Refractory Technology

22. April 2018 - 25. April 2018

Applications, Wear Mechanism and Failures

This seminar is intended for operating engineers of the iron and steel industry, the manufacturer and the user industries as well as employees of purchasing departments who wish to use the experience of manufacturers and users for their own activities.

Maintenance and operating personnel, supervisors responsible for plant and unit operations, and managers responsible for decisions on refractory problems will learn about new materials and installation methods. Refractory installers, third party inspectors and contract maintenance personnel will particularly benefit from detailed discussions on new installation techniques and materials.

Further information will follow soon
