New order for a solid fuel firing facility in Hungary ()

BERALMAR has just received a new order for a solid fuel firing facility in Hungary. This is a MICROMATIC facility for the KUNSÁGI TÉGLAIPARI ceramics plant in Kisújszállás, in the eastern part of the country.

The fuel used is micronised petroleum coke, which will arrive at the factory with a maximum particle size of 100 µm and less than 1% moisture and will be stored in a silo for eventual transportation to the firing area and dosification to maintain the current firing curve, all through the pneumatic transport of fuel and centralised and automated control of the entire process.

The MICROMATIC facility will replace at least 80% of current consumption of the kiln’s natural gas and will achieve significant savings in energy bills for the factory, with a clear return on investment of less than one year.

It is hoped that these and other similar facilities will continue to proliferate in Central Europe, given the continued increases in natural gas prices.
