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.
