The need for improved wear-resistant materials for valves, nozzles, and other wear-prone components has been demonstrated by frequent failures in gasification and liquefaction pilot plants. The key to the development or selection of improved materials is a thorough understanding of the behavior of existing materials in both laboratory and pilot plant environments. This Bureau of Mines paper presents results of research to evaluate materials in these environments, recommendations on the best currently available materials, and the use of accumulated data to develop better materials.
