Preparation and thermal shock resistance of sialon/SiC composite ceramics used for solar absorber

Preparation and thermal shock resistance of sialon/SiC composite ceramics used for solar absorber In this paper, sialon/SiC composite ceramics were synthesized in situ from SiC, α-Si3N4, AlN, calcined bauxite, quartz, and Y2O3 via layered buried sintering at different temperatures (1540–1640 °C). The sialon/SiC composite ceramics designed in this study are expected to be used as thermal absorb materials in solar thermal power generation based on the good mechanical character and thermal shock resistance. The results showed that the β-sialon/SiC sample with 60 wt% silicon carbide sintered at 1600 °C exhibited the optimal performances with dense microstructure, high bending strength, and good thermal shock resistance. After 30 thermal shock cycles, the bending strength of β-sialon/SiC sample with 60 wt% silicon carbide was 66.68 MPa with a decrease of 4.79%. In thermal shock tests, SiC and Si3N4 in the sample were oxidized into amorphous SiO2, and small amount of sialon was decomposed into mullite, which resulted in good thermal shock resistance. It was believed that in situ sialon/SiC composite ceramics can be a promising candidate for solar absorber owing to good thermal shock resistance. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of the Australian Ceramic Society Springer Journals

Abstract

In this paper, sialon/SiC composite ceramics were synthesized in situ from SiC, α-Si3N4, AlN, calcined bauxite, quartz, and Y2O3 via layered buried sintering at different temperatures (1540–1640 °C). The sialon/SiC composite ceramics designed in this study are expected to be used as thermal absorb materials in solar thermal power generation based on the good mechanical character and thermal shock resistance. The results showed that the β-sialon/SiC sample with 60 wt% silicon carbide sintered at 1600 °C exhibited the optimal performances with dense microstructure, high bending strength, and good thermal shock resistance. After 30 thermal shock cycles, the bending strength of β-sialon/SiC sample with 60 wt% silicon carbide was 66.68 MPa with a decrease of 4.79%. In thermal shock tests, SiC and Si3N4 in the sample were oxidized into amorphous SiO2, and small amount of sialon was decomposed into mullite, which resulted in good thermal shock resistance. It was believed that in situ sialon/SiC composite ceramics can be a promising candidate for solar absorber owing to good thermal shock resistance.
