An Evaluation of Fe-Cr-Al Alloys in Simulated Coal Gasifier Environments From 850°C to 1050°C

  • J. K. R. Weber
  • M. G. Hocking


Selected mechanically alloyed Fe-Cr-Al alloys ranging from 16–25% Cr and 3–7% Al, with minor additions of Ti and yttria, were exposed to synthetic coal gasifier atmosphere containing up to 1% H2S from 850-1050°C.
