Special Issue "Materials Corrosion in Molten Salts and Heat Storage"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 May 2024 | Viewed by 875
Molten salts have been regarded as one of the most promising candidate heat transfer fluids (HTF) and thermal energy storage (TES) materials in the fields of electrometallurgy, thermal energy storage, concentrating solar power, nuclear energy, etc., due to the relatively low cost, superior thermophysical properties and abundant reserves in nature. From the thermodynamic viewpoint, pure molten salt is very stable and not corrosive. Actually, the corrosion property of molten salt cannot be ignored and has received increased attention worldwide because of the inevitable impurities of molten salt during the process of preparation and operation. In sever cases, the pipelines in contact with the molten salt can have holes corroded into them, leading to the high-temperature molten salt gushing out, then the whole system is down due to this serious accident. Thus, the compatibility of structural materials and molten salt is quite important and critical for choosing appropriate materials and molten salt in practice. Many influence factors such as temperature, redox, corrosion product, flow velocity, stress, and friction can cause the corrosion of the structural materials in molten salt. With the increasing commercial application in practice, the corrosion issues of molten salt receive increasing attention to solve the corrosion problems.
