2. TYPES OF FURNACES, REFRACTORIES AND INSULATION This section describes the types of furnaces, refractories and insulation materials used in industry. It also gives criteria for selecting refractory types for optimum results. Types of furnaces Furnaces are broadly classified into two types based on the heat generation method: combustion. Evaluation of refractories for aluminum-recycling furnaces. Report of Investigations/ Technical Report Davis, E.G. The Bureau of Mines studied the problem of corundum formation on refractory linings in aluminum-recycling furnaces. A laboratory test was developed for evaluating refractories in contact with molten recycled aluminum and. The refractories that performed best in resisting attack by the melts were high-alumina types, and of the refractories tested, the most resistant was a pct-Al, pct-Cr refractory.

This book details the peculiarities of the requirements for refractories designed for aluminium metallurgical process: reduction, cast house, and anode lfcmalta.com: Andrey Yurkov. Material removed from carbon bake furnaces used to manufacture anodes for the production of aluminum metal has historically been disposed by landfill. This material is composed primarily of 50% alumina refractory. in , Alcoa completed a highly successful program to reuse the spent refractories. In the aluminum industry, the refractory property requirements are quite different from that of steel making. Although the temperature of aluminum refining and alloying process is much lower than for steel, it has the unique problem of penetration in the lfcmalta.com by: Refractories in aluminum holding and melting furnaces are corroded, in service, by the action of molten metal, under the influence of the surrounding atmosphere, as well as the thermal gradient.

Evaluation of refractories for aluminum recycling furnaces / (Pittsburgh, Pa.: U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, ), by E. G. Davis (page images at HathiTrust). For many years, the refractories industry, in conjunction with the aluminum industry, has been conducting research on various kinds of refractories specifically for the aluminum industry. Other areas of the aluminum process that require significant amounts of refractories are the anode baking pit furnaces, melting and holding furnaces, and. J Stones, in Electrical Engineer's Reference Book (Sixteenth Edition), Arcing devices. Electric arc furnaces, arc welders and electric discharge lamps are all forms of electric arcing lfcmalta.com devices are highly non-linear loads the current waveform of which is characterised by an increasing arc current limited only by the network impedance. With this culture of continuous reinvestment, Zampell continues its success in the metallurgical industries, building its new refractories growth on steel furnaces, secondary aluminum melters and holders, heat treat furnaces, forge furnaces, investment casters, and bright annealing furnace work.
