This book has been used as a valuable training manual for several decades. Non-experts in the industry and trade wishing to acquire some general knowledge about steel and its production and processing routes will find this book a useful, easy-to-understand introductory work. The current edition has been completely revised, including for the first time the topic of plant management.

The tundish represents the inextricable link between batch steelmaking and the continuous casting process. In its initial stages of development, the tundish was regarded as nothing more than a reservoir to hold sufficient liquid steel to provide a constant head over the mold, and to permit a ladle exchange to occur without interruption of sequence casting. Continuous Casting, Volume 10 provides a road map to tundish technologies for steelmakers of varying levels of expertise.
For ingot processing
by rolling and forging, it is essential that the ingot surface is free from
defects and that the interior ingot structure complies with the requirements of
the intended use. This applies to conventional casting methods as well as
special melting methods. The bilingual German-English catalog is subdivided
into ingot surface defects, ingot head defects, interior ingot defects and
defects occurring during ESR.
Christer IdhammarResults Oriented Reliability and Maintenance
Management is an inspiring source of knowledge in reliability and
maintenance management, leadership, execution and practical tips. This
maintenance management book is comprised of independent reliability and
maintenance articles on a wide variety of subjects. It affords the reader
ingenious insights and solutions to everyday maintenance management problems.
Topics covered include productivity, competitiveness, failure analysis,
teamwork, organizational structures, key performance indicators, benchmarking,
reliability-centered maintenance, implementation of world-class reliability and
maintenance practices, the new role of the supervisor, cost-cutting,
flexibility, multi-craft, preventive maintenance inspection intervals, and many
One price for the book and CD-ROM together! Thiscomprehensive work is the definitive book on roll technology. Sections include:principles of roll metallurgy; roll manufacturing processes; principles of therolling process; applications and performance; reclamation and repair;processing rolls; and inspection and user preparation.
This preventive maintenance book is a must have for all maintenance professionals. It is a unique resource for improving maintenance management processes and learning smart preventive maintenance (PM), condition monitoring, inspection and troubleshooting techniques on a wide variety of components, including pumps, motors, gears, bearings, chain, pipes and valves, couplings, seals, fans, lubrications, lifting equipment, hydraulics, pneumatics, compressors, steam, electrical systems, etc. Condition monitoring and PM techniques are presented, together with inspection tools and examples of how to inspect and prevent failures for a number of standard components. This book carefully explains how to set up and improve a preventive maintenance program in any industry.
Gerd StolteThis book is made for engineers who build plants,
metallurgists who operate them, as well as researchers. The presentation is
based mainly on treatment practices and results obtained during the last decade
of the 20th century. Contents include: a description and results of secondary
metallurgical processes; cleanliness of steel and slag management; influence of
ladle refractory on the melt; continuous casting and cleanliness; environmental
considerations; ecological balances; and automation systems.
The AISTech 2016 Conference Proceedings Digital version contains papers from the technical sessions at steel's premier event of 2016 on a USB drive. These papers offer a wide range of technological advances in the iron and steel industry, including everything from coke production to continuous casting to sensors and automation.
The 2019 Directory - Iron and Steel Plants, is now available! The "black book" known industry-wide for its comprehensive details on North American steel producers and suppliers from around the world will ship in January 2019. The Directory includes information on capacities, products and equipment for more than 1,500 companies and 15,000 key personnel, with easy-to-use geographical indexing. The entire contents of the Directory are on the USB that is included with the book. The newly updated facility tables are now organized by facility type, allowing users to locate plant information quickly and efficiently. A listing of associations and technical societies is also included.
