DENSE FIREBRICKS

Dense firebricks are typically used as linings for kilns, furnaces and boilers because they possess mechanical strength and can be subjected to extreme thermal cycling and thermal shock. Dense fire bricks also have a high thermal mass which ensures they retain heat and provide excellent energy efficiency.

Fire bricks are made by firing a clay based composition until partly vitrified and for specialist applications can also be produced with a glazed finish. Normally fire bricks contain 40-50% alumina depending on the maximum operating temperatures.

We stock a range of profiles and sizes ranging from standard 26 grade bricks to 90% alumina grades which are used in extremely aggressive thermal environments.
