"Two Mexican dolomites were characterized in order to discover their suitability for production of refractory brick.
The results were compared with other dolomites from American Companies. Some samples were burned in a gas fired Laboratory Furnace and others were obtained in the burned state after processing in Industrial Rotary Kilns.
The characterization procedures included X-Ray Diffraction, Scanning Auger Microprobe, DTA and TGA techniques, Chemical Analysis and Bulk Density measurements.
The procedure to control the quality of the dead-burned dolomite at the industrial level was established taking as the main criteria, bulk density, hydration susceptibility, and impurity levels"--Abstract, page ii.
