Lucideon will hold a two-day training course focused on ‘Refractories for the Glass Industry in October.

The course will be held at the Lucideon headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent, UK, on Wednesday 9th & Thursday 10th October 2019.

The module will cover glass furnaces on day one and regenerators on day two, looking at the parts, conditions, requirements and refractory types required.

The training is said to be ideal for anyone involved in the selection of refractories from across the glass industry workforce.

Attendees will gain the necessary knowledge enabling them to transfer the learning into their day-to-day activities.

Jan Theron, Refractories Training Tutor at Lucideon said: “The performance of refractories in the glass manufacturing process is key to overall performance including quality, energy efficiency and economical performance.

“The module will enable attendees to go back to their workplace with an understanding of the principles of refractories in the glass industry.

“The course content covers the applications, constraints and characteristics, the critical properties and the interactions between refractory and glass which can cause glass defects.”

Lucideon also provides in-house refractories training solutions that are specifically suited to a company’s needs, giving flexibility to arrange the content, times and location best suited to an organisation.
