2020 UK Conference
Refractory materials are used to provide containment for high temperature processes. An understanding of how heat flows through a refractory lining and the thermal expansion of the refractory lining is critical to safe and effective design and operation of process plants.
This course will provide a working knowledge of the calculation of thermal gradients and thermal expansion allowances and is aimed at personnel who design linings and select and specify materials of construction. No knowledge of refractory materials is required.
· What is Thermal Conductivity and Thermal Expansion
· Thermal Gradient Calculation and Heat Transfer
· Thermal Expansion Calculation and Allowance
· Application of Thermal Calculations
The course will be made up of lecture sessions as well as problem-solving for individuals or small groups which will reinforce the key points.
Part 1: Tuesday 8 September 10.00am – 12.30pm GMT
Part 2: Wednesday 9 September 10.00am – 12.30pm GMT
