Additional data and experimental setups, for a comparative study of alloys in contact to eutectic melts for thermal storage
Journal article, 2021

Three different eutectic salt mixtures have been brought into contact with three different high temperature alloys to assess corrosion damages for next-generation CSPs. This article contains additional material to support findings and assessments reported on our main article in the Solar Energy Journal []. Five sections, A-E, provide data to ensure reproducibility and confidence in our claims in the main article. A newly designed experimental setup for high temperature exposures is described as well as impurities within used chemicals. Material thickness measurements document alloy consumption by eutectic salts. Reaction enthalpies are listed illustrating individual metal species in contact with salt species at relevant temperatures. Thermodynamic single point equilibrium calculations have extended environmentally induced Laves phase precipitation found for alloy Kanthal APMT in contact with molten chlorides.
