Research on innovative corrosion resistant gradient tubes for biomass power generation installations.


Project GRAMAT (full title Research on innovative corrosion resistant gradient tubes for biomass power generation installations) has received funding from the European Union’s Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) research programme under grant agreement n° RFSR-CT-2013-00005.

Project duration: 07/2013 – 06/2017RFCS logo

Project amount:  2 341 852 EUR

Abstract:

Sharp increase of energy production based on renewable resources (co)firing is forcing boiler makers to apply expensive high-alloyed materials/claddings/barriers resistant to aggressive corrosion atmospheres into places where applied pressure and temperature would enable use of low-alloyed materials.

The projects main aim is to acquire knowledge necessary to develop new cost-effective manufacturing technology of boiler tubes made from semiproducts with through thickness gradient chemical composition, tailored to carry both creep loading (low alloyed body) and fireside corrosion (high alloyed shell). Gradient tubes will be rolled in existing facilities from semiproduct manufactured by unique casting technique.
