Paper Title:
High Temperature Oxidation of Fe-9Cr-1Mo Steel in Liquid Metal
  Abstract

The oxidation mechanism of the T91 martensitic steel in oxygen-saturated Pb-Bi eutectic at 470°C has been investigated to develop a long term predictive model of the steel oxidation kinetic. This work is performed in the frame of life duration studies carried out for the MEGAPIE spallation module demonstrator dedicated to the feasibility demonstration of an hybrid reactor. Our scientific approach has been based on an experimental characterization of the oxide scales and of the T91 steel oxidation kinetics. From these experimental results, an oxidation mechanism has been elaborated and then simulated. The oxide scale formed at the T91 surface has a duplex structure, constituted of an external magnetite scale and an internal Fe-Cr spinel scale. A scale growth mechanism has been proposed: the magnetite scale growth seems to be limited by the iron lattice diffusion inside the duplex oxide scale. At the same time, a self-regulation mechanism seems to govern the Fe-Cr spinel scale growth. This mechanism consists of a non-limiting oxygen diffusion step, which is carried out, across the oxide scale, inside liquid lead nano-channels and a limiting iron oxide lattice diffusion step. Considering the proposed oxidation mechanism, a simulation of the growth of the two oxides scales has been carried out and compared to the experimental oxidation kinetics. The excellent agreement between the experimental results and the simulations supports to accept the proposed mechanism, leading to prediction of kinetics for long oxidation durations.
