BSA 96 - Applications
Almatis BSA 96 provides an alternative to other high alumina aggregates, fused, natural, and sintered in various applications like Iron and steel industry, Aluminum industry, Industrial furnace industry, Chemical and Petrochemicals industry.
Benefits of Almatis BSA 96
BSA 96 is a highly refractory dense aggregate with an Al2O3 content greater than 96 %. The major impurities are SiO2 and TiO2 and smaller amounts of Na2O and MgO. Because BSA 96 is produced by the sinter process all size fractions have the same chemical composition. Even the fine milled BSA 96 -90 µm has the same chemical composition as the coarser fractions. BSA 96 does not contain carbides or metallic components that could do harm to sensitive bonding systems or negatively influence the refractory performance of bricks and the appearance of fired pieces by melted spots or blisters on the surface. BSA 96 shows the typical corundum crystals with entrapped porosity that are well known for Tabular alumina. This explains the reduced bulk density of this sintered aggregate when compared to a fused aggregate such as brown fused alumina.
