 Title: Technology to secure safety of nuclear power plant using tribology technology

 Abstract:

Molten salts are considered as candidate heat transfer fluids and thermal energy storage media for next generation concentrating solar power (CSP). A molten salt circulates inside the piping and heat exchanger and also functions as a lubricant for the sleeve bearings of the CSP pump. Wear- and corrosion-resistant high-temperature bearing materials are critical for the pump efficiency and durability. This study evaluated the tribological performance of candidate bearing materials in lubrication of a molten chloride salt mixture (20% NaCl + 40% MgCl2 + 40% KCl) at 750 C in an inert argon gas (a simulative CSP pump environment). Six ceramic-alloy pairs were tested, zirconia and silicon nitride against Haynes 244, Hastelloy C276, and Tribaloy T900 alloy, and ranked by the friction coefficient and wear loss. Characterization of worn surfaces suggested the wear mechanism as a combination of abrasion, adhesion, and tribocorrosion. Results from this study provide fundamental insight for the development and selection of bearing materials for molten salt powered CSP pumps.
