About this book

This book details the rigorous requirements for refractories designed for aluminium metallurgical processes: reduction, cast house, and anode production. The author describes requirements specific to the properties and structure of refractory materials that differentiate it from materials used for ferrous metallurgy, among others. A comparison is drawn between the properties and structure of refractories and carbon cathode materials from different  points of view: from the perspective of physical chemistry and chemical interactions during the metallurgical process and from the aspect of designing reduction pots and furnaces to accommodate the lifetime of metallurgical aggregates that are a part of aluminum refractory processes.

About the authors

Andrey Yurkov graduated from the Department of Ceramics and Refractories at the Moscow Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology. He holds a Ph.D. in structural ceramics and the Dr. Sci. in materials science of refractory materials. Professor Yurkov has more than a 100 publications. His areas of expertise and interests include materials science and processing of non-oxygen and oxygen-containing ceramics and refractories, and their applications in the aluminium industry. Dr. Yurkov is currently a research scientist at the Russian Aluminium company (RUSAL). He has also served as  the organizer and chairperson of the seminar and conference, “Refractories and Carbon Cathode Materials for the Aluminium Industry”.
