Three Condor dryers installed in Turkey
In 2016 Capaccioli revolutionized the drying process, launching the new ultrafast Condor dryer on the market. This enables a drastic short-ening of the drying cycle and reduction in the costs with improved product quality. With the new dryer, the company has set another new standard in innovation, something that has distinguished Capaccioli for the past 60 years. In 2016, the company successfully installed three Condor dryers each for 750 t/day hollow blocks and load-bearing blocks in Turkey. Other Condor units are already under construction in other countries. The completely new design, with innovative, original technical solutions, have allowed extraordinary results: ultrafast drying cycle, high product quality and specific energy consumption of just 8 to 10 kWh/t.
