CIR Laboratory has access to thermodynamic modeling and physical simulation tools that can benefit your company by allowing the optimization of your processes.
To be able to provide its customers with characterisation tools, that will enable CIR Laboratory to formulate or to identity better industrial materials for specific applications, we specialize in the design and the creation of physical modeling tests that reproduce operational conditions. Many of these designs are already available while others can ben set-up on demand.
Among the traditional physical simulation tests available at CIR Laboratory, here are some examples:
- The CIREP Bellyband Test (Physical simulation of refractories corrosion at the metal line of aluminum industry's reverberatory furnances)
- The J-CIREP Test (Physical simulation of potlining refractories degradation),
- The C.I.T.-CIREP Test (Physical simulation of Corrosion, mechanical Impact and Thermal shock interactions),
- The C.A.T.-CIREP Test(Physical simulation of Corrosion, Abrasion (and/or erosion) and Thermal shock interactions),
- The F.T.-CIREP Test (Physical simulation of damaging conditions by the action of low intensity and repetitive thermal shocks - thermal fatigue).
Among the more recent physical simulation tests developped at CIR Laboratory, here are some examples:
- High Temperature Abrasion Resistance Test (based on ASTM C 704 - 1650°C max.), for the company Groupe Réfraco
- Dynamic Corrosion Tests
- Rotary Furnace Test (slag resistance - ASTM C 874), for the company Horne (Xstrata Copper) Foundry
- Rotary Crucible Test (simulation of pyrometallurgical processes), for the compny Silicium Bécancour (Silbec)
- Fluorine Gas Resistance Test, for the company Bibby-Ste-Croix Foundry (Canada Pipe Co. Ltd.)
- Filtration Testile Capture Capacity Measurement Test, for the company Bibby-Ste-Croix Foundry (Canada Pipe Co. Ltd.)
- Side Well Furnaces' Lining Corrosion Resistance Test, for the company Novelis Corporation
- Alkalies Corrosion Resistance Test, for the company Rio Tinto Alcan
