Chromium evaporation of Coated and uncoated FE-22CR steels investigated by a novel denuder technique
Paper in proceedings, 2009

The formation of volatile chromium species is a major problem concerning metallic interconnects for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC). This problem is known and a number of routes, usually in the form of coatings, has been presented to overcome this problem. This paper investigates the influence of thin metallic films which can be applied by a low cost process. The measurements are carried out by a novel denuder technique where volatile chromium species are collected as sodium chromate. This technique allows the quantification of chromium evaporation in a time resolved manner. Coated and uncoated samples of ferritic steels developed for SOFC applications are investigated at 850°C in a N2-O2-H2O environment.
