On testing side: firing under controled and severe atmosphere

 

High temperature efficient management is essential for the production of materials involved in human activities, such as glass or steels. Refractories or ceramics represent an important cost in the overall manufacturing costs of materials: Some examples show that refractories represent 10% of steel manufacturing cost in some countries. Important improvements were made in the past years that allow to increase corrosion resistance of refractories, thus to improve service lifetime. As a matter of fact, the global quantity of refractory used for one ton of glass or steel has strongly decreased.
