Crucial to the identity of the refractory material itself is how it performs in elevated temperatures - but this isn’t the only area where a refractory needs to excel. Certain applications require elevated levels of compressive strength and specific porosity profiles.
Charcoal briquettes are the economical choice when it comes to domestic solid fuel - and are desirable from a manufacturing point of view too.
Pyrite is an up and coming material for the production of solar cells - with high efficiencies and low costs potentially making low carbon power generation cheaper and more widely attainable for consumers.
Addition of glass powders can increase production efficiency, cost and the quality of bricks and ceramic glazes.
Maddox is a catalyst produced from pure manganese ore that has been treated in a special furnace using proprietary techniques.
A different kind of stored energy: far from the traditional application of anthracite as a fuel, it can be ground and incorporated into battery components such as anodes and casings.
Not all refractories are created equal: the acidic, basic and neutral classifications help the user in their choice of optimal refractory material.
Iron pyrite is an inexpensive and widely available material that finds use in iron production, affording interesting enhancements to process efficiency and final products.
Ground glass powder is the most common additive in the manufacture of rock/mineral wools for insulation products and other applications.
Here we’re going to look at some of the machines we have available in our plant, what minerals they process and a brief look at how each machine operates.
