Magnesia carbon bricks are made from high melting point basic magnesium oxide, high melting carbon which is difficult to furnish by the slag and a variety of non-oxide additives, making non carbonaceous composite magnesia carbon refractory bricks by combining with carbonaceous binder. As composite refractories, magnesia carbon bricks effectively make the use of the strong slag erosion ability of magnesite clinker as well as high thermal conductivity and low expansibility of carbon to off sets the biggest weakness of poor anti-stripping performance. These Magnesia carbon bricks are having high temperature plasticity. is a kind of important refractory material used in steelmaking converter, steel making electric furnace, steel refining furnace and its ladle as lining (lining). As the erosion resistance, not easy to slag, so the use of magnesia brick can significantly improve the life of steel-making furnace (bag).
Magnesia carbon bricks or MgO-C brick are the carbon composite refractories materials made up of magnesium oxide materials and carbon materials. Magnesium carbon bricks have strong high heat resistance, good thermal shock resistance, strong slag resistance and low creep at high temperature. Additionally, these bricks have the good anti-stripping ability and are widely used in the converter lining, electric arc furnace and slag line of the ladle.. MgO-C (magnesia-carbon) refractory bricks are widely used in steel industry, the primary consumer of refractory linings, such as basic oxygen furnaces, electric arc furnaces, and ladle furnaces.
Covid-19 Impact On Market
COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in the magnesia carbon bricks industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of magnesia carbon bricks market significantly from last few months, as is likely to continue during 2020.
COVID-19 has already affected the sales of equipment and machinery in the first quarter of 2020 and is likely to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery.
Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Equipment and machinery companies can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players would have to modify their investment plans.
Equipment and machinery manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19
Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis
These magnesia carbon bricks market are having its use in good resistance to thermal shock and its increasing demand I industry is driving factor for industry.
Increasing demand for environment friendly brick
The properties of magnesia carbon bricks of good resistance to thermal shock, corrosion, erosion, and oxidation are primarily driving the market growth. Increasing demand from stainless steel pickling plant, phosphoric acid storage tanks, caustic acid handling vessels, and sulphuric acid dilution tanks is again contributing to the market growth. Along with this, the development of environment-friendly new generation MgO-C brick using Nano carbon is expected to create potential demand over the forecast period. As the demand of such bricks that’s manufacturing is not harmful to environment will be having increment in its demand for conservation of nature.
High quality magnesia carbon bricks to ensure the service life and safety
It is the utilization of top notch fused magnesia, high purity flake graphite, metal added substances and other crude materials, phenolic pitch as a folio by high-pressure shaping, around 200 ? heat treatment made of an refractory material. Excellent magnesia carbon blocks to guarantee the administration life and wellbeing, the utilization of low-quality magnesia carbon block stone work heater simple to consume, the event of running steel, spillage of steel, losses and different vicious accidents, so the obtainment must be acceptable Quality off.
Magnesia carbon blocks is anything but difficult to hydrate, so the magnesia carbon block must be kept in the downpour, dampness evidence distribution center. Bundling and transportation should be likewise take measures to prevent dampness, the magnesia carbon blocks once the damp, item quality will decrease, genuine will lead to magnesia carbon block items rejected.
