The stability of refractory materials for use in magnesium electrolysis cells
- 20 Downloads
Results for a range of refractory materials for use in industrial magnesium electrolysis cells are reported. The Alkorit-98 and Alkor-94S corundum-based castables have shown superior performance characteristics; of these, a higher thermal stability was found in the low-cement Alkorit-98 owing to its more compact fine-porous structure.
