New MICROMATIC system for CERÁMICA RIOBOO
The CERÁMICA RIOBOO brickworks of Pravio (A Coruña) is the last -but not least- brickyard opting for solid fuels in Spain.
This Galician producer of hollow bricks will count in the next weeks with a solid fuel firing system model MICROMATIC that will use petroleum coke as the main fuel in the kiln, for an output of approximately 250 tm/day. The fuel used in the preheating zone will be natural gas.
BERALMAR has already supplied more than 200 solid fuel (petcoke, coals, etc.) firing systems over the last quarter of century, the half of which have been installed in the last 8 years alone.
Such boom in the use of solid fuels is not just explained by the price increases of gas and heavy oil, but also by the existance of adequate technologies for their consumption, which are constantly updated.
