The Difference Between Refractory Bricks and Special-shaped Bricks

2023-09-12 16:51:20

There are many types of refractory bricks, including high alumina bricks, lightweight insulation bricks, clay bricks, etc. However, in terms of size, there are many sizes of refractory bricks. The general standard size of refractory bricks is 240mm*115mm*53mm. There are also Other less commonly used sizes, although the sizes are different, are all boxy. Special-shaped bricks generally refer to refractory bricks of different shapes that are irregular in shape and customized according to the specific needs of use. It is also a type of refractory brick, but its shape is irregular compared with ordinary refractory bricks.

The difference between refractory bricks and special-shaped bricks

1. Different shapes

The shapes of special-shaped bricks are all kinds of strange, and they are generally customized according to the needs of on-site use, such as trapezoidal, round, etc. They require additional grinding tools, and generally, they are customized according to the specific shape by opening a mold, and refractory The shape of the brick is relatively fixed, and there is no need to open a separate mold. The shape is a relatively conventional rectangle, so there is a big difference between the two in appearance.

2. Different uses

Refractory bricks generally have regular shapes and are generally used for lining large areas. However, special-shaped bricks are used in some special locations. In some situations where conventional refractory bricks cannot be built, their shapes must be measured according to specific usage requirements. Custom-made molds are also made according to the specific location of use.

3. Different materials used

Generally speaking, the material ratio of refractory bricks is relatively fixed and usually will not change. However, special-shaped bricks need to be proportioned according to the specific use location and then made according to the proportion of raw materials. Special-shaped bricks of different shapes.

4. Different prices

Generally speaking, the price of special-shaped bricks is more expensive than refractory bricks. In addition to the cost of mold making, the amount of special-shaped bricks is relatively small. There is no ready-made equipment for mass production, and it needs to be made manually one by one, so the price is higher. It is more expensive than refractory bricks, and refractory bricks are generally more regular in shape and have large-scale equipment for mass production. Generally, the production efficiency is much higher than that of special-shaped bricks, so the price will be lower.

The above is the difference between refractory bricks and special-shaped bricks. It is worth mentioning that special-shaped bricks are a type of refractory bricks, but their appearance is quite different from conventional refractory bricks, so our platform is relatively simple to distinguish.
