Coke ovens convert coal into coke, a purer form of carbon. This process is completed within refractory lined ovens to achieve the necessary temperatures of 2000ºF - 2450ºF. It heats the coal but not combusting it while removing all volatile matter. The process takes many hours to achieve the proper quality of coke.
This usually results in about a 30% decrease in tonnage from the coal charged to coke produced. The refractory material is then quenched with water as soon as possible. This stops the burning of the coke and loss of product. Next, it transfers to the crushing and screening station where it's made into its final form. This form is then utilized as fuel for blast furnaces.
Resco provides a large variety of high-quality refractories including silica bricks. Silica refractories are designed to withstand high temperatures required by operating temperatures. Your specialist will ensure the refractory material sustain excellent mechanical strength and excellent volumetric stability.
