The R&D Center has a complete set of inspection equipment and advanced chemical inspection technology for refractories. From sample preparation to physical and chemical tests, we have been updating equipment and obsoleting outdated equipment, which greatly improves the laboratory work efficiency and chemical inspection accuracy. The laboratory of the R&D Center has a long-term cooperation with University of Science and Technology Liaoning, and assigns some of the technical backbones every year to get trained in the Inorganic Materials Engineering Center of the University and receive on-site explanations of relevant inspection principles and technologies, so as to improve the professional level of chemical inspection technicians. Every year, we also organize business exams among relevant personnel, and the results are included in performance appraisal.
