    Abstract:

    SiO2 is used in various smelting reactors as a major constituent of refractories and as a chemical flux. Its mechanical properties are affected by numerous impurities such as Na2O, K2O, MgO, CaO, Fe2O3 and Al2O3. As part of a wider project, this work studies the effect of various network modifiers in SiO2 linear and volumetric expansion. The experiments were carried out using solid cylindrical pressed samples of various mineralogical compositions but identical in size, weight, volume and area. These samples were held inside an electric furnace in laboratory at different temperature within the 1200C-1260C range interval keeping the time constant for all heats. After the tests the linear expansion was quantified using the variation of the diameter of the circular surface of the cylindrical sample and volumetric expansion was quantified using the difference of total volume of the cylindrical samples after heating. The results were analyzed, a model was created and various conclusions on the individual effect of each impurity as well as various ratios between them and SiO2 were drawn.
