Research equipment Detailed information

Equipment name X-Ray Fluorescene (XRF)
Use Projects x-ray on the sample’s surface and conducts qualitative and quantitative analysis using
the intensity of fluorescent x-rays generated
Equipment name X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD)
Use Projects x-rays on the crystalline sample and measures the inter-facets distance, which is a specific
constant of each material, using x-rays diffracted so as to identify the crystalline materials
based on the result
Equipment name Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometer (ICP)
Use Conducts qualitative and quantitative analysis of atoms by measuring luminescence lines
and strength of cation
Equipment name Scanning Electron Microscope(SEM/EDS)
Use Project electronic beam on the sample surface and measures the wavelength and strength of
fluorescent x-rays generated to analyze types and content of elements of the sample
Equipment name Particle Size Analysis
Use Projects He-Ne Laser Beam on the cells where the samples are distributed and detects the diffracted
light with photodector to measure the size of particles
Equipment name TG/DTA
Use Heats up the sample and analyzes changes in its state (e.g. changes in weight or calories) by
comparing it to alumina reference
Equipment name Dilatometer
Use Measures the expansion/contraction rate of the sample by increasing the temperature from the room
temperature to the target temperature
Equipment name Carbon Analyzer
Use Measures the amount of free carbon and combined carbon contained in refractories
Equipment name Thermal Conductivity Tester
Use Measure thermal conductivity of refractories
Equipment name Tester of Refractoriness under Load
Use Measures deformation of refractories under load at a high temperature
Equipment name Compression Tester
Use Measures strength of refractories under load
Equipment name Modulus of Rupture Tester
Use Measure flexural strength of refractories under load
Equipment name Hot Modulus of Rupture Tester (Vacuum)
Use Measures flexural strength of refractories under load at a high temperature
Equipment name Refractory Tester
Use Measures refractoriness of refractories by comparing refractory sample to seger cone (SK),
the standard sample
Equipment name Abrasion Tester
Use Projects SiC on refractories at a constant pressure and measures the volume of surface area
damaged by abrasion
Equipment name Spalling Tester
Use A tester to measure sudden expansion or contraction of refractories, which leads to peeling,
by exposing them to rapid temperature rise or drop
Equipment name Super High Temperature Vacuum Furnace
Use A super high temperature(~2100℃) vacuum furnace for sintering of refractories
Equipment name Rotating Erosion Testing Apparatus
Use A pilot test equipment for predicting the lifespan of refractories, which helps observe erosion
resistance and structural spalling of molten steel
Equipment name High Speed Mixer
Use Large-capacity heating mixer
Equipment name Infrared Thermal Camera
Use A camera that detects temperature distribution of the furnace body to assess remaining refractories
