High Temperature Times – BEER

Nothing says Thanksgiving like watching the Detroit Lions get notably trounced over a couple cold brewskis. Beer that you probably wouldn’t be enjoying without refractory expertise like that held by HarbisonWalker International!

This month on High Temperature Times™, aluminum application specialist Marc Palmisiano and glass application specialist Paul Stipanovich join to discuss the manufacturing process and refractories involved in aluminum can and glass bottle manufacturing. So crack open a cold one and listen in on how refractories put intensity to work and get these bottles made in preparation for the biggest drinking holiday of the year, Thanksgiving.

Season 2, Episode 10 available here!
