- Brian Harris (NSG, UK)                   
- Christian Kunert (Schott, Germany)
- Kenji Matano (AGCC, Japan)          


 

Evaluation of different test methods for corrosion of silica bricks
- Brian Harris (NSG, UK) 
- Burak İzmirlioğlu (ŞİŞECAM, Turkey)
- Christian Kunert (Schott, Germany)

Next steps:

- Workout the concept "TC11 recommendation for corrosion of silica bricks" and do RRT
- Final decision for "TC11 recommendation for blistering test" and official publication
- Experience change for field test of refractories

 

Next Meeting:

October 2019. Location and date will be communicated later.
