Castable Refractory Cement
Castable refractory cement is a type of refractory material that is used in a variety of applications, from high-temperature furnaces and kilns to boilers and incinerators.
It is a type of hydraulic cement that sets and hardens when mixed with water, making it an ideal material for creating custom shapes and linings in refractory applications.
PER Refractories produces refractory castables that are widely used in high-temperature industries such as steel, cement, and petrochemicals because of their excellent insulating and heat-resistant properties.
Types of Castable Refractory Cement
Low Cement Castable (LCC)
Low cement castable refractory cement is a type of material that contains a low amount of cement, usually less than 8%. Instead, it contains a higher amount of alumina, silica, and other additives.
LCC has a low porosity and excellent resistance to thermal shock, making it ideal for use in applications such as blast furnaces, ladles, and tundishes.
Self-flowing castable refractory cement is a type of material that is designed to flow and self-level when poured. It’s ideal for use in hard-to-reach areas where casting or gunning is difficult.
Self-flowing castable has excellent strength and resistance to thermal shock, making it ideal for use in applications such as furnaces, incinerators, and kilns.
Insulating castable refractory cement is a lightweight, low-density material used to insulate high-temperature equipment. It’s made of a blend of lightweight aggregates such as perlite or vermiculite and a binding agent such as cement.
Insulating castable refractory cement is commonly used in the petrochemical and power industries to insulate furnace linings, walls, and roofs.
Conventional castable refractory cement is made of a blend of cement, aggregates, and additives. It has excellent strength and resistance to abrasion and erosion, making it ideal for use in applications such as cement kilns, incinerators, and boilers.
Conventional castable refractory cement is also used in the petrochemical and steel industries.
What is Castable Refractory Cement?
Castable refractory cement is a mixture of refractory aggregates, binders, and additives that are combined with water to create a dense, strong, and heat-resistant material.
The aggregates used in castable refractory cement can be made from a variety of materials, such as alumina, silica, and magnesia, while the binders used can be cement, calcium aluminate, or other materials.
The additives are used to improve the workability, setting time, and other properties of the cement.
Properties of Castable Refractory Cement
Castable refractory cement has several properties that make it ideal for use in high-temperature applications. These properties include:
1. High Refractoriness: It can withstand high temperatures, making it ideal for use in furnaces, kilns, and other high-temperature applications.
2. High Compressive Strength: It has high compressive strength, which makes it resistant to mechanical stress, erosion, and abrasion.
3. Low Thermal Conductivity: It has low thermal conductivity, which helps to reduce heat loss and energy consumption in high-temperature applications.
4. Chemical Resistance: It is resistant to chemical attack and can withstand exposure to acidic or alkaline environments.
5. Wear Resistance: Castable refractory cement is resistant to wear and tear, making it ideal for use in abrasive environments.
Applications of Castable Refractory Cement
Castable refractory cement is used in a variety of industries and applications, including:
1. Iron and Steel Industry: Castable refractory cement is used to line furnaces, ladles, and other equipment in the iron and steel industry.
2. Cement Industry: It is used to line rotary kilns and other equipment in the cement industry.
