We offer the dry-pressing method of brick-making. This process includes drying the clay in a drum-drier
for about 10 to 15 minutes, then using a crusher to grind it into powder, and then, finally, putting it into
a toggle press to make the finished bricks.
Since pressing is performed at 8 to 10 percent of powder moisture, the pressed bricks do not require any further
drying and are fed directly into the kiln right after pressing. This eliminates the energy costs associated with
drying green bricks and the additional costs of admixtures that are normally used to improve the bricks' drying properties.
Even in cases where there are salts in the clay, they do not appear on the bricks' surface. The technological
equipment we use is much simpler and consumes less power than other such technologies. In addition, the costs
of building our factories are lower, because dry-pressing equipment is much less expensive to buy than other
types of similar equipment.
Also, the size of the factory itself is much smaller; there is no brick-drying section,
which usually takes up significant space.
Comparative analysis of the production process at different brick-making factories shows that by implementing
the dry-pressing method of brick-making, costs per brick can be reduced by 300 percent, thus providing higher
profits to the producer.
It should be stressed that dry-pressing factories take up three times less space than factories employing the
extrusion method, and construction costs at those factories are five times less expensive.
For brick firing we recommend using circular kilns with removable panels. Such equipment combines the advantages
of a circular kiln and a tunnel furnace. That is, on the one hand, the equipment is completely power-driven, and on
the other hand, it doesn't require a fleet of kiln trolleys. In batches of 300 to 500, bricks are loaded into the kiln
and unloaded from it through a panel.
After loading is completed, the panel is covered with fireproof plates, and firing is performed in the same way as in a
regular circular kiln.
Dispersed gas extraction is an advantage of such a kiln. It guarantees the production of bricks of a higher quality
than those made in a tunnel furnace.
Our kilns are cost-effective and consume significantly less gas and power than other types. The construction costs of
these kilns are 200 percent less than the costs for a similar tunnel furnace.
A circular kiln with a removable panel and a potential annual production capacity of 15 million bricks is only 45 meters long.
We provide the most cost-effective technology, from raw clay to finished brick.
