Materials Technology in Steam Reforming Processes is a collection of papers that covers advancement in the various areas of studies in steam reforming processes. The title presents the studies of authors who are involved in the development of a particular process. The coverage of the text includes the fundamental aspects of the creep deformation of metals; factors affecting choice of materials and design of units for pressure steam reforming; and the research background of the thermalloy grades of chromium-nickel-iron heat-resisting alloys. The selection also covers corrosion problems on finned air-cooled heat exchanger tubing; and thermal insulation for steam-reforming plants. The book will be of great use to scientists, engineers, and technicians involved in materials science.
