Practice Test: Question Set - 07

1. Chromite refractories
    (A) Are bonded with lime and clay
    (B) (Free from silica) have better thermal fatigue resistance than silica and magnesite refractories
    (C) Are resistant to basic slag
    (D) All (a), (b) and (c)

2. Addition of grog in fireclay brick during its manufacture is advantageous, because it results in
    (A) Less shrinkage in heating, decreased apparent porosity & increased specific gravity
    (B) High strength & thermal spalling resistance
    (C) Less addition of water to get a workable plasticity & lesser time required for drying the raw refractories and hence increased rate of production
    (D) All (a), (b) and (c)

3. Zircon refractories have
    (A) Low co-efficient of expansion
    (B) High RUL (1600°C) and refractoriness (> 2000°C)
    (C) High spalling resistance
    (D) All (a), (b) and (c)

4. Use of higher percentage of lime for bonding silica bricks, reduces their
    (A) Strength
    (B) Abrasion resistance
    (C) Both (a) & (b)
    (D) Neither (a) nor (b)

5. Cermets are combination of ceramic and metallic materials due to which they have high strength & resistance to high temperature. Cermets are used in the
    (A) Hearth of the blast furnace
    (B) Nuclear reactors, missiles & space crafts
    (C) Insulation of high temperature furnaces
    (D) Roof of electric furnaces

6. Magnesite chrome refractories
    (A) Have better spalling resistance than chrome magnesite refractories
    (B) Have very low thermal co-efficient of expansion
    (C) Are not at all resistant to the corrosive action of iron oxide
    (D) Have very low (50 kg/cm2) cold crushing strength (C.C.S.), and cannot be used in metalcase form

    (C) High crushing strength
    (D) None of these

10. Thermal spalling mainly occurs during __________ of furnaces.
