Refractory Material Selection for Steelmaking

Thomas Vert

April 2016  |  392 pages

Hardcover $179.95


The first book since 1974 written by a steelmaking end user and refractory engineer. Why do you pick the refractory you do? How do you choose? Where do you start the selection process? The answers to these questions must always take into account the balance of competing interests among operations, purchasing, and the suppliers. Refractory Material Selection for Steelmaking is the ultimate guide to finding ideal answers to these questions. By following the step-by-step instructions—paired with detailed explanations and full-color diagrams—readers will be able to critically select the materials that are most appropriate for them.
