- The objective of this effort was to evaluate and initiate development on double-wall tubing and tube/tubesheet welds of various configurations for application in LMFBR steam generators. The scope of this effort was limited to one material (2 1/4 Cr-1Mo), two T/TS weld types (IBW and Orbital) and relatively small tube dimensions (approx. CRBR reference steam generator). It was recognized that larger tubes are, in general, easier to weld and that other combinations of tube materials (Incoloy 800, Inconel 600, 9Cr-1Mo) are feasible; however, metallurgical properties for these materials are being determined in the Advanced Alloy program and are beyond the scope of this effort. The double-wall tubing types evaluated for this study were also limited to tubes with water/steam on the tube side and sodium on the shell.
