Leading Iranian brick manufacturer goes for Sacmi Heavy Clay

New line for Azarakhsh International for the manufacture of 140,000 strip bricks a day.

With almost 100,000 tons per year of output sold on both internal and foreign markets, Iranian firm Azarakhsh International Refractory Brick Manufacturer Group is the main player in the area’s brick and construction material sector. Already well known and appreciated for its low-absorption, high strength bricks – such as pavers and face bricks – Azarakhsh has asked Sacmi Heavy Clay to supply a new, complete line for the manufacture of strip bricks to be installed in its manufacturing facility in the town of Qom, Iran.

The new line – to be installed in the new building near the old factory – has been designed for a routine output of 140,000 pieces per day (85 tons) yet can cope with production peaks of up to 100 tons per day. The ‘stars’ of this order are, above all, the two PH 690 D hydraulic presses, specially configured for the production of such product types. Then, downstream, there is the 5-level ECP 235/11.3 roller dryer with an effective intake width of 2350 mm and a length of 11.3 metres.

Completing the order are the single-channel roller kiln (a FMS 223/136.5 model 136.5 metres long with an effective load width of 2350 mm) and the Synthesis sorting and packaging line with the Extrapack Robot. More specifically, the kiln has been designed and equipped to fire heavy materials at high temperature – up to 1250 °C – and features a flashing system to obtain a reducing atmosphere in the final firing zone of the kiln.

This order equips Azarakhsh to extend its vast product range, already widely appreciated on the internal and external market. For Sacmi, which has operated in the area through its Sacmi Iran branch for years, this is a new customer of considerable size in an area that is strategic in terms of growth and development potential, especially in the construction and infrastructure sector. Thanks to recent changes on the international scene, the total growth of exports from Italy to the area can be estimated at no less than 3 billion euros over the next 4 years (source: Sace – Cassa Depositi e Prestiti).
