The importance of recycling of refractory materials

Refractory materials should be disposed of when they complete their lifetime or subjected to the recycling process to be reassessed. In the last 20 years, refractory industry favored the recycling process and minimized the damage to the environment, as well as reduced the implementation costs. Research show that there is no difference between the thermal stability of the converted refractory materials and the newly produc...

What is the lifetime of refractory materials?

Refractory materials, like all other industrial materials, have a limited lifetime. After the end of their lifespan, they won’t be able to fulfill their purpose. In other words, they start to degrade at elevated temperatures or corrosive chemical components. Refractory materials will fill their lifespan even if they are not subject to an accident. Once this happens, removal of the refractory material and recycling b...
