Duravit Ceramics, third Riedhammer kiln supplied to Egyptian plant

New shuttle kiln, which joins existing sanitaryware firing/re-firing machines, successfully tested.

The installation of a third Riedhammer shuttle kiln at the firm's Egyptian factory underlines the strength of the successful partnership between the Sacmi Group and Ceramica Duravit, the world-leading manufacturer of high quality, beautifully designed sanitaryware. This recently tested Riedhammer SSK 440/198-8 has been installed alongside existing sanitaryware firing/re-firing kilns.

Equipped with 8 modules having effective internal dimensions of 15 x 4.4 x 2 metres, the kiln has a cordierite/mullite refractory lining, a feature that avoids the maintenance on exposed fibres that can sometimes lead to product defects. Moreover, it’s equipped with a rapid cooling system that ensures the entire first firing cycle is completed within 14 hours.

Following its purchase of the first machines back in 2005, Duravit has, then, once again gone for Sacmi-Riedhammer technology, a decision brought about by the extreme flexibility, reliability and usability of these solutions. In fact, the company is already planning to install a fourth shuttle kiln in Egypt, now the most important overseas market for this outstanding German sanitaryware player.
