Hi All,

Post a question to CVCrash. He's in LV and just finished his oven. I hope he doesn't mind my offering his help.

Cheers,

" but the brick experts i call here have never heard of firebrick -- "

Might be a case of local terminology. They may have it by refer to it by a different common name (be glad you are not talking Australian). Try asking for "wood stove brick" or "fireplace brick".

Found a place near me that has high duty firebrick: 40-43 alumina and 130-140 density, they want 3.25 a brick. I think I'm getting it hard here but not sure.

After reviewing the numbers it seems this is a med duty firebrick even though he considered it high duty, should it be concerned? Looking to do the entire WFO in fire brick

I heard this isn't sufficient alumina, density and temperature for an oven and these bricks should be avoided

You heard wrong, especially for the floor, the lower conductivity prevents burning of the crust.

So you believe the low duty firebrick is going to be just fine. Would hate to put in all this work just to find out it's not

Conservatively, 95% of all ovens built using fire brick are built with low-duty firebrick. High duty firebrick are used in rolling kilns (cement plant) for example, while medium duty are used in commercial boilers and furnaces, etc.

edit- This is the real criteria for high-medium-low firebrick:

High: Highly abrasive and extreme heat.
Medium: Ablative and abrasive applications at high heat.
Low: Mildly abrasive at medium to high heat.
