Title: Halide and Oxy-halide Eutectic Systems for High Performance High Temperature Heat Transfer Fluids

Abstract

This report presents the work of developing a high temperature heat transfer and thermal storage fluid using low-cost chlorides salts as the basic components. Eutectic mixture of two or three chlorides salts could form a molten salt that can meet the expectation of low freezing point, high boiling point, and low corrosion to high temperature metals. The report includes two parts. Part-A presents the important principles of selecting appropriate constituent chloride salts for the eutectic mixture to have desired thermophysical properties and low corrosion to high temperature metals. Some selections of salt mixtures are listed for theoretical and experimental studies. Thermal and transport properties and heat transfer of four selected mixtures of chloride salts are presented at the end of Part-A. Detailed studies to the corrosion mechanism/behavior of metals in the selected salt mixture at high temperatures are presented in Part-B. Conditioning and purification to the salts are also introduced in Part-B, which is critical to keep the selected chloride salts to have low corrosion to metals at high temperatures.
