The characteristics of andalusite, which is a natural raw material used without prior firing, are presented together with physical and service properties of andalusite refractories. The main spheres of application of refractories based on andalusite in ferrous metallurgy are described, namely, in air heaters of blast furnaces, mobile mixers, and hot-metal transfer, steel-casting, and intermediate ladles. Andalusite refractories are also used for auxiliary equipment. Advantages of the use of andalusite refractory materials and articles as compared to other kinds of refractory materials, including bauxite-base refractories, are described.
