Please, help me find the source about aluminothermic technology

Please, help me find the source about aluminothermic technology

(OP)
Sorry for my english! Non-native language :)

I'm looking for literature on aluminothermy. More specifically, the design of equipment for aluminothermy. Perhaps someone has a reference to the book or the address of the sites of companies that are engaged in the production of such equipment.
I would greatly appreciate your help!

RE: Please, help me find the source about aluminothermic technology

There are two mayor suppliers/designers of thermite welding charges in Europe: Elektro-Thermit (German) and RailTech (French).
Their website probably doesn't contain much propairity information, but it's a start.
You'll also find some technical information in the two standards related to thermite welding: EN14730 part 1 and 2.

If you should encounter any more suppliers/fabricants, please leave a message, as I would be interested in meeting them too.

Here are some pics:

Many thanks for the link!
These manufacturers make equipment for welding rails. We have a slightly different problem - reducing metal oxides using aluminothermy. And equipment - a reaction chamber. Screw feed charge in the chamber. Furnace, and so on. Up to the aspiration system.
But in any case, - useful links. If I find something on my topic - I am sure to tell you.

I'm working on the creation and production of ferroniobium & ferrotitanium. Trial experiments were successful. Now I need to increase production. That's why I am looking for information about those who engage in such equipment.
Good day for all!

White Paper - Design for Additive Manufacturing
With a growing number of parts manufactured directly by additive manufacturing techniques, it is important to lay down design principles suitable for such manufacturing processes and to ensure parts are designed for additive manufacturing. There are several factors that are to be considered at the design stage. Few such design issues in additive manufacturing are discussed in this paper. Download Now
