熱化学水素製造法ISプロセスの気相ヨウ化水素分解反応環境に用いる装置用金属材料の適用性を明かにするため、ヨウ化水素($$HI$$), ヨウ素($$I_2$$), 水($$H_2O$$)および水素($$H_2$$)の混合ガス環境において、連続高温ガス腐食試験による腐食速度測定,機械的性質の測定(硬度, 0.2%耐力,引張強度および伸び)を実施した。腐食環境は、モル比H$$_2$$:HI:I$$_2$$:H$$_2$$O=0.16:1:1:6, 大気圧, 450$$^{circ}$$C, 試料の暴露時間は100時間および1000時間とした。腐食速度の観点からはニッケル基合金(Hastelly C-276, MAT21, Inconel 625)が優れた耐食性を示し($$<$$0.03g m$$^{-2}$$h$$^{-1}$$),また、MAT21, Inconel 625の機械的特性に著しい低下は認められなかった。タンタルには水素脆化が認められ、ジルコニウムおよびニオブの耐食性は低かった。モリブデン,チタンの耐食性は良好であったが、モリブデンには強度低下(硬度が低下)が、チタンには水素脆化が危惧されることを見い出した。以上の結果から、本環境に対する装置用金属材料には、耐食性の観点ではニッケル基合金が適しており、特にMAT21は耐食性と機械的特性の観点から有望であることを明らかにした。

The iodine-sulfur thermochemical cycle for hydrogen production takes place in very harsh environments. Structural metallic materials for the hydrogen iodide decomposition are exposed in a high temperature halogen corrosion and hydrogen embrittlement environment. To evaluate adaptability of the materials, the corrosion rates and mechanical properties (the yield strength, the tensile strength, and the elongation) were measured. Prepared test specimens were exposed to ambient gas consisting of HI, I$$_2$$, H$$_2$$O, and H$$_2$$ (molar fraction of 1:1:6:0.16) at 450$$^{circ}$$C for 1000 h at atmospheric pressure. After the exposure, the corrosion rates were obtained by the weight loss of each specimen. Nickel-based alloys (Hastelloy C-276, MAT21, Inconel 625) exhibited appropriate corrosion resistance ($$<$$ 0.03 g m$$^{-2}$$ h$$^{-1}$$. In addition, no degradations of the mechanical properties for the MAT21 and the Inconel 625 were observed. The specimens of tantalum and titanium showed hydrogen embrittlement; the specimens of zirconium and niobium exhibited poor corrosion resistance. The specimens of molybdenum (Mo) exhibited good corrosion resistance; however, the strength degradation of Mo is cause for concern. As the results show, the nickel-based alloys are well suited for the structural materials within this environment from the viewpoint of the corrosion resistance. MAT21 among them is an outstanding material with an eye to its corrosion resistance and mechanical properties.
