Main factors affecting the thermal stability of aluminosilicate refractories

  • N. V. Pitak

It is shown that the partial pressure of oxygen and thermocycling in variable gas media are the main factors characterizing the thermal stability of aluminosilicate refractories. The obtained functional dependences of the variation of the properties of the refractories are described by equations.
