Iron & Steel Industry
It’s so important to ensure that products are right-first time, processes are
optimised and failures and waste are kept to a minimum. The testing & analysis and
consultancy services that we offer to the Iron & Steel industries is diverse, thanks
to our materials expertise, analytical capabilities, testing facilities and industry
The iron and steel industry is the largest consumer of refractory materials worldwide,
accounting for around two thirds of refractory usage. From primary to secondary
steel making processes a diversity of vessels exists for the major units, such as
the blast furnace and electric arc furnace and the more maintenance-intensive components,
such as launders, tap holes and submerged entry nozzles. From assessment of proposed
lining materials and designs to inspection of deteriorated linings, we offer a range
of refractory services.
Materials Analysis & Characterisation
Analysis of both raw materials and finished products helps to inform new product
development, pinpoint failures and optimise performance.
At RMRC we offer a wide range of testing services - from chemical and physical analysis
to metallographic analysis and surface and coatings analysis.
When failures occur, we work quickly and effectively to analyse and diagnose problems
in order to minimise downtime, improve product and material process efficiency and
Product & Process Optimisation
Manufacturers require more efficient, better quality and more cost-effective processes
to meet ever-demanding markets and to compete on a global scale. At RMRC, we offer
full support in scale-up and process optimisation for both new and existing products
