Why Choose this Training Course?

Refractories are considered the critical factor for successful and reliable operation of many high-temperature industrial processes. They are often a major cost item both in general maintenance and also in terms of unscheduled downtime of production units arising from premature material failure. There is a continuous need for technical professionals involved in operation of these processes to be well informed about new technologies related to the refractory material and their physical and technical characteristics.

This training course is designed to provide a detailed discussion of refractory technology as related to high-temperature requirements for different industries. The course will be focused on the practical aspects of refractory evaluation, selection, installation, maintenance and repair techniques in a number of industrial applications. The course will include several workshops with real-world case studies, and practical examples that will involve team work of all participants.

This training course will feature:

  • Design characteristics of refractories: Thermal, Mechanical and Chemical
  • Methods of testing refractories
  • Efficient installation of refractories for various applications
  • Root cause analysis of failures encountered in operation
  • Guidelines for inspection, maintenance and repair of refractories

What are the Goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain characteristics of different types of industrial refractories
  • Better understand refractory properties: mechanical, thermal and chemical
  • Implement most appropriate installation techniques
  • Understand issues related to their quality and reliability
  • Analyze results of inspection and testing
