With a team that has vast experience in pyrometallurgy, chemical metallurgy, refractory production, refractory installation and inspection, we are able to assist clients and prospective clients in all refractory and associated metallurgical related matters. RMS has access to a vast network of metallurgical & refractory expertise to supplement the current team.

Refractory Design

We can evaluate, improve / optimise or redesign refractory layouts to meet the requirements of the process design.

Manufacturing & Sourcing

We manufacture a full range of shaped and unshaped refractory products and can source products from our strategic partners in India and China to meet the needs of our clients.

Third Party Refractory QC/QA Inspections

Refractory QC / QA inspections before installation including refractory testing and analysis, and during installations. We have inspectors in China and India that can inspected refartory products after manufacture.

Refractory Life Optimisation

Through our expertise, we work together with clients to optimise the refractory life through evaluation of process and operational impacts on the refractory.


We offer refractory training courses to our clients and end users of refractories. This training is online and can also be offered at client sites.

Failure & Performance Analysis

We have the expertise to conduct refractory failure analysis, either before use or post mortem analysis. In addition we have the capability to test refractory performance in our technology centre.
