High-efficiency ventilation in brick and roof tile drying.
Thousands of years have gone by since humans first began using clay as a primary material for the construction of monuments and dwellings. Clay building elements have been widely used ever since the earliest civilizations, and their production techniques have seen slow but steady development over the millennia. What were initially manual systems gradually underwent simple mechanization, eventually leading to full scale automation of production processes.
Drying technology in particular has seen enormous progress. Long gone are the days when bricks and roof tiles were dried naturally in the air and the sun, with all the variability that this entails in terms of environmental conditions. But despite all the progress that has been made, it is important to remember that this is still the most complex stage of the production process and must be monitored very closely to ensure a high-quality finished product.
