Refractories are inorganic, nonmetallic heat resistant materials that can withstand extreme temperatures, and in many cases chemical attack, abrasion, thermal shock and rough handling. They are widely used in the lining of high temperature surfaces, such as furnaces, kilns, reactors and other processing units in manufacturing, thermal, metallurgical and chemical equipment worldwide.

Refractory selection for a specific application is invariably built upon a combination of material qualities and its composition. Refractories are expensive, and any failure in the refractories can result in a great loss of production time, equipment, and sometimes the product itself. The various types of refractories also influence energy consumption and product quality; therefore, the problem of obtaining refractories best suited to each application is of supreme importance.

This 4 hour online course provides insight to the type of refractories, their properties and applications, and how they may be applied to give better fuel efficiency and service life.

This course is aimed at mechanical, chemical and process engineers, working in chemical, thermal, metal and mining, manufacturing and engineering industries.
