In this binder jetting additive manufacturing study, an Inconel 625-based heat exchanger was optimized for heat transfer applications with corrosive molten salt at atmospheric pressure as the heat transfer fluid and supercritical carbon dioxide at 200 bar as the working fluid. The heat transfer capabilities of the heat exchanger were optimized. Mechanical and thermal properties were characterized to support the design. Lab-scale prototype heat exchangers with integrated headers were fabricated and sintered in a hydrogen environment for full densification. Experimental heat transfer testing was conducted. This work was performed as part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) #A21007 between Argonne National Laboratory and ExOne Operating LLC as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Technology Transitions Technology Commercialization Project at Argonne National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy laboratory managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC, under Contract No. DE-AC02-06CH11357 with the U.S. Department of Energy.
