TC11: Materials for Furnaces

TC11 discuses advanced refractory materials and worldwide industrial experience on glass melting furnaces. 

The material properties and application problems are reported and analyzed. 

Testing procedure and inspection methods for refractory materials will be recommended.

2016

Rongxing Bei: DURITAL AZ58 and DURITAL K99 EXTRA for the Superstructure of Glass Melting Furnaces.

Johannes Vetter: Thermochemical Regenerator - High Efficiency Heat Recovery for Oxy-Fired Glass Furnaces.

Anne Jans Faber: Project proposal - Reducing structural heat losses at glass Furnaces.

Anne Jans Faber: New CelSian CO+ sensor for burner control.

Marvin: The production at Ling Nan refractories, China and the quality control.

2017:

Sven-Roger Kahl (Ardagh Glass): The new requirements for refractories for multi-fuel hybrid furnaces

Bruno Malphettes (SEFPRO):  superstructure corrosion

Rongxing Bei (RHI): Overview of all possible refractories for crown and superstructure

Burak Izmirlioglu (Sisecam): The crown and superstructure refractories and glass defects

Simone Tiozzo (Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro): The glass defects from crown and superstructure

Esref Aydin (Ex TC11 Chairman): Catscratches and Cords

AnneJans Faber (Celsian): Methods and tools to study crown corrosion and heat losses of refractory walls

 

Next Steps

  • evaluation of blistering tests for fused cast materials.
  • evaluation of silica test.
  • Further discussion about the possibility for the Non-destructive measurement of refractory materials
    (inner structure, quality acceptance of the pristine material, corrosion follow up…).

 

Planned meetings

Oct. 22rd 2018, Düsseldorf, Germany, before glasstec.
