Cleia, the French plant and machinery supplier, recently signed a contract with Almachrek brick co., part of Sahl Group Holding, to build a new brick factory near Tripoli. The new factory is set to produce 800 t hollow bricks per day.
The technological line includes a dry clay preparation and shaping line, a high-tech rapid dryer, a Technofast tunnel kiln as well as automatic handling equipment with robots for setting the bricks on the kiln cars, in a setting pattern measuring 1 200 x 1 200 mm. This new kiln car configuration was specially developed by Cleia to improve the quality and reliability of upgradable brick plants.
Operation of the Almachrek brick factory will be managed by OpenCer, Cleia‘s new PLC control system.
