Abstract

Channel induction furnaces can operate at temperatures as high as 2000 °C, which requires the use of high-temperature refractory materials resistant to corrosion. CaO, a conventional component of the corundum-containing refractory castables, produces a degrading effect on high-temperature properties; for this reason, low-and ultralow cement materials fail to meet the needed requirements. Therefore a cement-free refractory of the DALCAST series in the Al2O3-MgO binary system based on an Al2O3 fully hydratable binder has been developed. Physical properties (strength and hardening behavior) of a standard low-cement castable and a newly developed product based on the results of their practical use in channel induction furnaces are compared and discussed.
