Refractory linings must be installed in plants and furnaces operated by the nonferrous metal, iron and steel, glass, construction material, chemical and petrochemical industries as well as in power plants and refuse incinerators. Consequently, refractory engineering is charged with a major task: control the fire and protect the supporting structure of the furnaces and plants against high temperatures.
Eight years after the first edition was published the second edition has been completely revised to include the latest developments in refractory engineering. Consequently, state-of-the-art refractory engineering is covered. The new edition has an additional special feature on the linings in furnaces operated in foundries.
The authors focus in great detail on the selection criteria for refractory materials, specific design and installation. Several illustrations (in colour) and installation examples taken from various industrial sectors provide detailed and clearly arranged information on the connections between design and application of the refractories.
For any person having to deal with refractory engineering and refractories in any manner – whether they be builder of industrial furnaces, engineer or designer – this updated book with its immense amount of specific information is a reference book that he or she must possess.Biografía del autor:
