Castable Refractory is a sort of amorphous high temperature unshaped refractory material, dry refractory mix. It is also called refractory castable, which is a kind of mixture of granular and powdery material made of a certain amount of binder with refractory materials, and has a high fluidity. Castables are amorphous refractory formed by casting, They are flexible and adaptable for the construction or repair of the industrial kiln body. This Refractory material is commonly used in reheating furnace lining and some of high quality are even used in smelting furnace, like aluminate cement, high alumina cement and phosphate cement.

What Is Castable Refractory
Castable is a kind of granular and powdery material made form refractory material with a certain amount of binder. As an amorphous refractory, castable has high fluidity and forms by pouring or spreading. The difference with other amorphous refractories is that the refractory castable has a certain setting and hardening time after construction. After finished casting, castable material needs to be removed after a certain period of maintenance, then castable material can be put into drying after a proper time of natural maintenance.
The castable refractories consist of refractory aggregate, binding material and admixture and castable comes into being by mixing with water or liquid binder.
As for the different chemical properties and composition of the aggregate, there are castables of clay, high alumina, silicon, magnesia, magnesia zirconia, magnesia chrome, silicon carbide,etc.
Based to the main crystalline phase of aggregate, the castable material can be divided into castable containing mullite, corundum, zirconium corundum, zirconium mullite, and so on.
- Simple preparation process, short production cycle and high labor productivity.
- Castable has strong flexibility and is not limited by the shape of industrial kin structure. It can be made into any shape you want.
- Good integrity, air tightness and thermal resistance which could reduce the heat loss of the industrial furnace and save the energy as well.
- Castable material makes the mechanized construction easy, saving labor and time.
- For the damaged industrial furnace lining, easy to repair.
Castable Types & Classification
According to Working Performance
- Vibration castable refractory: this castable requires mechanical vibration to generate the flow and fill the model.
- Self-flow castable refractory: the refractory comes into being by self gravity and potential energy difference. This refractory castable can automatically fill the model and spread the surface.
- Pump pouring castable refractory: the material is pumped into the model with slurry pump, and can also automatically fill the model.
According to Volume Density of Aggregate
- Dense castable refractory: volume density is greater than 2g/cm³
- Medium weight castable refractory: volume density is between 1-2g/cm³
- Lowweight castable refractory: volume density is between 0.4-1.0g/cm³
According to Chemical Properties
- Acid Resistant Refractory Castable
Acid castable products are acid resistant castables and phosphoric acid castables, mainly used in resistance to acid gas erosion, refractory castables are very critical to the construction environment. When we use acid resistant castables, the construction temperature must be between 5 degrees Celsius and 30 degrees Fahrenheit, if the temperature is 5 Celsius Degree, then we should store the dry materials in the room with suitable temperature. In the construction, we can keep the temperature of the acid resistant castable at ten degrees Celsius by heating the heating water or adding a proper amount of coagulant to the fire-resistant material technicians.
- Alkali Proof Refractory Castable
The alkali proof refractory castable is the granular and powdery material made from the refractory aggregate of Magnesium Oxide (MgO) as the main raw material. The castable material added with binder and admixture can be divided into magnesia castable, alumina magnesia castable, magnesia chrome castable, magnesia silicon castable, spinel castable and so on.

Applications of Castable Refractory
Castable Refractory materials are used as insulation layers in the kiln, thermal equipment, chimney and flue lining of metallurgical, mechanical, petrochemical, electric and building. However, with the improvement of the quality of the refractory material and the improvement of refractory technology, in many occasions, castables are directly used as the refractory lining of atmosphere furnace.
