HTT: Refractory Mineralogy: Aluminas

This month on High Temperature Times™, we start a new series looking at refractory materials and what makes them so special. To start of this multi-part series, Analytical Research Scientist Stephen Wisneski joins to talk about alumina based materials and their role in refractory technology. Starting from the dirtiest of dirt, and working our way to high purity materials, we discuss the important work done by HWI’s analytical team at the Advanced Technology Research Center (ATRC) and how they keep the industry moving. If you’d like to learn more about refractory mineralogy, reach out to our technical marketing team.
