Monolithic Refractories: Installation and Dryout
|Publication Date:||1 April 2018|
This technical report covers the installation and dryout of monolithic refractory lining materials for hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI) applications. It discusses the best practice procedures and techniques used in the installation of refractory concrete, as well as those for air- and heat-setting plastics and ramming mixes. In addition, it discusses the need for curing and dryout, and procedures to achieve successful results. This instruction is consistent with API Standard 936, which is the HPI industry standard for the installation quality control of monolithic refractories. It also serves as the body of knowledge document for the API 936 Refractory Personnel certification program.
