Summary

The wear of magnesia-carbon brick in the BOF is influenced by the brick texture, raw material, and the additives to depress carbon oxidation. Recently, the newly developed magnesia-dolomite-carbon brick has attained a satisfactory performance in the linings of molten steel bath area as well as bottom area of the BOF.
