Alternate materials of construction for geothermal applications. Progress report No. 19, April-June 1979

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A program to develop nonmetallic materials for use in geothermal processes is described. To date, several high temperature polymer and polymer concrete systems were formulated, laboratory and field tests were performed in brine, flashing brine, and steam at temperatures up to 260/sup 0/C (500/sup 0/F), and economic studies were started. Laboratory data for exposure times > 2 years are available. Results are also available from field exposures of up to 24 months in five geothermal environments. Good durability is indicated. Testing at two of these sites is continuing and plan to initiate tests at other sites are being implemented. Construction ... continued below

Description

A program to develop nonmetallic materials for use in geothermal processes is described. To date, several high temperature polymer and polymer concrete systems were formulated, laboratory and field tests were performed in brine, flashing brine, and steam at temperatures up to 260/sup 0/C (500/sup 0/F), and economic studies were started. Laboratory data for exposure times > 2 years are available. Results are also available from field exposures of up to 24 months in five geothermal environments. Good durability is indicated. Testing at two of these sites is continuing and plan to initiate tests at other sites are being implemented. Construction of full-scale pipe sections by a commercial firm has started. Work has also been started to develop materials for use in high temperature seals for well drilling, logging and energy extraction processes.
