An extensive deposit of clay like material has
been discovered at Bansi in Mirzapur district.
It has 62% Si02 , 32Yo Al20 3 and 2% loss on ignition.
The clay is non plastic and has a P.C.E.
value of Seger cone 32. Small fire clay brickets
were made out of it using different 'compositions
and firing tempera lures. The brickets showed a
P.C.E. value of Seger cone 30 or above. Porosity
ranged between 28-35%. Further trials
were necessary to bring down the porosity. It
was concluded that fireclay bricks conforming to
P.C.E. requirements of l.S. specification for
moderate heat duty refractories could be made
out of this material.
