The well dimensioned and designed handling equipment ensures an optimal efficiency in the manufacturing line. Machinery is projected by a skilled engineering team, using full 3D software to
draw, calculate and test all solutions. Reliability and easy maintenance are intrinsic characteristics.

The tests provided in our facilities, ensures problem-free machinery, small set-up and startup times. The quality of the brands used, also speaks for us. From cutting lines (and press if it is the case), dryer load, dryer unload kiln car set-up, kiln car loading, kiln car unloading, kiln car cleaning, and palletizing, are only a small description of what we are capable to install.

Handling


Leirimetal design all the layout of the raw-material preparation line, providing the most suitable solutions for the customer’s products. Laboratories analyses of raw-material and geologic mapping of the exploitation land site are key to the success of the project.

We propose always the best reference machinery brands in the market.

Raw material preparation and manufacture


The drying process is one of the most problematic phases in the heavy clay industry.
Preparation, analysis, calculation and tests are mandatory. Each dryer solution is installed only when we have all the guarantees that it will match the customer requirements. Leirimetal doesn’t play with costumers when drying is the subject. Our experience is long. Since Leirimetal foundation we installed dozens of dryers with several types of technology or working principles. Of course, some, of initial principles have been improving, looking for better thermal and electrical efficiency. Drying time also matters. We always find the most suitable option regarding the specificities of each customer. We have not standard solutions. Each one is unique.

OUR DRYER PORTFOLIO HAS, GENERALLY 5 TYPES OF DRYERS

CHAMBER DRYER
Used for projects with different types of products with considerable different densities, requiring different drying times. Dryer cars trays are movable.
Usually used for roof tiles, facing bricks, cladding bricks and accessories.


SEMI/CONTINUOS ROTOMIXER DRYER (TUNNEL)
Suitable for large production projects. Medium and long drying times (>8 hours), allowing to work with raw material with high shrinking index.
Dryer cars trays are movable, or not, depending on the products.
Usually for medium density/high hollow bricks. Also suitable for Roof tiles and facing bricks. Low thermal energy consumption is the most important advantage.


VORTEX DRYER
A revolutionary continuous tunnel dryer with the advantages from both chamber and tunnel dryers. Thermal efficient, with much lower drying times. Suitable for a wide range of red clay typical products.


FAST DRYER LMSRB
Classical rapid dryer. Products are placed on moving trays in circular movement between 2 tunnels. Simple solution with low investment requirement.
Lower thermal efficiency comparing with tunnel or vortex dryers.


INNOVA FAST DRYER (NEW)
New rapid dryer developed by Leirimetal. Lower investment compared with a Fast dryer. Similar efficiency performances.
Low drying times <2h. Suitable for hollow bricks and easy drying process raw materials.
