Poster #5: MITCHELL CHILD – Castable, Porous Insulation for Oxygen Generation Applications

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Raymond Cutler

Over the last few months we have researched castable ceramic insulation for oxygen generation applications. This involved researching current state of the art of materials used in the industry and this kind of application. The material we needed to create or improve upon needed to be lightweight, strong, and have good insulation for temperatures up to 1200 degrees C. We decided to try and improve the properties of RESCOR-740 and began by characterizing the current material and then adjusting.
