I have a cracked firebrick in the ash compartment of my Eco Angus 80. New bricks seem quite expensive. Has anybody repaired or built a firebrick to use in an Eco Angus biomass unit?

They last about 3 years, but you can patch them up with fire cement for a while.

Only expensive if the back of the combustion chamber burns up.

Try looking at the kilnlining or vitcas website. They have all sorts of refractory bricks, mays firecement etc.

Mine is coming up for two years and is showing signs of cracking despite careful handling. What does concern me is cracking of the concrete base in the upper loading chamber.

Will be interested to hear where you get a replacement or method of repair.

Did you ever replace your firebricks in the end? Mine have fallen apart after six years of patching with fire cement.

You can replace any brickwork with.

Ref " https://www.ibhs.co.uk/25kg-box-ramtite-45-mouldable.html "

Rated at 1400 Deg C.  Just remove defective parts and knock in with a small hammer
to replace any shape.

with the Cement versions you have to mix with required volume of water and then  pre heat very
slowly to stop it exploding during warm up.

With mouldable there is no water. Bash it in. Warm it up.

Just to say as Eco Angus Ltd we always keep the firebricks in stock on a 2 day delivery.
Also bear in mind that even if the firebrick splits in 2 you can still use them by keeping them pushed together and it does not affect the scientific integrity of the product.
So basically work them to the end of their useful life until you replace them.
