We are currently rescheduling the programme for the second half of the year.
Electrical Engineering of Arc Furnaces
Aug 24th, 2020 – Aug 26th, 2020
Leading experts will present basic principles and new technologies of electric steelmaking for maintenance and operating personnel, supervisors responsible for plant and unit operations and managers. Steelshop installers, third party inspectors, and contract maintenance personnel will particularly benefit from detailed discussions on new developments and techniques.
Continuous Casting of Steel - Practical and Scientific Approaches
Aug 31st, 2020 – Sep 3rd, 2020
This Continuous Casting Course is designed to train persons in continuous casting of steel. In half a week the essential topics of CC are explained in detail. The lectures are supplemented by exercises to intensify learning. The course is suitable to give an overview to newcomers and to train operating engineers in theoretical fundamentals.
Although oxygen steelmaking is a well-known process there are a lot of current challenges for the operating engineer: the quality of raw materials, process control, different operating practices, modelling, CFD and Industry 4.0. Next to these new questions the seminar programme also includes the important basics ther-modynamics, chemical reactions kinetics, heat and mass balance and a lecture on tramp elements. The participants will learn about modern processes on oxygen steelmaking and will particularly benefit from detailed discussions
Refractory Technology - Applications, Wear Mechanism and Failures
Nov 22nd, 2020 – Nov 25th, 2020
This seminar is intended for operating engineers of the iron and steel industry, the manufacturer and the user industries as well as employees of purchasing departments who wish to use the experience of manufacturers and users for their own activities.
Maintenance and operating personnel, supervisors responsible for plant and unit operations, and managers responsible for decisions on refractory problems will learn about new materials and installation methods. Refractory installers, third party inspectors and contract maintenance personnel will particularly benefit from detailed discussions on new installation techniques and materials.
The seminar places the emphasis on quality of raw materials and on modern processes and methods in coke making. Lectures on iron and steel making, environmental aspects, refractories and by-products round off the programme.
This seminar is developed for: Maintenance and operating staff / Supervisors responsible for decisions on metallurgy, energy, purchasing and environmental protection / Raw material and energy trading and purchasing staff.
The participants will learn about modern processes and methods in coke making and will particularly benefit from detailed discussions.
