New kiln for sanitary ware at Colceràmica - Colombia

Breakage lower than 0.5%: This is only one of the brilliant results obtained

Colceràmica Porcelana Sanitaria belongs to the famous Gruppo Corona created in 1881 and was the first company in Colombia to produce sanitary fittings. Over the years, the company has grown, modernising its technology and in view of a consistent increase in production in the Madrid (Bogotà) plant, it has purchased a new 110 meter tunnel kiln from Sacmi – the long term partner of the Corona Group – for firing sanitary fittings and an almost 15 metre finishing drier. The kiln was started up in October and, in three weeks, approved for maximum productive capacity of almost 4000 parts/day. From the first days, the quality standard of the products coming out of the kiln have been shown to be extremely high. The technical solutions adopted in the firing process of the new kiln have enabled Colceramica to obtain products of a higher standard than the usual one and to limit breakage to 0.3%. This performance has been obtained thanks to even temperature and pressure inside the firing chamber. The combustion system (with burners of a large adjustment range and high flow speed) allows the best ventilation, convective or prevalent radiation heat exchange conditions to be obtained in all areas of the kiln. In the STK 340/110,23 the ergonomic aspects connected to the management of the combustion system in the field are particularly highly regarded so that the work of the kiln operators is made easier. All the cantilever roofs have noise absorption panels to limit noise pollution in the plant and to improve the working environment. The flue gas extraction is controlled automatically by means of a dedicated transducer and self-regulator. In this way, the pressure rate of the kiln is maintained with variations in the atmospheric and operating conditions. Moreover, the differentiated flow rates in the transversal section of the Fast Cooling system improve the evenness of the temperature. It is also an energy saving kiln: in order to reduce fuel consumption, not only is the hot air recovered from the final cooling to be used in the drier, but air is also extracted from the hot air suction stack to be let into the combustion circuit at a high temperature.
