AUREX® 95 P Brick Is a Leading Choice for Commercial Gasifiers.

In 2009 the US Department of Energy (DOE) published ratings for the AUREX® 95 P, giving it an “‘excellent’ or ‘exceptional’ in terms of increasing service life in high-wear areas of the gasifier, and in lowering operational costs.” In that same article, the DOE went on to say, “The AUREX® 95 P represents the most significant improvement in gasifier refractories in over 25 years” [http://energy.gov/fe/articles/improved-lining-material-gasifiers-could-lead-wider].
