Eczacıbaşı chooses another Riedhammer sanitaryware firing solution

Sacmi supplies key order to the Vitra plant

Turkish group Eczacıbaşı - which leads the European and Middle Eastern sanitaryware markets thanks to group company Vitra which has an output capacity of over 5 million pieces per year – has confirmed that it will be firing its sanitaryware with Riedhammer technology.

An HWS 6/500/210-G PF shuttle kiln is, in fact, already up and running at the plant in Bozüyük. This kiln - built by Riedhammer, the Sacmi Group’s German subsidiary - has an effective volume of 63 m3 and an output capacity of about 400 complex WCs per cycle.

Vitra made this key investment decision because, first and foremost, products fired/re-fired in this Riedhammer kiln are of optimal quality, a result achieved thanks to a temperature uniformity that is exceptional for a kiln with an effective height of 2.1 m.
Another key factor in the decision was the low specific gas consumption, just 1,400 kCal/kg of product, a figure usually associated with tunnel kilns rather than shuttle kilns.
These results have been accomplished thanks to the outstanding design principles of Riedhammer Pulse Firing shuttle kilns, which allow optimal heat distribution throughout the kiln chamber.

The partnership between Eczacıbaşı and Sacmi, then, just keeps going from strength to strength, providing ever-better product quality, higher energy savings and more sustainable development.
