LKAB Minerals offer virgin and recycled refractory minerals, alongside toll processing and recycling services to the industry.
The International Colloquium on Refractories and Institute of Refractories Engineers Annual conference were prime opportunities to promote our range of refractory minerals and refractory services in the UK and Germany.
The 56th International Colloquium on Refractories, hosted in Aachen, Germany in September provided an opportunity to promote LKAB Minerals brand and image along with our recycled refractory products and toll processing services. This was the first time LKAB Minerals have exhibited at the event and it proved useful in building awareness of our recycled products in particular, with a number of companies being aware of us but not our recycled product range.
Topics at the event included: Castables for Industrial Applications – still room for improvement; Refractory raw materials supply – is there cause for concern?; and Lightweight Insulating refractory bricks – technology and applications; for a full breakdown of topics, please visit http://www.feuerfest-kolloquium.de/kolloquium-2013/downloads/Programm.pdf.
Mark Moriarty, Sales Manager for LKAB Minerals commented "this show was great for showcasing our portfolio of products and services. As a result, a number of leads have been gained, particularly in Eastern Europe, Asia and the USA."
In October, LKAB Minerals exhibited and attended the Institute of Refractories Engineers Annual Conference at Hellaby Hall, Sheffield, UK. The conference again provided an opportunity to showcase the LKAB Minerals brand as well as network with a number of customers and new contacts. The one day conference covered a number of technical papers including Challenges and Opportunities for Refractory Manufacturers and Monolithic Refractory Materials for Fluidised Beds Boilers and was well attended by Industry members from the UK and Europe.
LKAB Minerals is a big supporter of the IRE with a number of advertisements being published in the Journals as well as supporting the conference and training day through the provision of giveaways. To find out more about the institute visit http://www.irengineers.co.uk/.
