With extensive experience in the field of refractories, from failure investigations to product and process performance optimization, we deliver refractories training courses to companies worldwide to a varied range of industries including: glass, cement, refractories, petrochemical, iron & steel, lime and incinerator sectors.
The scheduled refractories training modules will take place at our Staffordshire headquarters; however the courses can always be customized and/or given on-site to meet individual business requirements.
Whether you are looking to refresh and update your understanding of refractories, have no prior or a basic knowledge, the modules are also highly beneficial to the more experienced whatever your business function.
The modules are suitable for designers, installers, process leaders, production and manufacturing operatives, maintenance teams, purchasing teams, material scientists or chemical and process engineers, project managers, R&D, quality and laboratory technicians, technical teams, refractory and equipment manufacturers, installers, suppliers, distributors and contractors.
Designed to be interactive, with the use of case studies, our tutor will draw upon his knowledge, skills and experience to provide attendees with the theory behind manufacturing processes. This will include design, materials and testing that can be applied to the everyday challenges faced by industry.
Places are limited to 12 people per module.
