Commissioning of a new plant in Malaysia ()

BERALMAR has just commissioned a new plant in Malaysia. It is a new production line for KILANG BATU BATA HAP KEE (Serandah, Malaysia) for which BERALMAR has supplied a dryer and a tunnel kiln for a production of 750 tonnes/day of solid bricks.

The new facility, which in the first phase has a production of 480 tonnes/day, is made up of a LLEVANT direct kiln car setting dryer and a PRESTHERMIC airtight tunnel kiln. Both the tunnel kiln and the two drying tunnels are 168 metres long with an internal width of 6.3 metres.

It is important to note that the only thermal energy consumed in the factory is petcoke, using a MICROMATIC system. The LLEVANT dryer, thanks to a comfortable drying cycle of more than 50 hours for all formats, is fed only hot air recovered from the kiln.

As usual in this type of factory, the commissioning has been very simple and all the material in the first kiln car out of the kiln has been of the highest quality: from the kiln car to the lorry.

Although the new HAP KEE plant will currently produce only solid formats, its senior management plans to introduce thermoblock formats to Malaysia soon. We wish them the best of luck in this project which is so important for the future of the Malaysian company.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Ng family for their continued trust in BERALMAR.
