What is Refractory?
Refractories are heat resistant materials that constitute the linings for high temperature furnaces and reactors and other processing units. In addition to being resistant to thermal stress and other physical phenomena induced by heat, refractories most also withstand physical wear and corrosion by chemical agents. Refractories are more heat resistant than metals and are required for heating applications above 10000 F (15000C) when in service.
Refractory products fall into tow categories- brick or fired shapes and specialties or monolithic refractories made from clay ash etc. with other chemicals.
What are Refractory Made of?
Refractories are produced from natural and synthetic materials, usually nonmetallic or combinations of compounds and minerals such as alumina, fireclays, bouxite, chromite, dolomite, magnestic, silicon carbide, zirconia, and paddy husk.
What are refractory use for:
In general refractories are used to build structures subjected to high temperatures ranging from the simple to sophisticated e.g. fireplace brick lining to reentry heat shidds for the space shuttle. In industry, they are used to line boilers and furnaces of all types reactors stills and so forth.
Refractory brick from the ashes of the husk of paddy with clay:
Generally refractory brick is made of different materials. But are go into production of refractory brick with ashes of husk paddy. We will use the wastage of paddy and save the cost of other materials to make this product.
We are special in full series of refractories for glass furnace, and we can sapping a kind of good quality. Refractory materials, including shaped and unshaped. They are widely used in kind of kinds furnaces, hat blast and other apparatus in metallurgical, cement industry, glass furnace-
It has different kinds of use-
Silica brick for glass and cement industry.
Fused cast and sintered refractory products for glass industry-
- Fused cast refracotries
- Sintered refracotries
- Monolithic refracotries
- Expendable refracotries
The production process of refractory brick from paddy husk ashes is systematic process. Here we are discussing the process.
- First we collect raw materials like paddy husk, clay ect.
- After collecting the paddy husk we make ashes from the husk by firing it.
- Then we mix the clay and ashes 2:1 or 1:2
- After that we mix. Bauxite with the mixture and make a shape of brick by press machine.
- Then we keep it under sun for drying them.
- After sun dry we put the dry brick into furnace at 1200-15000C and we use this brick for cement or glass industries.
- Then we cool them by a cooler and our production process end.
These bricks are used in furnace for cement and glass industries.
Sources of raw materials
We collect the husk from different rice mills and collect clay from sellers from Narayangonj. Then we can collect this materials at a lower price because the land of Bangladesh is very fertile and our country is agricultural based. The paddy husk is waste materials sometimes it is used for nothing. We are trying to used this wastage for silica brick because there is 90% silica in rice husk.
We are careful about our raw materials-
- We will collect our raw materials through our own vehicle.
- We also provide our goods to the customers by our own vehicles it they are interested.
