  • News and Accomplishments

BERALMAR has received an order for a MICROMATIC solid fuel firing system for a kiln for firing refractory pieces for TATA REFRACTORIES LTD. in Belpahar (India), which is part of one of the most important business groups in the world: The TATA group. Its subsidiary TATA REFRACTORIES LTD. is also the leading manufacturer of refractories in India.

What stands out about this order is the firing temperature of the kiln where the MICROMATIC system will be installed, which reaches up to around 1650 °C. Another noteworthy feature of the facility will be the lateral injection of fuel, which will be petroleum coke.

This will be the second BERALMAR solid fuel firing installation in India, after the Wienerberger-Kunigal factory in Bangalore.


Example of BERALMAR grinding plant

LADRILLERÍA SANTA FÉ, the largest ceramic group in Colombia, has ordered four kilns from BERALMAR for their solid fuel firing facilities.

The system chosen by LADRILLERÍA SANTA FE is the most sophisticated for the use of solid fuels. The grinding plant is supplied with moist and ground mineral coal, and the process ends with the coal dry and micronized, up to 100 microns in diameter, <1% moisture, stored in a dry environment silo. This silo then feeds an entire MICROMATIC facility, according to its fuel needs. The entire system is controlled from a single location.

BERALMAR has previously provided this type of solution (Grinding + MICROMATIC) to ceramic plants in Chile, the United States, Morocco and India. | Change language | Unsubscribe | Disclaimer
