API TR 979
Applications of Refractory Lining Materials
|Publication Date:||1 October 2018|
This technical report focuses specifically on the information on the applications of refractories contained in two American Concrete Institute (ACI) refractories documents:
- ACI 547.R-79, State-of-the-Art Report: Refractory Concrete;
- ACI 547.1R-89, State-of-the-Art Report: Refractory Plastics and Ramming Mixes.
The original content of these ACI reports was focused primarily on steel- and glass-making applications, which represent the largest refractory markets. API, in tailoring the revision of this content to the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI), has greatly expanded the text pertaining to the specialized oil refining and petrochemical processing applications. At the same time, API has retained and updated the information covering applications outside of the HPI (see Section 5) because of the similarities and applicability that this information has for refractory professionals in these other industries.
