The effects of highly porous refractory materials on steel ladle heat loss
"The purpose of this research was to investigate methods of lowering the energy requirements and improve overall thermal efficiency during steel melting. A low thermal conductivity, low density, alumina based refractory material developed at UMR with porosity in excess of 75% was tested for its potential to reduce heat losses in the ladle. The performance of the new material was compared to low density magnesia and 70% alumina castable, two of the most widely used materials in steel foundries"--Abstract, leaf iii.
