This study explores finding the best monolithic refractory to resist corrosion and penetration by anode, rod, and tube mill slags. It is a continuation of work presented at the 2015 Forum. The work expands now to include the search for an optimum refractory system for the working lining of shaft furnaces as well as the metal transfer and processing equipment downstream of the taphole. The study expands to include evaluation of colloidal silica bonded castables as well as cement bonded castables.
