AB  - Steatite, as ceramic with composition predominantly resting on magnesium silicate, was produced from economic resources – talc, aluminosilicate clays, and either BaCO3 or feldspar as flux. Titanium dioxide was a doping agent. Four steatite mixtures were mechanically activated in a planetary ball mill for 30, 45 or 60 min, prior to the thermal treatment. Two-step sintering with initial phase set at 1350 °C and holding period conducted at 1250 °C was applied to initiate diffusion and prevent grain growth. Thereby, a high density ceramic material with low-porous submicron structure was acquired. The effects of TiO2 addition on densification, microstructure, and dielectric characteristics of steatites were monitored. The thermal stability of green mixtures was tested by differential thermal and thermogravimetric analyses. Changes in crystallinity and mineral phase composition were observed by the X-ray diffraction technique. Microstructural visualization with spatial arrangements of individual chemical elements on surface of the sintered ceramics was acquired by scanning electron microscopy accompanied with EDS mapping. In order to test the possibility of employment of the obtained steatites in insulation materials, electrical measurements were conducted by recording variations of the dielectric constant and loss tangent as a function of alternations in the mix-design and the mechanical activation period.

AB  - The influence of the sintering method on the mineral phase transformations and development of the crystalline microstructure of steatite ceramics was investigated. The steatite samples were fabricated from talc and bentonite as low-cost raw materials. Feldspar and barium carbonate, as fluxing agents, were altered in the steatite composition. Dilatometric analysis was applied in the monitoring of the dimensional changes and thereby densification of steatite during the traditional sintering (TS) procedure up to 1200°C. Spark plasma sintering (SPS) method was used under the following sintering conditions: 100°C/min heating rate, uniaxial pressure of 50 MPa; sintering temperature 800°C/1 min or 1000°C/2 min. Crystallinity changes and mineral phase transition during sintering were observed by X-ray diffraction technique. Microstructural visualization of the samples and the spatial arrangements of individual chemical elements were achieved via scanning electron microscopy equipped with the EDS mapping. It was found that SPS sintering facilitated all microstructural changes during high temperature treatment and shifted them to lower temperatures. SPS treatment conducted at 1000°C resulted in maximum densification of the steatite powder compacts and the formation stabilized protoenstatite structure.

AB  - The surface modification of commercial TiO2 Hombikat (TiO2) using nanoparticles of fullerene C60 with tetrahydrofuran (THF-nC60), as well as fullerenol C60(OH)24 nanoparticles (FNP) was investigated in this study. Characterization of THF-nC60, FNP, TiO2, TiO2/THF-nC60, and TiO2/FNP was studied by using DES, ELS, TEM, SEM, DRS and BET measurements and their photoactivity has been examined on the mesotrione degradation under simulated sunlight. It was found that FNP in self-assembled nanocomposite TiO2/FNP increased negatively charge, as well as catalytic surface of TiO2. In addition, TiO2/FNP exhibits a shift of band gap energy to lower values compared to TiO2 and TiO2/THF-nC60. BET surface area has not showed significant differences among catalysts. Furthermore, it was found that the highest photoactivity was obtained for TiO2/FNP system. Besides, influence of different concentrations of electron acceptors (H2O2 and KBrO3), as well as scavengers on the kinetics of mesotrione removal in aqueous solution with/without TiO2 and FNP under simulated sunlight was investigated. Namely, addition of mentioned electron acceptors has resulted in higher mesotrione degradation efficiency compared to O2 alone. Besides, in the first period substrate degradation probably takes place via hydroxyl radicals and after 60 min of irradiation the reaction mechanism proceeds mainly via holes. The most efficient system for mesotrione degradation and mineralization were TiO2/7 mM KBrO3 and TiO2/7 mM KBrO3/40 μl FNP, respectively. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

The changes, induced by the alternations of the binders (bentonite, kaolin clay) and fluxing agents (BaCO3, feldspar), were monitored in the temperature range 1000° to 1250 °C in which complete densification and re-crystallization of the investigated structures were accomplished. The critical points in the synthesis of steatite materials were assessed by instrumental analyses. Crystallinity changes and mineral phase transition during sintering were monitored by X-ray diffraction technique. Microstructural visualization of the samples and the spatial arrangements of individual chemical elements were achieved via scanning electron microscopy accompanied with EDS mapping. The thermal stability was observed on the green mixtures using differential thermal and thermo gravimetric analyses. Electrical measurements recorded variations of the dielectric constant (εr) and loss tangent (tan δ) as a function of the sintering temperature. The investigation highlighted critical design points, as well as the optimal combinations of the raw materials for production of the steatite ceramics for advanced electrical engineering applications.

AB  - Due to pozzolanic characteristics, fly ash is commonly used as a cement replacement in construction composites. Addition of natural clays with sorption ability (i.e. zeolite and bentonite) in to the fly ash based construction materials is of both scientific and industrial interest. Namely, due to the application of sorptive clay minerals, it is possible to immobilize toxic heavy metals from the composite structure. The thermal compatibility of fly ash and zeolite, as well as fly ash and bentonite, within the composite was observed during sintering procedure. The starting components were used in 1:1 ratio and they were applied without additional mechanical treatment. The used compaction pressure for the tablets was 2 t•cm-2. The sintering process was conducted at 1000ºC and 1200ºC for two hours in the air atmosphere. The mineralogical phase composition of the non-treated and sintered samples was analyzed using X-ray diffraction method. Scanning electron microscopy was applied in the analysis of the microstructure of starting and sintered samples. The thermal behavior was observed via DTA method. The influence of temperature on the properties of fly ash-zeolite and fly ash-bentonite composites was investigated

AB  - The properties of seven montmorillonite-rich bentonites of different geological origin were investigated prior and subsequent to mechano-chemical processing in an ultra-centrifugal mill. The objective of the experiment was altering the bentonite types and activation parameters in order to determine the optimal milling conditions that produce material which is physico-mechanically and microstructurally applicable as a binder replacement and sorbent in the construction composites. The efficiency of bentonite activation was assessed by chemometrics and Artificial neural networks mathematical modeling. Principal component analysis and analysis of variance were used in the observation of the influence of input variables (bentonite chemical composition) and process parameters (milling duration, rotor velocity) on the product characteristics: density, specific surface area, grain size and distribution, cation exchange capacity, melting point, compressive strength, shrinkage and porosity. When the ANN models for the observed responses, related to predicted bentonite characteristics and quality, were compared to experimental results, they correctly predicted the responses. The processed data also adequately fitted to the regression second order polynomial models. The SOP models, which showed r2 values from 0.357 to 0.948, and were able to predict the observed responses in a wide range of processing parameters, while ANN models performed high prediction accuracy (0.776–0.901) and can be considered as precise for response variables prediction. The combination of the conducted mathematical analyses showed that that increase/decrease in output values was stabilized after 30 min of activation. Mathematically attained interpretations were correlated with the results of the instrumental analyses (XRD, DTA/TG, SEM) to confirm the adoption of B6 bentonite as a preferable type and 30 min as an optimal milling time for acquiring quality of clay powder that will be used in structural and thermal applications.

AB  - The impact of the mechanical processing parameters on the alumina grain-size distribution affiliated characteristics and on the γ to α phase transformation rate was investigated. The moderation in the alumina samples behavior has been correlated to the granulometric and mineralogical changes induced by activation via an ultra-centrifugal mill. The assessment of the activation process variables influence on the final quality of the product parameters was conveyed in order to optimize the mechanical treatment of the alumina, which otherwise could be regarded as either energetically or economically unsustainable procedure. The Response Surface Method, Standard Score Analysis and Principal Component Analysis were applied as means of the mechanical activation optimization. The r 2 values obtained by developed models were in range from 0.816 to 0.988. The established mathematical models were able to precisely predict the quality parameters in a broad range of processing parameters. The Standard Score Analysis emphasized that the optimal output sample was obtained using a sieve mesh of 120μm set of processing parameters (SS=0.96). Diverse comparison analyses disclosed that the optimal set of activation process parameters could reduce the negative effect of γ-alumina samples immanent properties on the final score, and furthermore to enhance the rate of γ to α transition which would improve energetic and economic sustainability of the alumina phase transformation procedure. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.

AB  - The effect of the application of pelletized fly ash based aggregates obtained through different processing techniques on the behavior of lightweight concretes was analyzed. Experimental program implied production of four lightweight artificial aggregates - cold bonded and sintered pellets based on either mechanically activated or non-activated low-calcium fly ash and water glass. The lightweight concrete behavior was compared to that of normal-weight concrete through compressive strength, flexural strength, porosity, shrinkage, and modulus of elasticity investigation. Differences in concretes characteristics were discussed with SEM imagining support. The statistical analysis of lightweight aggregate and ash properties contribution on concrete performances was realized by analysis variance model (ANOVA). Optimal production combination that maximizes lightweight concrete performance was determined by employing response surface methodology. An increase in concrete strength induced by the increase in ash fineness was noticed. Mechanical activation also had effect on the pellets sintering period and sintering temperature reduction. The 28- and 56-day lightweight concrete specimens exhibited properties that met the requirements for normal-weight concretes. Finally, the ideal combinations of ash pellets production parameters and properties that gave the lightweight concrete with behavior matching to that of standard concrete were established. The production capability of lightweight concrete with advanced performances based on artificial aggregate approves the principle of waste material reusing and enables cleaner and economically sustainable concrete manufacturing procedure. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.

AB  - The surface topography analysis via fractals as a means of explanation of composite materials mechanical and microstructural characteristics has hardly been reported so far. This study proposes a method of fractal analysis and its application to refractory bauxite concrete surface tribological investigation. Fractal dimension, profilegrams and fast Fourier transform method are introduced and supported by the adequate software for analysing contours and surface roughness, depending on the observation scale and also numerically depending on horizontal lines intercepted by the investigated profile. Also, the Richardson method and Kaye modification are applied to distinguish textured and structured aspect of grain contour geometry. Microstructural investigation was carried out using a scanning electron microscope. Using the fractals of the grains contact surfaces, a reconstruction of microstructure configuration, as grains shapes or inter-granular contacts, has been performed. Obtained results indicated that fractal analyses of contact surfaces of different shapes were very important for the prognosis of the concrete behaviour. The novel approach to the investigation of refractory concrete properties was successfully conducted, as a result introducing fractal identification as a means of composite materials performances evaluation. © 2015 International Institute for the Science of Sintering (IISS).

AB  - The effects that the fly ash addition has on the behavior of thermally resistant corundum concrete were discussed. Experimental program implied production of two refractory composites: "referent" concrete from 20 % of high-aluminate cement and 80 % of corundum aggregate, "recycled" concrete from 10 % of high-aluminate cement, 20 % of lignite coal ash, and 70 % of corundum aggregate. The fly ash was mechanically activated by a vibratory disk mill. In the concrete matrix, the ash had a role of cement partial replacement and microfiller. The mechanical and thermal properties of the concretes were studied at temperatures ranging from ambient to 1,400 °C as adopted maximum. Mechanisms of thermally induced processes were observed by differential thermal analysis at 10, 20, and 30 °C min-1 heating rates. Referent and recycled concretes showed differences in calculated activation energies. The variations in refractory concretes performances were discussed with support of scanning electron microscope imagining and X-ray diffraction results. The recycled ash concrete exhibited properties that met the requirements for the castables, which proves it suitable for use in severe conditions at high temperature and highlights the reusing principle and possibility of cleaner and economically sustainable production. © 2014 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.

AB  - In this study, the feasibility of using fly ash to manufacture high-temperature mortars was investigated. The investigation was set to define preliminary characteristics of new types of mortars based on ordinary and/or refractory cement with fly ash addition, and to establish mutual correlation between thermally induced changes of mineral phases, microstructure, and final performances of the mortars. New mortars, made up of 21% cement (PC-CEM I 42.5R/HAC-Secar 70/71), 70% river sand, and 9% fly ash, were chemically, physically, and mechanically characterized to determine possibilities of fly ash re-utilization for high-temperature purposes. The fly ash samples, which originated from four different power plants, were mechanically activated. Mortars were heat-treated up to 1300°C in a laboratory tunnel furnace with retention time 2 h. Thermal stability of crystalline phases were studied by differential thermal analysis (DTA); thermally induced changes in mineral phase composition were analyzed by XRD; and microstructure were investigated by scanning electron microscopy. Correlated results of DTA, XRD, and SEM analyses indicated initiation of sintering processes at approximately 1300°C and formation of thermally stable minerals (rankinite, gehlenite, anorthite, cristobalite). The investigation highlights a sustainable approach of using fly ash in developing ecofriendly mortars for high-temperature application. © 2013 The American Ceramic Society.

AB  - The effect of vibratory mill induced mechanical activation on the change of the particle size, crystallinity and the phase transformations of the minerals present in the activated material, was studied with the purpose of decreasing of the sintering temperature of talc (Mg3Si4O10(OH)2) as raw material which is the basic component of the steatite ceramics. The aims of the conducted investigation were, also, increasing of the reactivity of the comminuted raw material and establishing of the optimal activation period. The properties of the activated talc induced by mechanical force were expressed in form of the grain inertia change which was measured by means of automatic grain counter. Mechanically activated grains are the most convenient mineral form for physical concentration since the energy change of the mill-material system is recorded on them. The effect of dry grinding on the structure, particle size and shape of talc was studied by means of XRD, DTA and SEM/EDS methods. Activation of talc produced an increase of the starting surface area value progressively from 4.5 m2/g up to a maximum of 108.5 m2/g achieved at 30 min. A subsequent decrease of rate of surface area change and the rate of size reduction were observed following the prolonged grinding. Talc activated in vibratory mill for optimal 30 min showed properties which positively influence the decrease of sintering temperature and the increase of the sintering rate of steatite ceramics.

AB  - This paper describes a study of 11 selected samples of loess soil from Serbia, by using differential scanning calorimetry, simultaneously with thermogravimetry and its differential calculation, known as simultaneous thermal analysis (STA). This survey is supplemented by chemical and mineralogical analysis, particle size distribution, and plasticity and drying susceptibility tests. Correlation analysis of major oxides content and certain technological test results were used for better understanding of the raw material composition and product physical properties. The results indicate that the samples were rich in carbonates, with the highest content of alevrite fraction and variable content of clay-sized particles. Mineralogical analysis confirms significant correlations between major oxides content and reveals that the most common non-clay mineral present is quartz, followed by calcite, dolomite and sodium feldspar. Major clay minerals include illite, chlorite, smectite and, in some cases, low quantities of kaolinite. Although STA method is well-known, this is the first time that it was used for discussion about its practical aspect, for characterization of the loess deposits, in terms of exploitation in brick industry.

AB  - A growing demand for refractory castables with advanced properties has given rise to a continuous technological evolution and highlighted the necessity for secondary raw materials reapplication even in refractory industry. For the experiment, refractory shotcretes with the same matrix composition were prepared from 30 wt% of high aluminate cement, 40 wt% of bauxite aggregate and 30 wt% of chamotte filler. The request for obtaining a low-cement castable is fulfilled by application of mechanically activated coal ash as microfiller in one of the bauxite shotcretes. The fly ash was activated by means of vibratory disc mill and ultra-centrifugal mill, and results were compared. The shotcrete samples were dried at 110 °C during 24 h to create specimens for investigation of mechanical and thermal properties. The properties have been studied at temperatures ranging from room temperature to adopted maximal temperature 1400 °C. At maximal 1400 °C, the bauxite shotcretes were mainly composed of anorthite, corundum, mullite and cristobalite. Mechanisms of hydration and sintering were investigated by means of differential thermal analysis (DTA) at three different heating rates. DTA measurements showed different activation energies for ordinary bauxite shotcrete and shotcrete with microfiller. The evolution of the refractory shotcretes properties was investigated and correlated with microstructural changes induced by temperature and microfiller addition. The combination of advantages in investigated refractory shotcretes makes them suitable for use in severe conditions at high temperature applications especially in refractory industries.

AB  - In this study, the feasibility of alumina phase transition enhancement by mechanical activation was conducted. It was showed that the milling environment plays an important role on the physical, chemical and thermal behavior of the alumina powder utilized as refractory component material. The aim of the investigation was to increase the reactivity of the starting γ-Al2O3 by mechanical treatment in two types of high-energy activators – vibratory disc mill and vibratory ball mill. In continuation, the decrease of the subsequent sintering temperature as well as the treatment duration would be induced by making the transition into final thermo-stable α-Al2O3 modification easier and faster. Full factorial experiment was conducted and the results were analyzed by the proposed mathematical model in order to understand the effects of the activation process variables on the amount and physical characteristics of the synthesized (activated and subsequently thermally treated) product and to establish the optimal activation period. As the result of the analysis, operation parameters of the activator and activation period were found to be the most important factors. The initial γ-Al2O3 and synthesized α-Al2O3 were thoroughly analyzed by DTA, XRD, IR and SEM methods. Thermal behavior of γ and α-modification were studied by differential thermal analysis conducted in the same environment, under same heating rates. X-ray diffraction analysis gave reliable identification of the crystal phases and changes in crystallinity of treated alumina. Based on XRD peak intensity measurements, the γ-Al2O3 almost completely passed (95%) into α-Al2O3 after 180 min of activation in vibratory ball mill and subsequent thermal treatment (2 h/1200 °C). SEM microphotographs with accompanying image analysis PC program highlighted changes in size and shape of particles of initial and synthesized Al2O3. Synthesized Al2O3 exquisite thermal behavior characteristic for refractory compounds, demonstrated that it is possible to obtain α-alumina at lower transformation temperatures in shorter time intervals by applying mechanical activation.

Thermal behavior of γ and α-modification were studied by differential thermal analysis conducted in the same environment, under same heating rates. X-ray diffraction analysis gave reliable identification of the crystal phases and changes in crystallinity of treated alumina. Based on XRD peak intensity measurements, the γ-Al2O3 almost completely passed (95%) into α-Al2O3 after 180 min of activation in vibratory ball mill and subsequent thermal treatment (2 h/1200 °C). SEM microphotographs with accompanying image analysis PC program highlighted changes in size and shape of particles of initial and synthesized Al2O3. Synthesized Al2O3 exquisite thermal behavior characteristic for refractory compounds, demonstrated that it is possible to obtain α-alumina at lower transformation temperatures in shorter time intervals by applying mechanical activation.",

AB  - Loess clays are commonly used to produce bricks. Heavy clays, taken at location near Zrenjanin, Serbia, are used as a representative raw material in this study. The sample, containing about 28% of clay sized particles, is enriched using two more plastic heavy clays from neighboring locations. Chemical and mineralogical content of clays is determined, as well as particle size distribution. Optimization of the processing parameters during the bricks production, i. e. temperature (900–1100 °C), and concentration of 2 clays combined addition (both in the range of 0–10%), is done based on the following independent parameters: compressive strength (CS), water absorption (WA), firing shrinkage (FS), weight loss during firing (WLF) and apparent density expressed as volume mass of cubes (VMC). Developed models showed r2 values in the range of 0.822–0.998, and they were able to accurately predict CS, WA, FS, WLF and VMC in a wide range of processing parameters. The optimum conditions are determined by the response surface method (RSM), coupled with the fuzzy synthetic evaluation (FSE) algorithm, using membership trapezoidal function, with defined optimal interval values, depending on a final usage of the raw material in heavy clay brick industry.

AB  - Concretes whose structure and final properties are shaped during thermal pre-treatment or during life-service at elevated temperatures can be applied as construction material for thermal insulation and/or refractory linings in high-temperatureoperating plants. Refractory concretes designed with waste raw materials show satisfying performances in comparison with standard concretes. Sintering initiates microstructural changes within concrete. Concrete microstructure further develops with increasing temperature. Change progression can be monitored by means of destructive and non-destructive tests: either by investigating change of compressive strength or apparent porosity of concrete samples. Destructive tests, in this study, were applied in compressive strength investigation, while non-destructive tests were performed for results comparison. Experiment has been conducted on corundum (standard) concrete and recycled bauxite (experimental) concrete. Samples underwent thermal treatment from 110 to 1500°C. Macroperformance of the final refractory concrete was correlated to the microstructural change detected by means of XRD and SEM analysis. Creep testing was conducted to prove sintering process. Results showed that recycled concrete has equal if not better properties in comparison with standard refractory concrete and can be used as thermoinsulation or refractory material. The results presented in this paper contribute to the idea of including other testing methods (i.e. nondestructive methods) in investigation of microstructural changes and sintering process of refractory concrete. At the same time results of this investigation highlight advantages of application of secondary raw materials in design of refractory materials. Although recycled aggregate concrete showed lower compressive strength and higher porosity than commercial concrete it should be noted that both porosity and compressive strength are within satisfying value range for high-temperature application, i.e. these concretes will not be used as structural materials but as thermal insulation linings. In such application refractoriness is the property which is more important than strength. Considering the fact that compressive strength is above 50 MPa (and above 20 MPa at 1500°c) these concretes should be able to withstand load induced by other constructive parts of furnace and slag. Refractoriness test showed that bauxite-based recycled concrete is highly resistible on increasing temperatures and creep test showed initiation of sintering process. Corundum concrete can be used for temperature above 1500°c. Due to the satisfying performances it is concluded that recycled concrete can be equally used as standard concrete. Even though it has slightly lower properties, accent should be on the financial and ecological benefit found in using of recycled material and savings of energy and natural resources.

AB  - Amount of fly ash which is and yet to be generated in the coming years highlights the necessity of developing new methods of the recycling where this waste can be reused in significant quantity. A new possibility for fly ash utilization is in high-temperature application (thermal insulators or/and refractory material products). As such, fly ash has to adequately answer the mechanical and thermal stability criteria. One of the ways of achieving it is by applying mechanical activation procedure on fly ash. In present study, fly ashes from two different power plants were mechanically activated in a planetary ball mill. Mechanically treated fly ashes were cemented with two different binders: standard Portland cement and high-aluminates cement. Physico-chemical analysis and investigation of mineralogical components of composites are emphasized, due to the changes occurred in fly ash during mechanical activation and sintering of composites. Macro-performance of the composites was correlated to the microstructure of fly ash studied by means of XRD and SEM analysis. Thermal stability of crystalline phases was investigated with DTA. Highlight was placed on determination of relationship between mechanically activated fly ash and obtained composites microstructure on one side and behavior of sintered composites on the other side.
