Corundum Refractory Bricks

Corundum bricks are alumina refractory products that contain more than 90% of Al2O3. Corundum bricks have good resistance to acid corrosion, alkali corrosion, metal liquid erosion, and glass liquid corrosion. No matter in an oxidizing atmosphere or in a reductive atmosphere, the corundum bricks application effect is very good.

Rebonded fired corundum bricks are made from sintered corundum aggregates and fines. The production process of fired corundum bricks is: batch material formulation, mixing, tempering, machine pressing, high-temperature sintering. RS-produced corundum bricks have better thermal shock resistance and slag corrosion resistance than other products, because a little amount of synthesized mullite clinker, silica, kyanite, or sillimanite concentrate powder is added into raw materials to form mullite during sintering. The quantity of fine powders also has a significant influence on corundum brick density and strength, the increase of fine powder can greatly increase corundum brick density and strength, especially the addition of ultra-micro powder greatly improves corundum bricks high-temperature performance.

Rebonded fused corundum bricks are made from fused corundum clinker aggregate and fine powders. During fused corundum bricks production, the raw materials are strictly selected to promise the good quality of corundum bricks. For brown corundum bricks production, brown corundum contained ferrosilicon or other impurities should be removed. For white corundum bricks production, flake-like crystalline sodium aluminate and other eutectics should be removed.

Fused corundum bricks have high purity, therefore, the sintering of fused corundum bricks is difficult, sintering temperature should be higher than 1800℃. RS ultra-high-temperature periodic kiln is specialized for fused refractory brick production.
