An Investigation of the Effect of Pyrolytic Liquid Obtained From Waste Tire on the Corrosion Behaviours of MgO-C Refractories


In this study, corrosion behaviours of MgO-C refractories by incorporating different binders as phenolic resin and pyrolytic liquid obtained by waste tire pyrolysis were investigated. Moreover, the effect of porosity on the corrosion resistance of those refractories according to types of binders was examined. The microstructures of corroded MgO-C refractories were characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analyser (EDX). Experimental studies showed that refractories produced by the use of pyrolytic liquid had higher amount of porosity due to its lower binder effect and lower corrosion resistance than that of refractories produced by incorporation of phenolic resin as a binder.
