Scope The purpose of the furnace containment system is to hold both process materials and energy associated with pyrometallurgical processes. The methods in which the challenges of containing corrosive and abrasive materials at extreme temperatures will be addressed, whether they are used across commodities or technology specific. There is much to be learned from cross-commodity and cross-technology perspectives. The intention of this symposium is to create a platform for the exchange of ideas on the challenges, solutions, failures, and successes in furnace containment designs and applications. Bringing together perspectives from industry, design houses, and research institutions will be ideal. For the symposium, the furnaces associated with solid-state processes are included although the main focus will be smelters.

The event will include, but not be limited by, the following themes:
Advances in furnace lining design philosophies
Advances in furnace design configurations
Problems experienced and their solutions implemented during construction and commissioning
Integration of new concepts into old smelters
Back to basics: refractory materials, shells, and cooling systems

Abstracts Due 07/01/2023
Proceedings Plan Planned: Stand-alone book in which only your symposium’s papers would appear
