Using KSE-400 (Germany)
Equipment supplier offers trainings for the buyer’s staff
Can produce 30 million bricks per year including high quality hollow façade bricks, ordinary bricks, molded bricks, white and colored bricks
Production of lime-sand bricks is considerably more energy efficient than the production of ceramic bricks. Moreover, the project envisions the reconstruction of one of the two pit-type 50-ton lime-burning kilns; using coal, automatic blending, loading, and burning will save on gas
Plant produces its own lime; a sand-pit is located close to the plant
