Solubility of Major Elements of Steel into Lead-Bismuth Alloy

Sano, Hiroyuki*; Fujisawa, Toshiharu*; Furukawa, Tomohiro  ; Aoto, Kazumi 

Lead-Bismuth eutectic alloy (LBE) has been considered as a prospective coolant for a fast-breeder reactor, but a corrosion of cooling pipe is anticipated when it is used. In the previous study, the solubility of major metallic elements, such as Fe, Cr and Ni, into LBE was measured under extra low oxygen potential. The interactive effect of those elements on the solubility was also examined. However, it is thought that an oxide layer is formed on the surface of the cooling pipe and influences on the corrosion of the pipe. In this year, the measurement of the solubility of major elements of steel into lead-bismuth alloy through Fe-Cr complex oxide was started. In addition, the thermodynamics of the Pb-Bi-O system at 800 K was investigated and the phase diagram of the system was determined. From the above results, the stability diagram of the Pb-Bi-O system was established.
