With Sacmi, 70 per cent output boost for Saudi firm Al Fanar

The company looks to the future and renews its confidence in Sacmi technological solutions

A major manufacturing company based in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, the Al Fanar Group recently completed a significant investment in Sacmi-supplied technological and plant engineering solutions, leading to a production increase of no less than 70% if compared to the beginning of 2014.

This order included a pre-crushing and raw material handling system, downstream from which there are two continuous MTC 088 mills and two ATM 110 spray dryers. At the heart of the line there are four PH 3020 presses with an inter-column clearance of 2,250 mm (these join the three already installed by Sacmi) and four 14.12-metre horizontal ECP dryers which join the two existing ECP units.

Completing the picture is the firing department with three kilns (with an effective inlet width of 3150 mm) designed to manage porcelain tiles too. Together, these provide a total firing length of 327.6 metres.

A long-standing partner of Sacmi - which, in 2011, provided the Saudi company with a production line that tripled the existing output - Al Fanar has, with this latest investment decision, moved closer to its goal of becoming a major player in the Saudi ceramic industry and has opened up new market prospects involving the entire Middle East.
