LABORATORY TRAINING - THERMAL PROPERTIES OF REFRACTORIES - March 19, 20 & 21, 2019

A Three Day Course Sponsored by the Edward Orton Jr. Ceramic Foundation

Hotel Reservation

Registration Form (PDF)

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course is an intensive combination of classroom lectures and laboratory demonstration exercises that address the thermal properties of refractories. For each thermal property covered in this course, the relevant background theory is first provided to establish a common reference point. Next, the measurement technique for each property is described in detail. Finally, each measurement technique, including sample preparation, is demonstrated in the laboratory. The individual sessions are shown in the accompanying outline of the daily topics. This course is limited to 16 participants.

   WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM THIS COURSE:

Technicians and engineers who are involved in the manufacturing and testing, research and development, or consumption of refractory materials will find this course beneficial. Refractory installers and maintenance personnel may also benefit from this course. A high level technical or engineering background is not essential to take this course, although technical professionals will find the subject matter informative and useful.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

The objective of the lecture portion of this course is to provide the participants with an understanding of the thermal properties of refractories and their corresponding measurement techniques. The objective of the laboratory sessions is to provide the participants with direct experience in fabricating test specimens and the application of standard test methods.
