    Diverse applications within one industry leading to equally diverse requirements in some cases.Some areas thermal measurements vital, other areas very little requirement.

    Ceramics Industry Refractories

    Temperature range Ambient - 1600C

    Thermal Property Data Thermal conductivityData for heat transfer calculations Data for finite element analysis eg texp, tcond, thermomechanical props, emissivity, specific heat

    Training requirementsMeasurement of thermal conductivity, expansivity, emissivity and specific heat.Heat calculationsShortening of firing schedulesMeasurement of temperatureControl of temperature

    Questionnaires will be used to identify things like: All the different waste streams created along the production route; instances where waste is currently re-cycled internally (likely to be before firing); where waste is exported; what waste streams give the producer the greatest problems and why.CERAM will approach Linden Consultants Ltd, a company that received EU funding to create a waste database for the West Midlands. The viability of placing advanced ceramic producer waste information on their data base (subject to member company permission will be discussed. If appropriate CERAM will create a new database that can be accessed by the CERAM web-site. CERAM will further promote the database to non-ceramic companies in the hope of matching ceramic waste with non-ceramic producer material needs.Use Jo-Anne Dawson the CERAM environmental officer to check on classification of potentially toxic waste and current / possible future legislation relating to it.
