Abstract

"Though the method of determining the pyrometric cone equivalent of various silicate materials used in the refractories industry has been standardized by the American Society for Testing Materials (A.S.T.M. Designation: C24-35) as to the rate of heating, method of preparation of sample, mounting of test cones, and the interpretation of results, there still remains some variation in the results obtained by different operators using different types of P.C.E. furnaces. The three types of furnaces most generally used are: the Fulton-Coursen Granular Resistance Furnace, the Denver Fireclay Furnace developed by the American Refractories Institute using gas, and the General Refractories' Oxy-acetylene furnace. The characteristics of these furnaces may influence the results obtained in testing. It is the purpose of this paper to study such effect"--Introduction, page 1.
