A very good 553 page paperback book, entirely unmarked and unworn, could pass for new. 1993 reprint of the 1973 first edition with 9 chapters, 14 appendices, name & subject indices. many figures and tables. In 1945, in the first edition of his book Steelplant Refractories, the author described the production and properties of the principal refractories and their application in steelmaking. At the request of The Iron and Steel Institute he produced in 1973 this generally applicable book on the production and properties of refractories. The approach which the author adopts is the result of consultation over many years with both producers and users. Each chapter discusses the raw materials employed, their properties, the manufacturing process and the properties of the products, together with a summary of present applications in the iron and steel, nonferrous metals, glass, cement and other industries. Each chapter has an extensive bibliography, subdivided under subject headings. At the end of the book is a series of appendices, including a glossary of terms, the properties of minerals found in refractories and slags, the recommended test methods for refractory materials, emfs of thermocouples, endpoints of Seger and Orton cones, and standard sieve sizes. There are also detailed subject and author indexes. The author has written his text so as to be scientific without being obscure and to present essential facts without unnecessary detail. The book has proved its long-term value not only to students but also to manufacturers, users and sales staff.
