Description of Fire Brick
Fire brick generally consists of natural ores, such as bauxite, silica, magnesium site, and other raw materials. Different chemical compositions bring fire bricks divided features. Fire brick, also known as refractory brick, high temp fire brick or fire retardant brick, is yellowish or brownish in color. It can stand high temperatures of 1580-1770℃ (2876-3218℉). In addition, it can stand various physical and chemical changes and mechanical actions at high temperatures. Therefore, brick can be used as a high-temperature building material and structural material for building kilns and various thermal equipment.
Exactly How Much Do Kerui Fire Bricks Cost?
The exact cost of Kerui fire brick is determined by many factors. Therefore, the most efficient way to get a clear price list is that you send a clear inquiry and Kerui will reply soon. You can include detailed information in your inquiry, such as kiln type, operating temperature, working environment, purchase quantity, estimated arrival time, etc. The more detailed information you provide, a clearer cost you’ll get.
Factors That Influence How Much Do Fire Bricks Cost
Types of Supplier Influence Fire Bricks Cost
If you contact a middleman or agent who sells high heat bricks, the end customer may need to spend a little more after quoting layer by layer. But what if you contact the source fire brick supplier directly? As one of the top three in China’s industry, Kerui is proud to tell you that as a manufacturer of refractory bricks, we are committed to providing customers with ex-factory prices and reducing customer costs. Contacting suppliers directly can save communication costs.
Purchase Volume Influence Fire Bricks Cost
Generally speaking, suppliers are more inclined to provide discounts to customers who purchase in large quantities. Because for a manufacturer like Kerui with an intelligent factory, purchasing refractory bricks in large quantities can reduce the production cost of each link, such as equipment adjustment, labor costs and so on. If you are thinking about how to reduce the production cost of fire bricks, we recommend that you consider bulk purchases.
Raw Material Influence Fire Bricks Cost
As we all know, the raw material quality of refractory bricks will directly affect its performance. So how does Kerui achieve the balance between cost and quality? First of all, Kerui is located in an area rich in mineral resources and can obtain high-quality raw materials at relatively low prices. Secondly, in order to keep the promise of high-quality products and ensure fire brick temperature, Kerui adopts a strict quality inspection system, and only raw materials that meet the requirements can enter Kerui factory.
Manufacturing Process Influence Fire Bricks Cost
In the manufacturing process of refractory bricks, ordinary and advanced production processes also have an impact on the cost of refractory bricks. For example, ordinary fire bricks need to be pressed and sintered at high temperature, and then cooled to a safe temperature before packaging. Another more advanced process is fused cast, where the raw material is melted in an electric arc furnace at elevated temperatures and then slowly cooled to the desired shape. The purity and performance of the fused fire bricks are better, but the price is also slightly higher.
How to Purchase Suitable Fire Bricks at Reasonable Cost?
To purchase a pallet of fire bricks at a reasonable cost, you’d better know what kind of brick you need. Then you can tell Kerui about the brick you need and we’ll reply with detailed cost soon. Here are Kerui fire bricks for your options:
High Alumina Brick
High alumina brick mainly contains more than 48% Al2O3. This kind of fire brick is formed and calcined from bauxite and other materials, which have high alumina content. The brick is a high-quality refractory material made of high-purity alumina and silicate. High alumina bricks can be widely used in various industries.
Clay fire brick refers to clay products with an Al2O3 content of 30%-40%. The mineral composition of clay bricks is mainly kaolinite and other impurities. Meanwhile, the brick is a kind of weak acid refractory product, which can resist the erosion of acid. The refractoriness of clay brick is as high as 1690-1730℃ (3074-3146℉ )
Mullite brick, a high-quality alumina refractory material, is mainly composed of mullite as the main crystal phase. Al2O3 and SiO2 are the main compositions of mullite fire bricks. The refractory brick contains an average of 65% to 75% alumina. It has high refractoriness, which can reach above 1790℃ (3254 ℉).
Carbon brick, a high-quality fire brick, is made of anthracite, coke, and graphite, as well as pitch, tar, and anthracene oil binders. This kind of brick is resistant to the erosion of molten metal and various slags, but it is easy to oxidize. High-temp industries always use it for masonry bottom and bosh of blast furnace.
Silica brick is an acid-fired material. The mineral composition of silicon refractory bricks is phosphoquartz 78% to 86%, cristobalite 13% to 15%, and quartz 4% to 7%. The load softening temperature of silica brick is 1640-1670℃ (2984-3038℉). Therefore, volume of the brick is stable under high temperatures for a long time without deformation.
Corundum brick refers to fire products with an alumina content greater than 90% and corundum as the main crystal phase. Its temperature compressive strength is up to 340MPa. Its high load softening start temperature is greater than 1700℃ (3092℉). There are two types of sintered corundum bricks and fused corundum bricks.
Magnesia brick is made of periclase. The refractoriness of it can reach above 2000℃ (3632℉). Load-softening temperature of magnesia brick will change greatly with the melting point of the cement phase and the amount of liquid phase produced at high temperatures. The load softening temperature of it is between 1520-1600℃ ( 2768-2912℉).
How to Reduce Fire Bricks Cost for Buyers?
Assess Your Needs to Reduce Fire Bricks Cost
There are many types of fire bricks. Selecting fire bricks should consider where and how to use them according to your special needs. You can refer to the different service temperatures, slag resistance and compressive strength of different refractory bricks to choose the one you need. Then you need to determine the purchasing needs, including the type of fire brick, size, quantity, etc.
