Why Choose this Training Course?

Online Training Course Overview

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 Industrial Refractories online training course is designed to provide a detailed presentation of refractory technology 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 emphasize and strengthen the key learning points
