Abstract

'l"he chemical composition of some clay deposits from Shuwari; Pulka and Ngala in Bomo State were studied for refractory production. This is to indicate t~e.lr classification as refractory . material and their places of use in.~ndustrial set up. The .result sh9wed that. the Shuyvarl clay has 36% and 47% of _alumina and silica respectively. this. placed th~~c~ay in the group of siliceous fire.:eiay n:fractory. The Pulka clay 'has 41.3% and s 1.00/o ofaf~mina and silica respectively . . -r:tais placed the clay under the med~um duty and low-melting sefi·acid fire clay; while Naaln .. ebiy has JS.OOA and 46.8% of aluPlina and· silica· respe~tively. H9wever; this was placed under the group of low-duty and low-melting fire clay refractory duel to high _lime (Ca9 + MsO) counted. The possible areas of applications of the studied day ht~ also been indicatef.fin this pape
