Pizza is a global delicacy and the process of making it requires a lot of cooking tools and materials. A pizza oven is a specialized oven equipment for pizza making, and there are many types of refractory bricks and materials that can be used in the construction of a pizza oven.Fireramo has compiled a list of refractory bricks and materials used in the construction of a pizza oven and the advantages of using refractory bricks in the construction of a pizza oven.
The use of bricks to build a pizza oven makes a big difference in the texture and flavor of the pizza pie. This is because the heat generated by the refractory bricks is uniform and helps in cooking the dough perfectly. The porous nature of the bricks absorbs moisture, thus preventing the pizza from becoming soggy.
Refractory bricks are commonly used in pizza ovens in structural areas such as the oven floor, walls and vaults. Commonly used refractory bricks are fireclay bricks and high aluminum bricks.
Fire clay bricks and high alumina bricks have excellent resistance to high temperatures and they are very dense, which helps to distribute heat evenly and can give the pizza a good taste. They also have a long service life, making them ideal for building pizza oven bottoms and walls.
Refractory bricks are used in the insulation of pizza ovens to reduce heat transfer. Commonly used refractory bricks include lightweight insulation bricks, and ceramic fiber insulation bricks.
The insulating properties of thermal bricks help maintain an even temperature distribution inside the pizza oven. They reduce heat loss and uneven distribution within the oven, allowing pizzas to be evenly heated during the baking process, avoiding scorching or uneven cooking.
Refractory castables are commonly used to cast the base and walls of pizza ovens and to form a flat surface. Commonly used refractory castables include high alumina castables and low cement castables.
By casting refractory castables into molds, they form a strong and durable oven floor and wall structure that can withstand high temperatures and thermal cycling. Refractory castables also have good thermal conductivity and insulation properties. Through the addition of refractory castables, pizza ovens can resist the erosion of acids and alkalis, high temperature and flames during a long period of time, prolonging the service life of pizza ovens.
Above are the refractory materials commonly used to build pizza ovens, which play a key role in ensuring the quality of pizza baking and the structural stability of the pizza oven. Choosing refractory bricks of consistent quality is important for pizza ovens, for more information please contact Fireramo.
