Summary

As the composition and structure of refractory linings are optimized for any specific application, the extension of furnace-lining life is dependent on the control of the furnace environment. The influence of process variables and surface alteration of refractories on corrosion kinetics is discussed using specific examples from ironmaking and steel-making furnaces.
