topAM targets the development of novel nano-oxide/nitride-dispersoid strengthened (ODS) high temperature Fe, Ni, and NiCu alloys for topologically optimized and additively manufactured (AM) gas burner heads and high temperature heat exchanger components, as examples for industrially relevant applications in extreme and highly aggressive environments. These novel materials will allow for operation in high temperature and extreme environments to increase energy efficiency of future low-carbon technologies, while reducing maintenance intervals and shut down periods by increasing their lifetime. Despite the striking advantages of both ODS alloys and AM separately, the application of ODS alloys in combination with AM has not yet been scaled up to industrial applications and real conditions for aggressive high temperature environments and challenging mechanical operational demands.
DFI’s involvement in the topAM consortium includes alloy design and powder processing input, tribology experiments (up to 600 °C) of the produced novel ODS alloys, and metal dusting testing and characterization of the performance of the alloys under these high temperature and extreme environment conditions. Additionally DFI is the WP8 Dissemination and Communication lead for the entire consortium.
