Creaton-Etex goes for Made in Sacmi rapid drying

Two roller driers installed at production plant in Poland

Creaton-Etex, a specialist manufacturer of construction materials, recently chose Sacmi to provide the entire drying section (both roof tiles and fittings) of its plant in Koscian, Poland: from driers to automation, from the RAT (the tile collection conveyor under the presses) to unloading of dried roof tiles. A major investment, then, for a production facility that manufactures 30 million roof tiles and 2.4 million fittings a year.

More specifically, in the roof tile department two Made-in-Sacmi roller driers have been installed, each 78.9 m long and 3810 mm wide, with a total of 6 channels and a maximum drying temperature of 120°. The result: a drying process completed in just over 3 hours, residual moisture contents of below 2% and outstanding output flexibility (the dryer can also handle any interruptions in material feed).

Thanks to high-efficiency heat recovery systems, the rapid drying solution chosen by Creaton-Etex also contains consumption, comparable to that of a traditional tunnel dryer. The advantages of this solution include lower investment costs, optimised use of available space, fast identification of any defects, brief installation times (the machine is completely prefabricated) and – last but not least – new drier design characteristics that allow it to be set down without having to carry out costly foundation work.

Sacmi has also supplied drying systems for the fittings section: this department, fully automatic (including the moveable tray section) uses 5 high-volume drying chambers (5630 high, 3400 wide) and 4 low-volume drying chambers for small lots.
