Duravit Tunisia puts its trust in Sacmi

Flexible and high-performance with cost-cutting consumption levels

Almost 190 years in the ceramic business: this is Duravit, founded in 1817 in Germany, now present in over 90 different countries and the owner of eight modern production plants. One of them, Duravit Tunisia, previously known as Manufacture Tunisienne des Ceramiques, was purchased by Duravit (as majority holding) in 2008.

A specialist sanitaryware producer, Duravit Tunisia, based in Bizerte, can now count on new cutting-edge Sacmi machine, installed between 2008 and early 2009. This is a shuttle kiln with a massive 95 cubic metre capacity, a HWS 13.5/500/140 with “Firelane” burners, with two lifting doors and ceramic fibre lining.

Effective kiln width is 5 metres and there is double-deck loading. Note that the machine supplied to Duravit Tunisia is suitable for first- and re-firing application. With firing cycles lasting 12-24 hours, the machine can manage some 675 pieces per cycle and can even fire different product types simultaneously (Vitreous China , Fine Fire Clay, Coarse Fire Clay).

Another key competitiveness factor on which Duravit Tunisia can count thanks to Sacmi is the extremely low energy consumption of the new kiln. Moreover, the machine was designed by Sacmi/Riedhammer to minimise in-atmosphere carbon dioxide emissions, in keeping with the Group’s strict energy efficiency and consumption reduction policies while increasing quality and production performance.
