Magnesitas Navarras participated in the LVII National Congress of the Spanish Society of Ceramics and Glass (SECV) that will be held in Castellón on October 26, 27, 28 and 29 as part of the dissemination of the positive and encouraging results of this project Life 5 Refract. In this Congress, the poster “Evaluation of masses with the use of refractory recycling by means of static corrosion studies” will be presented, which compiles the corrosion tests carried out on the new refractory masses with recycled raw material that have been developed in the above commented LIFE5Refract Project .
The objective of this research has been to carry out a study of the affection of the steel slag on new basic refractory materials developments with recycling, using a static corrosion test. The study simulates the thermal behaviour and chemical interaction between the refractory and the slag in the different steelworks ladles to foresee the behavior of the refractory mass in its final industrial application.
The study results allowed the successful execution of industrial tests, observing an adequate behavior of the new formulations with refractory waste in certain applications in steelworks.
