The principle of direct setting on wagons consists of loading the dryer with raw bricks on kiln wagons, and is specially designed for clays with low drying shrinkage and high mechanical resistance, allowing extrusion with low humidity and high pressure (stiff extrusion).
This type of dryer uses the kiln wagons to transport the raw bricks to the drying installation, which allows a smaller number of loading and unloading devices.
In addition, this type of dryers allows to increase its capacity of simultaneous production, based on the acceleration of the kiln production rate, with a low investment in mechanisms, a reduction of the general maintenance of the plant and a better optimization of the production process.
In Algeria, our Customer El Rym needed to build a factory with a capacity of 800t/day, equivalent to 280.000t/year, with a direct setting on kiln car dryer process.
In Malaysia, Hap Kee, Verdés customer since many years ago, wanted to install a new direct setting line in his brick plant and was confident again in Verdés machines and experience.
In Portugal, the Preceram Group, SA; owner of three brick plants (Preceram F1, F2 and Preceram North), equipped with machines Verdés for dry and wet process preparation, wanted to build a factory in order to work with direct setting on kiln car dryer process.
