Refractory Engineering
Materials - Design - Construction

Editor: DGFS
2nd edition 2004,
486 p. , hardcover
ISBN: 9783802731556

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; drying; heating; heating-up and cooling down; quality management; industrial safety, occupational safety; health protection, environmental protection.
