Paper Title:
Exploitation of Ceramic Wastes by Recycling in Alumina-Mullite Refractories
  Abstract

Alumina-mullite (AM) refractories are widely used as liners in gas turbines for power production, because of their peculiar properties, appropriate for the thermal insulation of combustion chambers, characterized by turbine inlet temperature around 1400 °C. The typical tiles are made with a mixture of alumina and mullite with different granulometries, including a coarse fraction. In this work the feasibility of recycling of ceramic wastes, which come from other industrial processes, into AM refractories was assessed. The effects of their addition on phase composition, microstructure and thermomechanical properties of AM refractories were investigated. MOR and Young’s modulus were determined at room temperature and up to 1500 °C by four point flexural tests; thermal shock resistance was evaluated by MOR measurements after quenching tests. The comparison with a typical AM refractory used as liners shows that thermomechanical properties and thermal shock resistance were not significantly compromised by ceramic waste additions up to 20%, and, on the contrary, were improved.
