Abstract

High temperature heat exchangers represent up to one third the cost of efficient advanced utility power cycles. The proposed process will greatly increase the high temperature durability of the heat exchangers, reducing maintenance and replacement costs and thereby promoting the widespread adoption of these efficient power systems.
