90 years full at Goerg & Schneider

New chamotte tunnel kiln commissioned

Goerg & Schneider, located in Siershahn/Westerwald, one of the leaders in the extraction and preparation of clays, chamottes and ceramic bodies, has commissioned a new chamotte tunnel kiln at the plant just in time for the company‘s 90th founding anniversary.

That makes this multi-stage investment project “Optimization of the production process and of chamotte firing technology” the biggest investment the company ever launched. In addition to the continued production of conventional raw chamotte for structural ceramic bodies, the new kiln enables firing at temperatures up to 1350° C and, hence, the production of high-sintered silicate products.
