Fireclay Brick — Creep In Compression (CIC)

A CIC test was performed on a test piece taken from a fireclay brick (approx. 35% Al2O3);
Test conditions: 0.2 N/mm2; 5 K/min; 25h at 1190°C; static air.
The double graph shows the dynamic heating phase and the time-scaled creep at constant temperature.

RUL/CIC 421 - Apparatus for determining refractoriness under load

The RUL/CIC Apparatus RUL/CIC 421 enables determination of the deformation point under compression and the creep in compression with one instrument without retrofitting. Furnace, load device, differential measuring system, control and software are designed for reliable, automatic long-term operation.
