Improvement of Chemical and Thermal Properties of Fire-Clay Refractory Bricks
Abu-Hamatteh, Z.S.H. and Al-Taie, M.

Abstract:
The current investigation examines the possibility of using locally available raw materials for the production of fire-clay refractory bricks. The basic raw material is Kaolinite clay, which was used for the production of the grog (Chmotte) and as binder clay. The aim of this research work is to improve the chemical and thermal properties of fire clay bricks by adding different percentages of Al2O3 to the clay. This study describes the results of tests carried out in order to find the best granulometric composition of the chamotte, the proper chamotte binder ratio, the chemical resistance, gas permeability, thermal shock resistance and the most suitable processing conditions.
