New solid-fuel firing facility in the US
BERALMAR is working on construction of solid fuel firing equipment (petroleum coke) for a new BRAMPTON BRICK plant in Farmersburg, Indiana (US).
The new BRAMPTON BRICK plant will have a throughput of 400 tonnes/day, producing face bricks, and will run on natural gas for preheating and petroleum coke for the firing area. The system chosen for BRAMPTON BRICK is the MICROMATIC, which involves storing micronised coke in silos, which is then distributed and injected into the kiln using BERALMAR’s pneumatic system.
Due to shortage of micronised petroleum coke in large quantities in today’s market, BERALMAR will also be fitting a milling unit, comprising a large rotary mill and intermediate storage silo, which will serve to supply micronised coke to the MICROMATIC system.
We appreciate BRAMPTON BRICK’s continued trust in BERALMAR with what will be the third facility of its kind in the US.
