Utah Refractories: New Silica Brick

January 15, 2001
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."
