Implications of Low Creep and Spalling Resistance in Refractory Bricks

2023-07-11 11:13:15

Low creep and spalling resistance are two important performance indicators of refractory bricks, and their meanings are as follows:

Low Creep: Creep refers to the continuous deformation of a material under stress for a long time at high temperatures. In high-temperature environments, refractory bricks are subject to thermal stress, and creep is the continuous deformation of the brick material under this stress. Low creep means that refractory bricks can maintain small deformation when used at high temperatures for a long time, reducing the adverse impact on the kiln structure.

Anti-spalling (Anti-spalling): Anti-spalling refers to the ability of refractory bricks to resist spalling or cracking caused by thermal shock at high temperatures. Inside the kiln, due to high temperatures and thermal cycles, refractory bricks are subject to stress caused by thermal expansion and contraction and are prone to peeling or chipping. Refractory bricks with good peeling resistance can effectively resist this kind of peeling and chipping, and maintain the integrity and stability of the inner lining.

Low creep and spalling resistance are important performance indicators of refractory bricks when they are used for a long time in high-temperature environments. Good refractory bricks should have low creep and good spalling resistance to ensure the stability of the kiln lining, prolong the service life, and reduce the frequency of maintenance and replacement. These performance indicators are usually related to the material composition, structural design, sintering process, and other factors of refractory bricks. Choosing refractory bricks with low creep and spalling resistance can improve the reliability and efficiency of your kiln.
