History of Enterprise Ukrainian Research Institute of Refractories named after A.S. Berezhnoy, JSC

The Ukrainian Research Institute of Refractories named after A.S. Berezhnoy was founded on October 31, 1927. The main task of the institute was the development of domestic refractory materials and organization of their production in order to significantly reduce imports.

Right away after the Institute foundation, both significant research on the physical chemistry of silicates, development of methods for determining of refractories properties and manufacture of necessary equipment, and technological research were carried out.

The scientific works carried out in the pre-war years were taken as basis for the domestic refractory industry. With direct participation of the Institute, new productions were built at Chasiv-Yarsky, Panteleimonivsky, Velyko-Anadolsky, Semiluksky, Nizhny Tagil, Bogdanovichsky, and Sukholozhsky refractory plants.

During the 2nd World War, the Institute carried out extensive work on the organization of refractories production from raw materials of the Ural, so that industrial enterprises were fully supplied with quality refractories, which allowed systematically increasing steelmaking capacity in the country east and partially meeting the needs of refractories in liberated areas.

In the first postwar decades, new types of refractories for various purposes were developed and put intro production, furnace lining designs were developed, in particular open-hearth lining, which increased their durability by 2 - 3 times and provided the possibility of intensifying open-hearth melting with oxygen.

In the following years, the Institute continued to work on the development of new types of refractory products and materials. The researches were carried out and the production of alumina, zirconia refractories and ceramics, chromia, fibrous and unshaped refractory materials was organized. A new production technology of refractories - vibrocasting, which allowed producing large and especially complex refractories of high quality, was developed.

Lately, the production of new generation refractories, competitive in the world market, was developed and mastered.
