AFTER KIEVBUILD 2009
As already reported, BERALMAR took part last February in the KIEVBUILD 2009 fair in Kiev (Ukraine).
The Ukraine is not exempt from the global financial crisis and its construction activity is also suffering the consequences.
Despite this, the fair was very useful for BERALMAR, not just because of the contacts made, but also because it revealed the specific needs of the Ukrainian ceramics industry as well as helping to identify opportunities for BERALMAR’s wide range of equipment.
New test kiln
BERALMAR has completed the construction of an intermittent test kiln at its facility in Terrassa.
This facility, built entirely with proprietary technology, will be used to improve the conditions in which the quality tests for gas burners are performed, as well as for boosting the development of new prototypes before they are tested in tunnel kilns.
Despite the size of the facility (4,050 x 2,560 x 2,600), the test kiln has 31 orifices for fitting jets and up to 14 viewing holes for a comprehensive view of the combustion process.
