The NETL-sponsored research by WVU used advanced manufacturing techniques to develop a smart refractory brick
that featured embedded sensors capable of measuring pressure and temperature up to 1,500 Celsius.
You could be in normal operation and have a refractory brick
break creating a hot spot in less than a minute."

Similarly, T-Seg Signature15 can be used to slice through cured concrete, reinforced concrete, concrete pipe, rebar and refractory brick
. Apart from these, there are other more sophisticated cutters as well, such as asphalt saw blades that can cut between sixteen to twenty thousand inch feet.

It is widely used in the steel industry as a refractory brick
often impregnated with carbon (tar, pitch, graphite) to give optimum properties for corrosion resistance in environments of basic slags, particularly in furnaces or slag lines of treatment ladles.
In addition to its more traditional role in concrete demolition, a breaker (or hydraulic hammer) can also be used in the demolition of other hard material, like refractory brick
, says Gary Hesseltine, vice president of marketing for Tramac Corp., Parsippany, N.J.

A blast furnace chemically reduces and converts iron oxides into liquid iron called "hot metal." The blast furnace is a huge steel stack lined with refractory brick
, where iron ore, coke, and limestone are dumped into the top, and preheated air is blown into the bottom.
There is also the T-Seg Signature 15, which is known to cut through reinforced concrete, cured concrete, concrete pipes, refractory brick
, and rebar.
