Quartz Powder is basically mixture created by mixing of powder & granules prepared from crushing of quartz stone and Boric Acid. Quartz Powder (Ramming mass) is characterized by thermal stability, corrosion resistance and wears resistance. The ramming masses are generally used in Induction furnace of iron and steel industry as lining for the induction furnace. Proper checks are also exercised on magnetic process to assure iron free material and to assure proper composition of granules according to furnace capacity.
Uses of Quartz Powder (Ramming mass) : Ramming mass is used as Furnace refractory lining material for steel industries. Ramming mass is a key component which is used as insulation layer and is a mandatory consumable for Induction Melting Furnace. Quality of Ramming mass is directly related to the heating performance of the furnaces. Better quality of lining results in the smooth working of furnaces, optimum output and better metallurgical control.
