High alumina castables: a comparison among various sol-gel bonding systems

High alumina castables: a comparison among various sol-gel bonding systems A comparison among various sol-gel bonding systems has been done for high alumina castable refractory. Four different sol systems, namely, alumina, boehmite, mullite, and spinel, have been synthesized and used individually as sole binder in high alumina castable system with particle size distribution coefficient of 0.23 as per Dinger and Funk model. The castable compositions were processed conventionally and properties were evaluated after heat treatment at different temperatures. These developed sol-containing compositions were also compared against commercially available silica sol-containing composition prepared under exactly similar conditions. Mullite sol-bonded composition showed higher cold strength, whereas spinel sol resulted in better hot properties. Improved thermal shock resistance against commercial sol binder was observed in spinel and mullite sol-containing compositions, which may be associated with the microcracking effect produced from the thermal expansion mismatch. The slag corrosion resistance was also observed better for the spinel sol-containing composition. The commercial silica sol-bonded compositions showed higher strength due to its higher solid content but resulted in inferior hot and corrosion properties. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of the Australian Ceramic Society Springer Journals

Abstract

A comparison among various sol-gel bonding systems has been done for high alumina castable refractory. Four different sol systems, namely, alumina, boehmite, mullite, and spinel, have been synthesized and used individually as sole binder in high alumina castable system with particle size distribution coefficient of 0.23 as per Dinger and Funk model. The castable compositions were processed conventionally and properties were evaluated after heat treatment at different temperatures. These developed sol-containing compositions were also compared against commercially available silica sol-containing composition prepared under exactly similar conditions. Mullite sol-bonded composition showed higher cold strength, whereas spinel sol resulted in better hot properties. Improved thermal shock resistance against commercial sol binder was observed in spinel and mullite sol-containing compositions, which may be associated with the microcracking effect produced from the thermal expansion mismatch. The slag corrosion resistance was also observed better for the spinel sol-containing composition. The commercial silica sol-bonded compositions showed higher strength due to its higher solid content but resulted in inferior hot and corrosion properties.
