NET Power sCO2

  • Designed and developed a heat exchanger core test rig to validate the analytical and thermo-mechanical goals of the program.
  • Architecture: Plate / Fin Linear seam welded construction. Vacuum furnace brazed cells. High pressure manifolds.
  • The project was designed as a proof of concept program to validate a high temperature high pressure supercritical CO2 heat exchanger for the NET Power cycle.
  • Validate the analytical models, material properties, overall thermal performance and pressure loss.
  • Material characterization for select superalloys, thermo-mechanical fatigue, creep resistance and identification of other technical and manufacturing risks.
