Properties of High Alumina Refractories After Exposure to Steam/H₂ Atmospheres
Selected properties of a dense fired alumina, a phosphate-bonded ramming mix, and a calcium aluminate cement-bounded castable were evaluated after exposure at 260 degree and 538 degree C to steam/H2 atmospheres. The modulus of rupture (MOR) of the dense alumina decreased with increasing steam pressure and degree of saturation. The calcium aluminate cement phases in the castable reacted most in 260 degree C steam and formed several hydrated phases that generally resulted in a higher MOR.
