API TR 978
Monolithic Refractories: Manufacture, Properties, and Selection
|Publication Date:||1 March 2019|
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 addresses the need for curing and dryout 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. API 936 also serves as a body of knowledge document for the API certification program for refractory practitioners.
NOTE API TR 979 and API TR 980 are additional reports listed in Section 2, designed to provide a complete discussion of the monolithic refractory subject.
