Calcium Aluminate dissolution in Calcium Chloride

  1. Jun 14, 2008 #1
    To whom it may concern,

    I have been unable to find data on the dissolution rate of calcium aluminate in a melt of calcium chloride at 700 degrees Celsius. The problem has been that I am aiming towards constructing a electrical furnace to melt calcium chloride with calcium metal and run electrolysis experiments in a calcium aluminate refractory, however, if the calcium chloride were to interact with the refractory significantly, then of course the whole apparatus would fail. In addition, if anyone has any input on other refractory materials suitable for a calcium chloride melt in reducing conditions, I would be much appreciative.

    Thank you for your time.

    Best regards,
