The possibility of joining dense ceramic BCSF tubular membranes to metal alloys using a silver braze was investigated. Four different alloys (Crofer 22 APU (R), Kanthal APM (R), Haynes 214 (R) and EN 1.4841) were considered and the influence of their oxide scale stability/reactivity and their thermal expansion coefficient on the stability of the final joint was evaluated. Leak tight assemblies were obtained only for steels with a thermal expansion coefficient of > 16 [10(-6) K-1] and protective coating. Proof-of-concept oxygen flux measurements up to 830 degrees C were performed on these assemblies, demonstrating the functionality of the developed hot sealing. In addition a simulation of the stresses occurring in the joint assembly during use was performed for different materials and geometries. The obtained results fit well with the experimental findings.
