Ronald G. Brenneman served as manager of Engineering Services at Allied Mineral Products Inc., Columbus, Ohio, for 19 years.

Ronald G. Brenneman, who served as manager of Engineering Services at Allied Mineral Products Inc., Columbus, Ohio, for 19 years, passed away on January 23. He semi-retired in 2009 but continued to work as manager of Special Projects.

Prior to joining Allied, Ron held positions as assistant VP, Technical director, for Songer Corp., and executive VP of Hepworth Refractories and Armco Steel. For over 20 years at Armco, Ron worked in the ironmaking, engineering, refractories and graphite research groups. Ron’s more recent professional passion was for casthouse refractory design and special projects.

He received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from West Virginia Institute of Technology in 1967 and was a registered professional engineer. He was a member of the American Ceramic Society, AISE, ISS, Eastern States Blast Furnace and the Cove Oven Association through the years. Ron co-authored a casthouse refractories chapter of the AISE Steel Foundation’s “The Making, Shaping and Treating of Steel,” held patents, wrote and gave many presentations on optimizing refractory mechanical design, and enjoyed teaching about engineering refractory solutions. His legacy will stem from his enthusiasm to share and apply refractory knowledge, a torch he passed on to many in the refractory industry he loved for over 40 years.
