How many pieces are there in a ton of refractory bricks? How to calculate?

(1) Whether the selected refractory bricks are light-weight insulation refractory bricks or heavy-weight high-temperature refractory bricks. Light-weight insulation refractory bricks generally refer to refractory bricks with a density of less than 1300Kg/m³. Lightweight refractory bricks have the characteristics of low density, high porosity, low thermal conductivity, good heat preservation, and certain compressive strength, so they have been widely used in heat treatment equipment. Heavy high-temperature refractory bricks are refractory bricks that have a bulk density greater than 1800Kg/m³ and are suitable for use in direct contact with high temperatures. For the two materials, you must first determine the density of the refractory brick material you choose.

(2) The size and specifications of the refractory bricks to be purchased need to know whether the refractory bricks to be purchased are special-shaped refractory bricks or common types of refractory bricks. Through the model, the size and specifications of the refractory brick can be understood and its volume can be calculated.

(3) Calculate the unit weight of the refractory bricks purchased from the known density and volume of the refractory bricks according to the commonly used formula for calculating unit weight, and the calculation method of unit weight = volume x density, and finally know how many pieces a ton is.
