In Bureau of Mines research on recycling chrome refractory wastes, used refractories from argon-oxygen decarburization and electric steelmaking furnaces were beneficiated, concentrates were reformed into briquets, and modulus of rupture tests were conducted at 1,350 deg. C. The test results indicated that the beneficiated minus 6- mesh material could be used for producing magnesia-chrome refractories.
