Refractories - Resistance to Carbon Monoxide - Test Method - BS EN ISO 12676:2003
Refractory products. Determination of resistance to carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide resistance is the resistance of a refractory product to carbon monoxide disintegration when exposed to carbon monoxide under specified conditions of atmosphere and temperature.
Carbon monoxide disintegration is the breakdown of a refractory product caused by the deposition of carbon resulting from the dissociation of carbon monoxide.
The test is intended to be more severe than conditions encountered in service in order to enable probable behaviour of refractory materials to be assessed in a relatively short time.
Test pieces are exposed to a specified carbon monoxide atmosphere at a controlled temperature for a specified time.
