Training Center Cement & Lime

In order to further improve the availability and productivity of cement and lime kilns, we have built a training facility with highly modern equipment and developed a training concept based on the state of the art in both industries. During a three-day training program, experienced RHI Magnesita experts convey specialist knowledge regarding the installation of refractory bricks and mixes. Apart from theoretical basics, the focus is placed on practical exercises on different full-scale models.


We are offering two types of courses on the theory and practice of the correct installation of refractory materials , which are tailored to the requirements of both the cement and lime industry:

  • Introduction to popular lining methods
  • Assessing the quality of installations
  • Recognize and avoid errors
  • Dealing with special lining situations
  • Practical training on full-scale models (rotary kiln with DAT rig, cooler, burner, shaft kiln)
Target group
  • All levels of plant staff involved with refractories: Shift foremen, technicians, warehousemen, installation teams, refractory champions, engineers and managers (production, process, maintenance, purchasing), plant managers.
