Hybrid compact heat exchangers have been proposed to handle the high-pressure differentials between liquid sodium coolant in fast reactors and supercritical CO2 in Brayton power cycles for electric power generation. However, their use has not been certified. A candidate material for manufacturing these hybrid compact heat exchangers is 316 stainless steel, which has been proven corrosion and creep resistant up to 550oC in both sodium and supercritical CO2 environments. The authors present room and elevated temperature mechanical performance of diffusion bonded 316, including tensile, creep and creep fatigue results. These results are discussed in context of use for a hybrid compact heat exchanger.
