Abstract: The purpose of this study was to provide a comprehensive overview of compressive creep of mullite refractories, which are a potential replacement for more traditional silica refractories in harsh oxy-fuel environments. Tests performed included corrosion resistance, microstructure analysis, dimensional stability, phase content, and thermal properties. The Hot Disk TPS was used to perform thermal conductivity testing on 10 commercially available mullite refractories as part of the analysis.
