Dead burned magnesite (DBM) is a refractory material produced by calcining magnesite ore at high temperatures. It is a highly refractory material with excellent physical and chemical properties, making it ideal for a wide range of demanding applications in the steel, cement, glass, and chemical industries.
DBM is characterized by its high melting point, chemical resistance, and thermal shock resistance. It is also a very stable material, with minimal shrinkage and expansion at high temperatures. These properties make DBM an ideal choice for applications where high temperatures and harsh conditions are present.
Applications of Dead Burned Magnesite
DBM is used in a wide variety of applications, including:
- Steel industry: DBM is used in linings for steel ladles, tundishes, and furnaces. It is also used in the production of refractory bricks and shapes.
- Cement industry: DBM is used in linings for rotary kilns and other cement processing equipment.
- Glass industry: DBM is used in linings for glass furnaces and other glass processing equipment.
- Chemical industry: DBM is used in linings for chemical reactors and other chemical processing equipment.
Advantages of Dead Burned Magnesite
DBM offers a number of advantages over other refractory materials, including:
- High melting point: DBM has a melting point of over 2800°C, making it one of the most refractory materials available.
- Chemical resistance: DBM is resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, and slags.
- Thermal shock resistance: DBM has excellent thermal shock resistance, meaning that it can withstand rapid changes in temperature without cracking or deforming.
- Stability: DBM is a very stable material, with minimal shrinkage and expansion at high temperatures.
- Long service life: DBM has a long service life, making it a cost-effective choice for demanding applications.
