Steps taken to determine the cause of failure of a shotcreted lining in a Sinter Plant Mist Separator included testing and characterization of several refractory concretes and a detailed analysis of the most likely causes for failure. Test methods and results, environmental characterization and a step by step analysis of possible causes for failure are described. Completion of the study led to elimination of the present stack material combination with replacement by a 316 stainless steel stack.
