Summary

NaOH is produced by the evaporation of sodium from the surface of alkali glass melts. Its reaction with combustion products and water vapor attacks crown refractories. When concentrations of these corrodants are elevated in oxy-fuel-fired furnaces, silica refractories are limited. This work reviews current refractory practice to combat NaOH vapor corrosion and methods to monitor the combustion space chemistry. Also discussed is an oxy-fuel glass melter simulator at the University of Missouri currently used for the development of new crown materials and combustion space sampling and analysis methods.
