Haynes International produces alloys that enable the successful use of many power generation technologies. Our portfolio of HAYNES® high-temperature alloys are designed to resist oxidation, sulfidation, carburization and to cover a broad variety of challenging environments.
The largest power generation applications focus on Industrial Gas Turbines. Because of their combination of high-temperature strength, resistance to oxidation, formability, and weldability, HAYNES® alloys are found in burners and injectors, combustion liners, transitions ducts, and exhaust components. These same characteristics make these alloys attractive in Advanced Ultrasupercritical Steam, Supercritical CO2, Sterling Engines, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants, fuel cells, and other unique power generation methods.
Industrial Gas Turbines
In thousands of industrial gas turbines all over the world, HAYNES® and HASTELLOY® alloys are quietly and reliably working to provide electrical power, transportation and fluid/gas transmission that keep the global economy running. From large frame engines providing hundreds of megawatts of power to mechanical compressors for pipelines to recuperated microturbines supplying combined heat and power, gas turbine combustion systems need materials with the high strengths needed to control shape at high temperatures for thousands of hours. HAYNES® alloys fulfill that need in ways few other materials can match. With very good ductilities in most of these alloys, many complex fabrications have been made. For more information, click here.
Advanced Ultrasupercritical (A-USC) Steam Power
On nearly every continent on the global, A-USC programs have been initiated to find a way to drastically enhance the efficiency of coal-fired power and reduce emissions. All programs seek to increase temperatures and pressures to achieve these goals. In the U.S., a consortium of OEM’s, National Labs, and other industrial organizations have been looking at conditions of 1400°F (760°C) and 36.2MPa (5250 psi) where high-temperature nickel alloys will be necessary. For these programs, HAYNES® 282® alloys is under consideration as one of the highest creep strength and fabricable materials available.
Supercritical CO2 (SCO2)
Like A-USC steam, Supercritical CO2 offers higher power densities and a way to drastically enhance the efficiency with reduced emissions. Operating at 1292°F (700°C), HAYNES® 282® alloys is attractive as one of the highest creep strength and fabricable materials available.
Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) with Thermal Storage
Renewable energy technologies like concentrated solar power offer zero net emissions in operation, and with thermal energy storage via molten salts, can operate for extended hours after sunset. However, the high temperatures and thermally cycling present unique challenges for the high temperature receivers. HAYNES® alloys, like 230® alloy, provide excellent creep strength and oxidation/corrosion resistance necessary to meet the targeted service life for the tubular products.
