Zinc is a component of many input materials used in various pyrometallurgical processes, for example
primary lead and zinc production from Pb/Zn ores and recycling processes dealing with zinccontaining
residues (e.g., copper recycling, WAELZ process). Hence, zinc and its compounds are
present in the respective metallurgical vessels (i.e., in gas, metal and/or slag phase) and interact
with the refractory lining. In the present work the zinc attack on the refractories out of various primary
and secondary furnaces is briefly introduced and discussed. At the prevailing processing temperatures
in the metallurgical vessels, zinc oxide is highly corrosive for the brick components. The
knowledge of the wear behavior is based not only on a detailed chemical and mineralogical characterization
carried out on provided post mortem samples, but also on FactSage calculations. This
together with results obtained by practical tests in the RHI pilot plant represents an important prerequisite
for product development and brick selection for the individual customer application.
