Unburned Carbon-free Brick

Al2O3 - MgO Carbon-free Bricks

Unburned carbon-free bricks are high-tech refractory products offering high corrosion resistance and low thermal conductivity versus products containing carbon, while also ensuring a reduction in thermal losses. Its carbon-free design facilitates a drastic reduction in carbon pick up into steel, helping customers to reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impact.

Is it possible to measure the reduction in thermal loss generated by this solution?

Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories and its partner companies employ a combination of computer simulations and specific customer-focused technical proposals to generate a detailed report on potential thermal loss reduction. Using this information, customers can make informed decisions around the use of carbon-free products.

What are the benefits of adding Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ unburned carbon-free bricks to steel ladles and other equipment?

The addition of unburned carbon-free bricks to steel ladles and other equipment will result in a reduction in energy losses due to their lower thermal conductivity versus conventional products containing carbon. This feature will indirectly contribute to a reduction in CO2 emissions and a more environmentally friendly process.
