decreasing the nonisothermal oxidation rate but also in improving the scale adherence. Moreover, the coated samples withstood a number ofmore » heating cycles without scale rupture. The mass gain of the samples as a function of temperature was recorded by means of a sensitive balance, and the scales have been characterized by SEM, EPMA, and x-ray diffraction analysis.« less
  • One of the main challenges in the power and chemical industries is to remove generated toxic or environmentally harmful gases before atmospheric emission. To comply with stringent environmental and pollutant emissions control regulations, coal-fired power plants must be equipped with new technologies that are efficient and less energy-intensive than status quo technologies for flue gas cleanup. While conventional sulfur oxide (SOx) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) removal technologies benefit from their large-scale implementation and maturity, they are quite energy-intensive. In view of this, the development of lower-cost, less energy-intensive technologies could offer an advantage. Significant energy and cost savings can potentiallymore » be realized by using advanced adsorbent materials. One of the major barriers to the development of such technologies remains the development of materials that are efficient and productive in removing flue gas contaminants. In this review, adsorption-based removal of SOx/NOx impurities from flue gas is discussed, with a focus on important attributes of the solid adsorbent materials as well as implementation of the materials in conventional and emerging acid gas removal technologies. The requirements for effective adsorbents are noted with respect to their performance, key limitations, and suggested future research directions. The final section includes some key areas for future research and provides a possible roadmap for the development of technologies for the removal of flue gas impurities that are more efficient and cost-effective than status quo approaches.« less
  • The present is a study of the solidification and microstructure of Fe–28.2%Cr–3.8%B–1.5%Si–1.5%Mn (wt.%) alloy deposited onto a 1020 plain carbon steel substrate using the controlled short-circuit metal inert gas welding process. The as-solidified alloy was a metal matrix composite with a hypereutectic microstructure. Thermodynamic calculation based on the Scheil–Gulliver model showed that a primary (Cr,Fe){sub 2}B phase formed first during solidification, followed by an eutectic formation of the (Cr,Fe){sub 2}B phase and a body-centered cubic Fe-based solid solution matrix, which contained Cr, Mn and Si. Microstructure analysis confirmed the formation of these phases and showed that the shape of themore » (Cr,Fe){sub 2}B phase was irregular plate. As the welding heat input increased, the weld dilution increased and thus the volume fraction of the (Cr,Fe){sub 2}B plates decreased while other microstructural characteristics were similar. - Highlights: • We deposit Fe–Cr–B-based alloy onto plain carbon steel using the CSC-MIG process. • We model the solidification behavior using thermodynamic calculation. • As deposited alloy consists of (Cr,Fe){sub 2}B plates embedded in Fe-based matrix. • We study the effect of the welding heat input on the microstructure.« less
