The Gen-Sil line of silica brick from Utah Refractories now offers
glass manufacturers two upgraded compositions -- Gen-Sil Elite and
Gen-Sil OF. Developed to provide improved service life in oxy-fuel
applications, both grades feature higher density. "Gen-Sil OF was
developed to respond to our customers' requests for a purer and
stronger ASTM type 'A' silica brick," said Ray Worthen,
president. "Gen-Sil OF features a 33% reduction in calcium oxide and
increased cold crushing strength. When used with our insulating
brick, Gen-Sil Lite, this combination provides our customers with an
economical approach to improved crown life."
