Lucideon to Hold Refractories Training During CeramicsExpo Week for the Second Year in a Row

Following on from the success of this year’s US training sessions; Lucideon has announced that it will yet again be running one and two-day refractories training courses during CeramicsExpo week.

The training will take place either side of the show days, on 4 May and 7 and 8 May at the Crowne Plaza Cleveland Airport Hotel.

Two courses will run over the three days; delegates will therefore have the option of attending both or just one of the courses.

The first module, R7, taking place on Monday 4 May, will give an introduction to refractories and refractory testing, enabling delegates to understand the basic building blocks that make up the structure of a refractory material, where they are used and how they are made. The principles of refractory testing and its limitations will be covered, as well as the importance of material specification data sheets and the information they provide.

Refractories for the glass industry will be covered in R6, taking place on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 May. The two-day course is mapped to cover both glass furnaces and regenerators, providing delegates with the necessary knowledge using Lucideon's expertise and know-how of production processes refractory testing and failures.

Jan Theron will be the trainer for both courses.  Jan is the former 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.

Caroline Mullington, technology partnerships manager at Lucideon, said:

"Because of the positive feedback we received this year, we have decided to once again run our refractories training in the same week as CeramicsExpo 2020. 

"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."
