Features of phase transitions in electrolyzer hearth block material between joints

Features of phase transitions in electrolyzer hearth block material between joints Phase transitions are considered for silicon oxycarbide material between joints in hearth blocks under aluminum electrolyzer operating conditions. It is established that in the electrolyzer there is formation of aluminum subcarbide, and also there is conversion of silicon carbide polytypes as a result of impurities of aluminum, sodium, magnesium, copper and iron. Due to phase transitions there is a reduction in joint strength, and therefore it is undesirable to use material based on corundum and black silicon carbide in hearth joints between blocks for aluminum electrolyzers. Use of pure α-SiO2 free from impurities is recommended for this purpose. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Refractories and Industrial Ceramics Springer Journals

Abstract

Phase transitions are considered for silicon oxycarbide material between joints in hearth blocks under aluminum electrolyzer operating conditions. It is established that in the electrolyzer there is formation of aluminum subcarbide, and also there is conversion of silicon carbide polytypes as a result of impurities of aluminum, sodium, magnesium, copper and iron. Due to phase transitions there is a reduction in joint strength, and therefore it is undesirable to use material based on corundum and black silicon carbide in hearth joints between blocks for aluminum electrolyzers. Use of pure α-SiO2 free from impurities is recommended for this purpose.
