Sanimed grows in quality and quantity with the Sacmi Group

New Riedhammer tunnel kiln now up and running at full capacity

Sanimed, a Tunisian company belonging to the Abdennadher Group, has been manufacturing and marketing ceramic sanitaryware since 1998. It is currently expanding fast on North African and European markets and has recently made a giant leap forwards thanks to its partnership with the Sacmi Group.

At their Sfax plant a 90-metre Riedhammer TWS 90/300/100-G tunnel kiln – equipped with a pre-kiln DWS 9/300/100 W dryer – has, in fact, just been tested successfully.
This kiln, a popular model employed extensively on the market, can boost plant productivity and performance considerably. Thanks to advanced combustion technology, it’s particularly recommended for reducing fuel consumption.
With a 22-hour firing cycle at a maximum working temperature of 1250° C, the tunnel kiln ensures an output of 1,570 pieces a day and a specific consumption of less than 900 kCal/kg.

On the quality and flexibility front, the Riedhammer kiln is outstandingly efficient in the first firing of a body mix that is of considerable complexity in terms of shape and size: the kiln load (average weight 30 kg) consists of a Vitreous China bathroom set made up of large Fine Fire-Clay pieces such as counter washbasins, kitchen sinks and shower trays, the 90 x 90 cm size of which explains the 1 metre high kiln inlet.

With the new tunnel kiln, Sanimed has now pushed its output capacity well beyond 1 million pieces a year.
