Title: Selection and Use of Refractory Concretes in the Steel Plant
Author(s): R. L. Wessel
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 179-222
Keywords: carbon dioxide; compressive strength; corrosion resistance; drying; furnaces; installing; plants; refractory concretes; repairs; steel plants
Abstract:The use of refractory castables in steelplant applications is expanding continually, and their use has been accelerated by periods of energy and/or fired-refractory-material shortages. . .Projections for the future of refractory concretes in the steel industry suggest a trend toward the use of high-purity and synthetic raw materials and greater interest in composity materials containing metallic fibers.
