MAGNESIA, in ancient geography the name of two cities in Asia Minor and of a district in eastern Thessaly, lying between the Vale of Tempe and the Pagasaean Gulf.
According to tradition, reinforced by the similarity of names, it was founded by colonists from the Thessalian tribe of the Magnetes, with whom were associated, according to Strabo, some Cretan settlers (Magnesia retained a connexion with Crete, as inscriptions found there attest).
South and west of the temple are many other remains of the Roman city, including a fairly perfect theatre excavated by Hiller von Gartringen, and the shell of a large gymnasium.

 Magnesia - Forms, Applications and Production Processes
Fused Magnesia (MgO) is normally manufactured by the electric arc melting of caustic calcined magnesia, deadburned magnesia or raw magnesite in furnaces at temperatures in excess of 2750°C, producing a refractory product whose altered crystalline structure is such that its characteristics and performance are superior to competing materials.
Fused magnesia is superior to deadburned magnesia in strength, abrasion resistance and chemical stability.
Electrical grade fused magnesia can be given a uniform silicon coating for greater resistance to moisture absorbance during heating element manufacture; this also improves the cold insulation resistance of low duty elements exposed to conditions of humidity.

 Magnesia doped alumina core material - Patent 4102689
the microstructure of the sintered magnesia doped alumina is characterized by a matrix comprising an interconnecting network of magnesia doped alumina defining a plurality of interstices in which magnesium aluminate spinel is deposited, and the core material is removable from the solidified casting by autoclave leaching in leaching solutions selected from KOH and NaOH.
Below this magnesia content limit, leaching times become too long to be commercially important for cores or specimens having less than 20 percent porosity, where the porosity is not interconnected.
In the second procedure, the mix of magnesia and alumina is prepared and calcined at a temperature of 1,500.degree.

 Expansion of Cement Containing Crystalline Magnesia With and Without Fly Ash and Slag
Crystalline magnesia (periclase) is traditionally considered an undesirable compound in cements since it hydrates slowly at normal temperatures and, hence, causes a delayed expansion.
The rate and amount of expansion of cements containing magnesia depend on many factors including the quantity, fineness and calcination temperature of magnesia, cement constituents and strength, presence of mineral admixtures such as fly ash and slag, and storage or service conditions (temperature and moisture).
The expansion behavior of portland cements containing magnesia under normal (service) conditions is different from that under the autoclave conditions (high temperature and high pressure).
