What Is Kerui Silica Refractory Brick?
Kerui silica refractory brick adopts natural silica as primary material, plus appropriate amount of mineralizer to promote the conversion of quartz to tridymite. Due to high content of silica, this brick belongs to acid refractory brick and has better resistance to acid slag erosion. Customers often purchase fire brick with silica used in high temperature furnaces with strong acid corrosion.
Kerui silica refractory brick is also known as silica brick, silicon brick, silicon refractory brick, silica fire brick and so on.

Manufacturing Process of Kerui Silica Brick
With advanced manufacturing equipment and technology, Kerui produces silica brick with superior quality. Here is detailed description of the manufacturing process of Kerui silica brick.
Kerui quality inspection department sorts high quality silica for production. The fully automatic batching system weighs and batches SiO2 and other additives precisely. The mixing mill blends these materials for more than 5 minutes. The brick pulp will be transported to the molding system.
There are more than 20 sets of high tonnes press machines that can realize the accurate dimension of silicon bricks. Kerui supports customized shapes and sizes on the silica fire brick. Besides, molded bricks will be measured and weighed twice. Standard silica firebricks can enter the drying kiln.
The molded silica fire bricks need to be gradually evaporated to remove water. The drying kiln heats up gradually, but the temperature is always below 500°C (932°F). Drying is to reduce the risk of heating and cracking during sintering, and to improve the efficiency of sintering.
When making refractory bricks in reducing atmosphere, silica refractory bricks are sintered slowly at 1350°C – 1430°C (2462°F – 2606°F). When the sintering kiln is heated to 1450°C (2642°F), there is a total volume expansion of about 1.5-2.2%. This expansion will seal the brick joints and ensure the structural strength.
After cooling down, Kerui quality inspection department will check various indicators of silica refractory bricks carefully and then they will conduct random inspection. Qualified silicon bricks will be packed and sent to customers’ locations. Meanwhile, Kerui cooperates with world famous logistics companies to ensure safe and on-time delivery.
Excellent Performance of Kerui Silica Brick
Due to the high silica content, kerui siliceous refractory bricks can resist the erosion of acidic slag and other substances such as CaO, FeO, Fe2O3, etc. This is one of the most important properties of silica refractory bricks.
Silicon refractory bricks have excellent refractoriness, as high as 1690°C-1710°C (3074°F – 3110°F). This characteristic shows that silicon can not be melted when acting in an environment of up to 1710°C (3110°F). As a result, high refractoriness expands the scope of use of fire heat bricks with silica.
The structure of siliceous refractory bricks is very stable and can reach a high load softening temperature of 1620°C – 1650°C (2498°F – 3002°F). Therefore, this kind of brick has good resistance in the face of high temperature and load.
The compact silica refractory brick structure results in high thermal conductivity, which enables an even distribution of heat in the kiln and increases the efficiency of the heat treatment process. What’s more, high thermal conductivity makes silica bricks better able to withstand thermal shock, which reduces the risk of brick cracking in the face of rapid temperature changes. Thus, it can improve the life of silicon refractory bricks.
What Is Silica Refractory Brick Used for?
Kerui silica refractory bricks has wide applications for different parts of coke ovens, glass kilns, hot blast furnaces, electric arc furnaces and so on.
Silica Brick for Coke Ovens
Because the quality of silica fire bricks plays a key role in energy saving, consumption reduction, environmental protection and other performances of the coking oven. Silica brick is the main refractory material of coke oven. Meanwhile, Kerui silica bricks for coke ovens have excellent stability and slag resistance, good thermal conductivity and low quartz content.
Silica Refractory Brick for Glass Kilns
The silica refractory brick for glass kilns have relatively high requirements for resistance to acid and alkali steam erosion. Therefore, silica fire bricks for glass kilns have the characteristics of high purity, high density and high load softness. Besides, customers in glass making industry can also use this brick as insulation linings.
Silica Refractory Brick for Hot Blast Furnaces
Customers prefer to use silica bricks for hot blast stoves in high temperature areas, such as regenerative upper parts, combustion chambers and so on. When selecting silica bricks for hot blast stoves, and they must have the characteristics of high stability, high creep resistance, high load soft temperature and so on.
In addition to the above uses, Kerui silicon bricks can also be used in a wide range of industries and furnace. If you’re not sure, please contact Kerui to get a clear reply.
