Materials - Design - Construction
2nd edition 2004,
486 p. , hardcover
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 protection of the supporting structure of the furnaces and plants
against too high temperatures.
Eight years after the first edition was published this (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 – regardless if 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.
Materials used in refractory engineering; design; installation examples;
