Abstract

The base mix refractory concrete is corundum-based, containing corundum as refractory aggregate and CAC as hydraulic binder, with a spinel as an additive. The authors investigated the dehydration reactions which occur from the moment when water is added (at the beginning of components mixing), to the moment when installed refractory concrete lining is put into the service. Sintering process kinetic of low-cement content refractory concrete was investigated by means of differential thermal analysis at four different heating rates (5, 10, 20, and 30 °C/min). Thus, temperature was increased from 20 to 1100 °C. It was noticed that first dehydration step occurs at lower temperatures, indicating at a desorption of physically adsorbed and interlayer water molecules. Second dehydration step, at higher temperatures is due to dehydroxylation of the lattices and decomposition of the interlayer anions.
