The report "Application of Alumina Powder in Refractories" describes the classification of performance indexes of Alumina Powder from three aspects: chemical composition, physical index and application index, clarifies the difference between calcination and active Alumina Powder, and gives how to select single-peak, double-peak and multi-peak oxidation for castables. The specific effects of impurity elements in alumina powder on refractories and their roles in refractories are introduced in detail.
In the report of "Application of Plate Corundum in Refractories", Shao always uses the explanation of "Alumina Alumina Crystals with Well-developed Alumina Crystals, Abnormally Grown Crystals can reach 40-200 um, Pores within Crystals < 15 Micron" of Aluminum America Company to summarize the Plate Corundum, and introduces the production process of Plate Corundum, from impurity content and bulk density. From the same angle, the slab corundum, white corundum and dense corundum are distinguished. Suggestions on the application and selection of slab corundum, white corundum and dense corundum at different temperatures are given. Patient answers to the questions about the use of sintered corundum and white corundum in air permeable bricks are given.
Professor Ye Guotian, School of Materials Science and Engineering, Zhengzhou University
After Shao's brilliant report, Professor Ye Guotian, School of Materials Science and Engineering, Zhengzhou University, presented a report on the effect of micro-powder morphology on the fluidity of pumping castables in pipes. Mr. Ye compared the pumping of concrete pumping and wet spraying castables in pipelines, and compared the particle size and appearance of silicon powder and alumina powder. It was pointed out that the morphology of micro powder was very important to the fluidity of pumping castables.
Dr. Xu Guotao, Chief Expert and Professor of Refractories, WISCO Research Institute
The report of Dr. Xu Guotao, chief expert and professor of refractories in WISCO Research Institute, on the application technology of alumina raw materials in refractories of iron system, adopts case method. From the point of view of application in iron and steel enterprises, it is pointed out that refractory technicians should first understand the principle, clarify the application direction, density, line change, and so on. Burning loss, seismic strength and other indicators are not necessarily proportional to service life. It is necessary to consider the comprehensive performance of raw materials to achieve a better cost-effective ratio, and win-win situation for raw materials, materials and iron and steel enterprises.
Mr. Gu Ligang, former Director of Research and Development in Asia-Pacific Region of Vesuvius and Director of Technology of Tianjin Associated Mining Company
Mr. Gu Ligang, former director of R&D in the Asia-Pacific region of Vesuvius and director of Tianjin Associated Mining Technology, described the application of silica in cement-free silica-alumina castables based on the test results of cement-free silica-alumina castables. Silicon is a calcium-free sol powder of aluminium and silicon. It has the advantages of long storage life and less addition. Then, the data and charts show that the cementless castable with silica has the characteristics of high strength, easy demoulding and strong explosion resistance in low temperature drying.
Professor Wang Zhoufu, School of Materials and Metallurgy, Wuhan University of Science and Technology
Professor Wang Zhoufu, School of Materials and Metallurgy, Wuhan University of Science and Technology, gave a report on the hydration behavior and regulation of hydrated alumina. The classification of amorphous refractories according to their bonding modes and the requirements for bonding agents were explained. The preparation methods of hydrated alumina-p-Al2O3 were introduced in detail, although in corundum and corundum spinel. The application of quality, aluminium-magnesia, magnesia castables and iron groove castables, however, due to the rapid hydration speed, the hardening speed of materials is faster, the fluidity is poor, and the increase of water content affects the compactness of materials. The dehydration of spear specimens during baking process can easily lead to material bursting and low strength at medium temperature. Mr. Wang also showed the effect of temperature, additives, nano-silica, silica sol and magnesium oxide on the hydration behavior of hydrated alumina and the effect of dispersant on the rheological properties of hydrated alumina slurry by using specific experimental data and charts.
