The Importance of Refractory in Steel Industry

  1. Lower Production Cost: In steel manufacturing, common materials deteriorate rapidly, which can lead to frequent maintenance, downtime and significant production losses. However, refractories can withstand these harsh operating conditions. This ensures the stability of high-temperature equipment in the steel industry.
  2. Increase Productivity: Kerui Refractory materials improve the production efficiency of the steel industry by providing excellent high-temperature resistance, insulation, and chemical stability. These properties can extend the service life of the furnaces, improve equipment productivity and energy utilization.
  3. Improve Safety Performance: The steel furnace refractory helps maintain a safe working environment for personnel in the steel industry, as it acts as an insulator to minimize heat transfer to the outside surface of the furnace. This helps to prevent overheating, reduce accident risk, and improve overall workplace safety.[/one_third_last]

Different Types of Steel Furnace Refractory Materials

There are several types of refractory in steel industry, each specifically designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the high-temp steel making process. Meanwhile, these materials are carefully selected based on their properties, chemical composition and application requirements. Some common types of steel furnace refractories include:

Magnesium Refractory in Steel Industry

Fused Magnesia

Fused magnesia is raw magnesia sand melted at high-temp and then cooled to form dense, high-purity magnesia sand crystals. it has excellent resistance to alkaline slag and high-temp environmental corrosion.

Properties of Refractories in Steel Making

Refractories in steel making possess specific properties that are crucial for their successful application in demanding and high-temp environments. At the same time, these properties ensure the optimal performance and longevity of refractory linings, which directly impact the efficiency and quality of the steel making process.

Sample Testing of Kerui Steel Refractories

High Temperature Resistance
Steel Industry involves temperatures that can exceed 1500°C (2732°F). In addition, high temperature refractory bricks must maintain their structural integrity and mechanical strength at these extreme temperatures.
Thermal Insulation
Refractory material with low thermal conductivity acts as an effective insulator, to reduce heat loss from the furnace and improve energy efficiency. Thus, efficient insulation ensures reduced energy consumption.
Slag Resistance
Slag is a by-product of steel making and is highly corrosive to refractory materials. Effective slag resistance prevents penetration and erosion of the slag, to ensure its durability and maintain the integrity of the furnace.
Thermal Shock Resistance
During the steel making process, the rapid change of temperature can cause thermal shock to the refractory material. So refractories that are resistant to prevent cracking can withstand sudden temperature changes.
Chemical Resistance
Refractories have to be resistant to the corrosive effects of molten metals, slag and other chemicals used in the steel making process. Thus, this property ensures that the lining doesn’t react with molten steel or slag.
