Energy requirement for firing porcelain

Abstract


Results from studies on the ternary system Ribaué kaolin–Carapira feldspar– Marracuene quartz sands were used to test a procedure that we developed for calculation of the energy requirement for firing porcelain. Results obtained vary between 1300 and 1800 kJ/kg porcelain. These results differ largely from the ones obtained using Hennicke’s procedure.

 

KEY WORDS: Porcelain, Energy requirement for firing porcelain, Kaolin---feldspar---quartz sands
