History and advantages
Already on its launch in 1972, the Casing kiln offered a number of advantages contributing to its success. These include its
› optimum tightness ensured by its welded structure
› reproducible setting (pressurized/depressurized firing)
› modularity and
› speed of construction
Many years have gone by since the first kiln was delivered to Apt brickworks in France’s Vaucluse Department in 1972. Technological advances have contributed to making the Casing kiln an ever vital high-tech item of equipment for the industry even 40 years after its invention.
