) and isknown for its acidic properties. Here are some key points about acidic rammingmass:

Compositionand Characteristics:

Main Component: The primary component of acidic ramming mass is silica (quartz).

  • Acidity: It is called "acidic" because silica is an acidic oxide.
  • Refractory Properties: It has high refractoriness, meaning it can withstand high temperatures without melting or breaking down.
  • Thermal Stability: It provides good thermal stability and resistance to thermal shock.

Uses andApplications:

  • It is mainly used in coreless induction furnaces for melting iron and steel. The ramming mass forms the inner lining of the furnace.
  • Maintenance: It is used for patching and repairing the furnace lining, ensuring a consistent and effective barrier between the molten metal and the furnace walls.


  • Compared to other refractory materials, acidic ramming mass is often more cost-effective.
  • Efficiency: It enhances the efficiency of the furnace by providing good insulation and maintaining high thermal stability.
  • Longevity: Proper application and maintenance of the ramming mass can prolong the life of the furnace lining.


  • Chemical Compatibility: Acidic ramming mass should be used where it is chemically compatible with the materials being processed. It is not suitable for furnaces melting basic (alkaline) materials, as it can react with them and degrade.
  • Handling: Proper handling and storage are necessary to prevent contamination and moisture absorption, which can affect the performance of the ramming mass.

In summary, acidic ramming mass is an essentialmaterial in the steel and foundry industries, providing a durable and efficientlining for induction furnaces. Its proper use and maintenance are crucial forthe optimal performance of these high-temperature furnaces.
