New book: Refractory Engineering - 3rd edition

Refractory engineering deals with the planning, design, calculation, construction and dismantling of systems that must maintain their shape and stability at very high temperatures (up to 2,000 °C). Skilled craftsmanship is required to ensure best possible maintenance, repair and modifications. Furthermore, these systems must have superb resistance to process-related physical and chemical attack.

In the completely revised 3rd edition of the specialist book “Refractory Engineering“ the authors focus extensively on the criteria for selecting the best suited refractories and connected proper design and construction methods for their installation. Furnaces in the iron and steel, chemical, petrochemical, lime, cement, glass industries, power and refuse incineration plants are featured in detail.
