Title: METAL-CERAMIC COATING FOR HEAT EXCHANGER TUBES OF A CENTRAL SOLAR RECEIVER AND METHODS OF PREPARING THE SAME
Abstract:
Provided are metal-ceramic coatings (11) for heat exchanger tubes (10) of a central solar receiver (120) and methods of preparing the same. The metal-ceramic coatings (11) comprise at least one ceramic phase dispersed in a metal matrix and are disposed along the heat exchanger tubes (10) to improve heat transfer and reduce oxidation of the heat exchanger (tubes10). Methods of preparing the metal-ceramic coatings and systems for using the same are provided.
