Borate LOI - BLOI
This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com. Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.
The LOI on borate materials is difficult to measure because they have mechanical and crystal water and the temperature to heat samples to to remove only the former is difficult to assess.
LOI - LOI (C)
This calculates the LOI as follows:
DWT - Dry Weight (V)
This is the weight of the powder. The powder should be from a sample that has been collected from at least 10 bags throughout the shipment.
FWT - Fired Weight (V)
The weight of the powder fired to cone 010.
