Refractory bricks for iron ore reduction reactors

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #5766542.

Refractory materials (typically refractory bricks) having the exposed working surface treated to form a silica sand glazed surface for their utilization in iron ore reduction reactors, for example of the moving bed type, fluidized bed type, rotary kilns, or the like, and method and apparatus for treating refractory bricks before installation as well as for treating refractory linings already installed in existing iron ore reduction plants, which produce direct reduced iron (DRI), prereduced iron ores, or the like. Some operational problems, involving adherence and buildup of aggregates from small metallic iron particles on the refractory lining of said reduction reactor, are minimized with a corresponding decrease in operating costs and an increase in the availability of the DRI producing plant.
