The Latest Trends in Refractories Technology for Iron and Steel Production at Nippon Steel Corporation
In this report, the trends in refractories technologies for iron and steel production at Nippon Steel Corporation in the last few decades are outlined. Amid dramatic changes in crude steel production accompanying increased ratios in higher quality of steel and sophisticated refining methods, in in our refractory ceramics R&D Div., actual machines have been realized by practicing developed outcomes with technologies for every production process relating to: refractory material quality, furnace building or execution, reparation, diagnosis, demolition, and recycling. Thus, continuing reduction in the unit consumption of refractories has been steadily performed. Additionally, technical issues are reduced to further enhance and maintain our international competitiveness in refractories technologies.
