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. A thermal analyzer was used to perform thermal conductivity testing on 10 commercially available mullite refractories as part of the analysis.
