Summary

Ceramic hot gas cleaning filters are mainly used at advanced coal-fueled power generation systems to clean the fuel gas. The aggressive process environment is known to cause microstructural changes in all common ceramic hot gas filter materials during operation. In this work laboratory scale exposures to high temperature, steam and alkalis were made for several commercial SiC- based hot gas filters. The changes in microstructure were studied as well as strength and creep properties were tested.

According to the results significant crystallization of the binder phase had occurred. SEM investigation suggests also oxidation of SiC. The loss of strength due to the exposure was observed and also some changes in creep properties. The details of microstructural changes and their effect on mechanical properties are discussed.
