Lucideon to Hold Refractories Training for CeramicsExpo Attendees
Lucideon has announced that it will be running a two-day refractories training course for attendees of CeramicsExpo.
The training will take place either side of the show days, on 29 April and 2 May at the Marriott Cleveland Airport Hotel.
A separate course will run on each day; delegates therefore have the option of attending both 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 and 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, and 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 is also included.
Jan Theron will be the trainer on both days. Jan is the current president of the Institute of Refractories Engineers and has 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.
Mandy Rymill, marketing communications manager at Lucideon, said:
“We decided to run our refractories training in the same week as CeramicsExpo as, last year, we met a lot of refractories manufacturers and users at the show.
“We usually hold our courses in the UK, although we do run courses by webinar with clients from around the world. Co-locating with CeramicsExpo is a great way for us to deliver the courses in person in the US.
