MUHOPF

MUHOPF

MUHOPF is a multiple high-temperature test facility for material testing under controlled influence of oxygen.

This facility is so far unique in its type in the world. Its purpose is to determine so far unavailable material characteristics with a previously unavailable multifunctional measurement system.

Its uniqueness consists of the determination of thermomechanical and physical data without the adverse influence of reactive oxygen at very high temperatures. These data are used for the fundamental further development of an entire class of high-performance materials, e.g. carbon materials (high-performance brakes) and carbon composites, such as Magcarbon (for lining production equipment for steel production and processing).

It can be used, for instance, for

  • Thermophysical tests
  • Thermomechanical tests
  • Thermal shock tests

The project for  the “Set-up and installation of a multiple high-temperature test facility for material testing under controlled influence of oxygen (MUHOPF)” within the framework of the Metals-Ceramics-Plastics innovation cluster was supported under project number  8403.81029575 with funds from the European Structural Fund for Regional Development for achieving regional competitiveness and employment (RWB) (funding period 2007-2013, 01.10.2010 until 31.12.2011).

………

 

ReStaR is the acronym of a research project entitled “Review and improvement of testing Standards for Refractory products”. The project is supported by funding from the Research for the benefit of SMEs Theme of the Capacity Programme, under the 7th Research Framework Programme of the European Union. ReStaR started on 1st October 2013 and ran for 24 months. The project was coordinated by the European Centre for Refractories (ECREF) and involves 13 partners from 7 countries.
