Condor ultra-fast dryer “flies” to Peru

Capaccioli, the Italian plant supplier, has signed a contract for the supply of a Condor ultra-fast dryer with the important Peruvian company Arcimax Inversiones Nueva Ceramica.

The installation of the Condor dryer into the existing line will ensure that all product types manufactured by Arcimax (including the famous King Kong brick) can be dried automatically in drying times between 45 minutes and 2 hours and 15 minutes maximum.

The production capacity of the plant will reach 700 t/day while energy consumption will be halved at the same time.

The line will be installed in the Carabayllo plant, Lima, the first supplies being delivered already at the end of March. Commissioning of the entire plant is scheduled for August 2018.

With this installation, Arcimax will be equipped with leading-edge technology. For Capaccioli, this contract is an important reference project for South America, with which it is again reaffirming its role as an innovative company in a traditional industry.
