Do you have a refractory installation scheduled shortly or one planned for the future? If your answer to this question is "yes," our training course will benefit your organization.

Using theory and case studies, the one-day course will help you to plan for your next major refractory installation and the quality control elements that are essential, whether it's a monolithic, castable or brick lining. The course content has been designed to cover all aspects of onsite refractory installation to help you ensure that your new installation is of the highest quality, on schedule and of optimal performance.
