Preliminary Observations of The Strain-Induced Corrosion of Alloy-800 in Sodium Hydroxide-Saturated Sodium and on its Evolution in Dynamic Purified Sodium
Incoloy-800 of specially controlled composition and micro- structure has been selected for the steam generators of sodium cooled fast breeder reactors (1,2). The assessments involved in such a selection were found to meet all the design requirements, including the corrosion resistance in normal service conditions or abnormal conditions (thermovector fluids contamined by sodium-water reaction products) (1).
