In industrial countries green clay bricks and tiles are dried convectively with hot air produced by burners or other types of artificial energy supply. Drying is therefore associated with a considerable fossil energy requirement. The specific energy requirement for green clay brick and tile drying currently accounts for the highest single item in the total energy required for clay brick and tile production.
2 Explanation of the problem
In the scope of this research work, therefore, the highly innovative modified open-air or low-energy drying is introduced. Prerequisite for this is...
