In order to cast refractory, for example, in recent years, China has built more than 30 cast-refractories enterprises, changing the reliance on imports of cast-cast refractory situation in China, the basic quality of their products to meet the glass melting furnace requirements. Exploration and establishment of alkaline refractory materials, silica bricks, zirconium corundum, mullite refractory and new unshaped refractories and other manufacturing enterprises supporting system. Create a strong enterprise that can provide refractory materials in the whole kiln.
Refractory glass kiln use less and less consumption. As refractory quality and performance increase, the life of the glass furnace will be longer and longer. Currently, the new float glass furnace design life of up to 10 years, ordinary glass kiln life of 5 to 7 years, special glass kiln life expectancy of up to 2 years. In other words, the specific consumption of refractory materials will be smaller and smaller. Traditional silica brick, ordinary magnesia its dosage will be significantly reduced, while the quality of casting refractory material will be substantially increased. In addition, the new unshaped refractory material will also be a large number of glass melting furnace applications.
Glass and refractory production enterprises to study the optimal allocation of refractory glass and refractory production enterprises to strengthen technical cooperation, in addition to research and development for glass furnace refractory new products, should focus on the different parts of glass furnace refractory optimization Configuration, more reasonable extension of furnace life and optimize the relevant technical indicators.
Refractory materials for glass kilns will continue to evolve as the glass manufacturing industry develops. Refractories for glass kilns and glass manufacturing industry will promote each other in terms of development, promote each other technically and further interdependencies in operation obvious.
