A unified voice for the ore-based metallics industry

Blast Furnace Ironmaking Course, Ontario Canada

McMaster University is pleased to announce the McMaster University Blast Furnace Ironmaking Course.

The blast furnace has been, and will remain, the centerpiece of integrated facilities in the steel industry. Present-day ironmaking technology has evolved over many years through innovations in raw materials preparation, blast furnace design and blast furnace practice. Improvements in blast furnace operation usually have a significant impact on the well-being of the company. The blast furnace and its ancillary facilities are very complex and dynamic systems.

This course offers a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth view of blast furnace theory, operation, and best practices. Lectures are given by acknowledged experts in their fields coming from diversified backgrounds and global experience. It is an invaluable course for managers, operators, engineers, researchers, or anyone involved in supplying equipment, materials, or raw materials to the ironmaking industry.

A broad range of topics will be covered ranging from blast furnace design, reactions, day-to-day operation, operation during challenging conditions, campaign extension strategies, safety aspects, and many more. In addition to the lectures, further learning and networking opportunities are gained through open discussions, training exercises/simulations, and a plant tour of a local ironmaking facility.

More information is available on McMaster University's website.

The organising committee includes members from Cleveland-Cliffs, Arcelor Mittal and IIMA fellow Joe Poveromo.
