InsPyro improves metallurgical processes by research-based industrial projects and services and develops new sustainable high-temperature processes in cooperation with its customers.
InsPyro is a spin-off of the KU Leuven research group "Thermodynamics in Materials Engineering".
InsPyro's team can assist you with high-temperature materials interaction problems. Our top competences are:
- Improving metal yield and preventing metal losses to slag
- Reducing interactions with refractory
- Improving slag physical properties
- Optimizing solidification of metal and slag
- Improving slag mineralogy and treatment for reuse
- Controlling the levels of non-metallic inclusions
- Reducing energy consumption
... but more importantly, read what our customers say about us.
InsPyro can be your partner as a metallurgy consultant. We provide optimisation solutions based on thermodynamic calculations, experimental set-ups and analysing techniques. We also support your own researchers with our metallurgical tools such as calculated phase diagrams or phase equilibria. We can organise custom made courses on different topics in material science and thermodynamics, and provide you with educational tools for working with phase diagrams.
InsPyro helped us to improve refractory performance at different steps of the melting and casting process, by carrying out high-quality characterisations of the corrosion of refractory materials in contact with liquid steel.

A key succes factor of InsPyro is the ability to solve practical problems from a strong theoretical background. The presented results are quickly applicable on an industrial scale.
RIO TINTO MINERALS
A modeling study of the phase chemistry of a falling slag composition undertaken by InsPyro for Rio Tinto Minerals, has been instrumental in providing support for a potential customer interested in the stabilisation of its ladle slag with Vitroc(r) Anhydrous Borax.
Magotteaux Int. is developing new wear resistant metal/ceramic composite materials. InsPyro helped us to get quick results to specific needs with thermodynamic calculations and professional advice. This allows Magotteaux to speed up the development of new products. ...
