Refractory Optimization in Steelmaking

This half day short course will provide an intense introduction to the selection of refractories in steel plants including:

  • Why do you pick the refractory you do?
  • How do you choose?
  • Where do you start the selection process?

The answers to these three questions are complex – it is always a balance of competing interests between Operations, Purchasing, and the Suppliers – the refractory selector is at a crossroads to decide which is the correct material for each application.

The course will give key principles and examples that will allow a selector to engage competently in the process of selecting refractories for steel ladles, BOF’s, EAF’s, etc.

Each participant will receive a copy of Refractory Material Selection for Steelmaking
