Corrosion behavior of weld joint of high chromium alloy in flowing lead bismuth eutectic under active oxygen control

Furukawa, Tomohiro  ; Aoto, Kazumi ; Konys, J.*; Mueller, G.*

A key problem in the development of heavy liquid metal cooled fast breeder reactors is corrosion of structural and fuel cladding materials with the coolants, lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE). Authors have been performed corrosion tests of the materials - high-chromium type martensitic steel (12Cr-steel) and oxide dispersion strengthened martensitic type steel (ODS) - in stagnant LBE under the various oxygen concentrations or in flowing LBE under active oxygen control, and investigated the corrosion behavior. In this paper, the corrosion behavior of the 12Cr-steel joined by multi-run TIG welding (weld 12Cr-steel) and its surface alloying with aluminum in flowing LBE under active oxygen control is presented.
