Lucideon to Hold Refractories Training Course for Ceramics Expo Attendees
Jan Theron, president of the Institute of Refractories Engineers, will serve as the trainer on both days.
Lucideon recently announced that it run a two-day refractories training course for attendees of Ceramics Expo. The training will take place on April 29 and May 2 at the Marriott Cleveland Airport Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio. A separate course will run on each day; delegates have the option of attending both days or just one day of the course.
The first module, R1, will look at refractory materials and application areas, enabling delegates to understand how refractories are made, what determines their properties and how they behave. Material chemistry and physical properties will be covered, as well as the in-service environment and the manufacturing processes of shaped and unshaped components.
Understanding refractory properties and links to performance will be covered in R2, the second module. Attending the course will enable delegates to understand the principles of refractory testing and its limitations, as well as what test information can be used for the selection and prediction of in-service conditions. The importance of material specification data sheets and the information they provide will also be included.
Jan Theron, president of the Institute of Refractories Engineers, will serve as the trainer on both days. He has reportedly spent his career focusing on how to cost effectively improve lining quality, from looking at refractory selection and design evaluation to quality control and failure analysis.
