Title

Stability of the Refractory-Bond Phases in High Alumina Refractories in Steam-CO Atmospheres

Abstract

The chemical resistance of the bond phases in a dense fired alumina, phosphate-bonded ramming mix and calcium aluminate cement-bonded castable to five steam--CO atmospheres at 385, 750, and 1015 psia and approx. = 260 and approx. = 950/sup 0/C was evaluated from physical property changes, x-ray diffraction, DTA/TGA and Auger electron spectroscopy. A decrease in the modulus of rupture for the dense fired alumina exposed to steam-containing atmospheres at approx. = 260OC corresponded to an increase in Ca segregation at the external surfaces. The AIPO4-bond phase was sensitive to saturated steam only. The calcium aluminate cement-bond phases reacted to form CaCO3, Ca(HCO2)2, AIO(OH) (boehmite) and hydrated calcium aluminate phases.
