SUBHEARTH

The subhearth zone of most EAF are zoned in one of three ways;

1) somewhat unusual but still used in some shops is the all brick hearth concept. This design uses brick that are horizontal to achieve an elevation for the beginning of the stadium portion of the lining.

2) the second concept used today is that of laying 9 x 11  straights flat on the shell in several layers and then covering with dry vibratible. 

3) the third concept is simply placing dry vibratible directly on the shell

PERECON- a cost effective, burned, regular purity MgO composition that has good hydration resistance.

OXILINE H- a burned , high purity MgO composition that has a balanced lime/silica ratio that imparts excellent refractoriness and excellent strength across a wide temperature range.

OXILINE B- same as OXILINE H ,but tar-impregnated, to enhance composition by adding carbon to existing porosity to provide greater slag resistance as well as enhancing hydration resistance.

STADIUM

The stadium area is designed to provide a safety lining for the dry vibratible.

OXILINE H- a burned , high purity MgO composition that has a balanced lime/silica ratio that imparts excellent refractoriness and excellent strength across a wide temperature range.

OXILINE B- same as OXLINE H ,but tar-impregnated, to enhance composition by adding carbon to existing porosity to provide greater slag resistance as well as enhancing hydration resistance.

LOWER SIDEWALLS

This is the area of the furnace that makes the transition from the stadium to the sidewall. Generally it is an area using a single brick length and is either of OXILINE B or mag-carbon in terms of composition. Slag or metal contact is possible but maintenance should prevent this.

NON-SEVERE to MODERATELY SEVERE APPLICATION 

OXILINE B- same as OXLINE H ,but tar-impregnated, to enhance composition by adding carbon to existing porosity to provide greater slag resistance as well as enhancing hydration resistance.

NULINE R 10 SA or R 20 SA-  the addition of dual metals to provide oxidation resistance if needed.

SEVERE APPLICATIONS

NULINE 10-99- a resin-bonded mag-carbon composition that contains 100% fused very high purity MgO grain as well as dual metal additions.

NULINE 13 DF- a brick similar to Nuline 10-99 but using higher purity raw materials.

Upper Sidewalls Cold & Hot Spots

NON - SEVERE APPLICATIONS
NULINE R10SA- a cost effective resin-bonded, sintered MgO compositions containing 10% graphite respectively and dual metals that provide good all around refractoriness.

NULINE 15 DFP- a composition similar to Nuline 13 DF but enhanced metals to provide greater oxidation and hydration resistance.

NULINE 20 DFP- a composition similar to Nuline 13 DF TL0945  but with higher graphite content to provide greater nonwetting capability to slag attack.

TAPHOLE

Tapholes epoxied & drilled for standard side assemble tapping are available in a range of composotions from mag-chrome to burned magnesite tar-impregnated, to mag- carbon of many types. 
SPOUTS Precast spouts for sidetapping furnaces can be cast in any number of materials with the following representing the typical choices;

NON-SEVERE APPLICATIONS
Uniform 80CLC 102- a 80% alumina , 3200 F degree low cement castable designed to yield minimum porosity and very good strengths.

MODERATELY SEVERE APPLICATIONS
Uniform 85LC - an 85% alumina, 3200 F ultra low cement castable designed for maximum slag and metal resistance.

SEVERE APPLICATIONS
Uniform 98LCXC - a high purity, low cement, 3400 F alumina - castable to provide maximum to molten steel and slags.

DELTAS

NON-SEVERE APPLICATIONS

SLAGLINE

This is the area of the furnace that sees the slag produced in the melting process. Based upon slag volumes and slag control this furnace zone can be no problem or a severe problem.

NON-SEVERE to MODERATELY SEVERE APPLICATION

OXILINE B- same as OXLINE H , but tar-impregnated, to enhance composition by adding carbon to existing porosity to provide greater slag resistance as well as enhancing hydration resistance.

NULINE R10SA or R 20 SA- same as the above mentioned compositions except for the addition of dual metals to provide oxidation resistance if needed.

MODERATELY SEVERE
