What is an acid proof brick?

by Barkha Pahuja SEO/Writer

An acid-proof brick is produced from a masonry brick, which is famous for its thermal durability and chemical resistance. Manufacturers take a great attention in preparing acid resistant bricks and that is why they choose high silica shale. Then they fire it in very high temperatures, which are much higher than the temperature used for making the other conventional bricks. To create such high temperatures in a single day is not easy. So the making process of an acid proof brick can take up to seven days! In a single line, the acid resistant bricks are made with high compressive strength.

Types of acid proof bricks

Acid bricks can be of various types. Among them, red shale is the most convenient type. Other types include silica brick, fireclay, and carbon brick. Now, the fireclay acid bricks are two types, i.e. Class I & II.

All these kinds of bricks have a brilliant abrasion and chemical resistance, which get combined into a little porosity and great strength.

Advantages of acid proof bricks

  1. They contain high flexural strength. This is why the acid proof bricks are an ideal choice for acid proof flooring in the industrial buildings.

  2. They are cost effective, as they contain approximately no maintenance cost at all.

  3. They provide long lasting service life. This helps them to offer economical solutions as well.

  4. They are abrasion resistant. The manufacturers make the acid bricks so strong that they become very tough to fight any damages about to causethem.

  5. They provide resistance to almost every mineral acid (except hydrofluoric acids).

  6. They offer high-temperature resistance.

Characteristics of acid proof bricks

  • Chemical resistant

  • Mechanical resistant

  • Thermal resistant

The manufacturers prepare the acid proof bricks with multiple dimensions and in various forms. The particular type of acid resistant bricks- carbon, ceramic or graphite, are chosen depending upon their application areas.

Applications of acid proof bricks

  • In generating power

  • In manufacturing cement

  • Steel plants

  • In the aluminum factory

  • Pulp and paper industry

  • Sulfuric acid plants

  • Food industry

Acid proof bricks exporters only export the supreme quality bricks to avoid damage to the society. They purchase bricks those are capable of bearing mechanical and thermal loads and which offer corrosion protection. The exporters buy only the bricks having a proper thickness to provide maximum compressive strength and lowest water absorption qualities.

In a nutshell, manufacturers of acid proof bricks provide the most efficient bricks at the best market price to serve various industries.
