Damp-proofing by using ventilated dry linings is one method.
With dry linings such as silica, loss of density is critical because it increases interconnected porosity proportionately and, more importantly, opens up cellular pores closed by compaction, thus radically increasing access for metal and slag.
Although a perfectly dry lining doesn't exist, even silica bonded with boron oxide will retain natural moisture, with the degree of moisture retention dependent upon the grain's moisture, humidity in operation and bag integrity/time of storage.
