  • Type of Medium Duty Brick

    Hi everyone,

    I recently reached out to my local refractory and asked for a Medium Duty Brick that had Alumina - 38%, Silica - 50%, Density - 138 lb/cu/ft and a Service Temperature - 2450 F.

    When the refractory reached back out they mentioned they had a firebrick branded as 'Ovenzz' meant for fire ovens but had the following: Alumina - 43%, Silica - 52%, Density - 142 lb/ft3

    I just wanted to make sure that those specifications would still work for a pizza oven or if I should look elsewhere to find more exact for a medium duty brick?

    Ovenzz is a NSF rated brick promoted by Harbison Walker, supposedly touted as food grade. Should work fine, it may be more expensive than a non branded refractory brick which is typically used WFOs on the forum. You will just need to evaluate cost comparisons and benefit trade offs (if any).

      Ok thanks Russell. Ill see if there are any other options in the area to compare too. Good to know this will work in the event I go this route.
