Monitoring of 13% Cr martensitic stainless steel corrosion in chloride solution in presence of thiosulphate by acoustic emission technique

Highlights⿢A martensitic stainless steel was tested in a chloride solution in presence of thiosulphate ions.⿢Pit growth mechanism was observed to change during time.⿢Acoustic emission source localization along specimen length allowed to identify different damage mechanisms.⿢Acoustic emission technique allowed to identify specific parameter values for the different damage mechanisms.

Durability on alternate immersion test of self-piercing riveting aluminium joint

AbstractThe aim of the present work is to evaluate durability behaviour and performances of self-piercing riveting joints of aluminium alloys sheets. The investigation was extended to two different total thicknesses (i.e. 3 and 4 mm) of symmetrical or unsymmetrical joints. The joint resistance was determined, by means of shear tests of single-lap joints. Long term ageing tests were performed to evaluate the durability of the mechanical joint in critical environmental conditions. The experimental results evidenced that the corrosion degradation phenomena influenced significantly performances and failure mechanisms of the joints. The authors, furthermore, proposed a theoretical model for sake of predicting the failure modes; a simplified failure map of the failure mechanisms and the effect of the corrosion were drawn.

Zeolites direct synthesis on heat exchangers for adsorption heat pumps

AbstractImproving performances of adsorption heat pumps involves developments in adsorbent materials as well as in design of more efficient adsorbers and heat exchangers. The aim of the present work was to study some aspects of the “direct synthesis” of zeolites on metal surfaces for the preparation of coated adsorbent beds for more efficient adsorption heat pumps. Different zeolites were grown on stainless steel, copper and aluminium and the results were analysed in terms of phenomena at the zeolite–metal interface, coating thickness, adhesion properties and protective effects. Direct synthesis, indeed, has demonstrated to be a valuable technique but influenced by requirements and limitations strictly dependent on the physico–chemical interaction between the material used for support and the zeolite coating considered.

Hydrothermal and microwave synthesis of SAPO (CHA) zeolites on aluminium foams for heat pumping applications

AbstractIn this paper, a study on direct growth of SAPO (CHA) zeolites on aluminium foamed supports is presented. A preliminary investigation on SAPO-34 and SAPO-44 syntheses was carried out by conventional hydrothermal and microwave route to select appropriate formulations for in situ growth on aluminium foams. Adsorption capacity of coated foams were evaluated by a McBain system and compared to adsorption isobars of pure zeolites measured by a Chan microbalance. Coated samples showed the typical behaviour of the corresponding zeolite, confirming that the interaction with aluminium support was not detrimental to the zeolite adsorption performances. SAPO-34 coatings grew ten times faster by microwaves than by hydrothermal route, while for SAPO-44 the microwave deposition was not feasible for the intense corrosion of aluminium foams.
