Hi all,

I'm working on a gasification reactor, with a design temperature of 1000deg C and 100 psi. The interior of the reactor will be exposed to high temp. steam and syngas. We've used 316 stainless in the past for lower temp. applications but we've been seeing a lot of scaling on the outside of the reactor.

I'm pretty certain we will need to upgrade to some metal rated for higher temperatures. I'm doing some research into inconel but I'm, not sure what the best grade/s of inconel would be. I've been looking around the web but most places don't have much specific information on maximum temperatures. Can anyone recommend a good grade of to use for my application or some good reference material or codes I should look at?

Thanks,

Bruno

iconel is no good for reactor plant systems, it will undergo serious neutron embrittlement and failure will happen.

Carbon steel clad with stainless is pretty much the industry standard.
