- A series of austenitic Fe-Cr-Mn steels was exposed to circulating lithium at temperatures up to 500/sup 0/C. Two groups of the alloys, which contained 12 to 30 wt % Mn and 2 to 20 wt % Cr, were sequentially exposed for periods greater than 3000 h in a type 316 stainless steel thermal convection loop. Mass transfer of manganese caused very large weight losses from the steels containing 30 wt % Mn. However, the actual magnitude of corrosion losses for alloys containing 12 to 20 wt % Mn was difficult to establish due to competing surface reactions involving chromium.
