Q: How to make red bricks?

The production process of sintered bricks is generally composed of four parts: raw material preparation, blank body forming, wet blank drying, and finished product firing.After raw materials are excavated, some can be processed by adding water, stirring and grinding equipment,while others will not work.Raw materials,such as mountain soil, coal gangue and shale,are to be broken and finely chopped, then followed by water mixing and grinding.The choice and preparation of raw materials directly affect the quality of the finished product.As the saying goes, raw materials are fundamental to making sintered bricks,showing the importance of the raw materials preparation and raw materials.

After the selected brick raw materials are processed, they enter the molding workshop for molding.Blank forming method basically uses plastic extrusion molding in China.There are three methods for plastic extrusion. That is plastic extrusion molding,semi-hard plastic extrusion molding and hard plastic extrusion molding.

These three extrusion methods are based on the difference in the moisture content of the molding.When the moisture content more than 16%,wet billet molding is plastic extrusion molding. When the moisture content equals 14-16%, it’s semi-hard plastic extrusion molding. When the moisture content equals 12-14% ,it’s hard plastic extrusion molding.Blank forming includes: feeding material , mixing,adding water and grinding equipment processing before raw materials entering the molding shop not brick extruding machine.After passing through the molding brick machine, the qualified mud and wet billet are formed.Forming process should fulfill the requirement of the shape and structure.Forming is the foundation of the brick making process.The quality of the formed body is directly related to the appearance quality of the finished tile.

After the wet billets formed from the molding plant, they need to be dried by dehydration.In the production process of sintered bricks, there are two ways of drying wet blank: natural drying and artificial drying.

The natural drying is to place the wet billet on the billet stalk in the natural drying place,manually invert the code and use the atmosphere to wet the cold billet into a dry billet.Artificial drying is to use equipped artificial drying chamber to dry wet billet.The artificial drying room is divided into three types: large-section tunnel drying room, small-section tunnel drying room and chamber drying room.Whichever type is adopted, it is manually or mechanically placing wet billet on a drying truck,then put it into drying chamber.The heat medium in the drying chamber generally comes from the waste heat of the sintering kiln or the hot blast stove.Whichever drying method is adopted, it must be ensured that the blank will not be deformed or chapped during the drying process.If the wet billet can’t guarantee the appearance quality of the product during drying, it will cause high reject rate, falling output,increasing cost of the finished brick, which are definitely harmful to company economic efficiency.This shows the importance of drying wet billet in brick making process.

If the residual moisture rate after drying is less than 6%,the wet billet could be fired in the baking kiln.Hoffman kiln and tunnel kiln are normally used for roasting.When using Hoffman kiln, the brick code is manually placed in the kiln and the fire is roasted in the kiln.When using tunnel kiln,the brick code is manually or mechanically placed in the kiln cart.The kiln car enters kiln head and exits from the kiln tail. The brick blanks on the kiln car are roasted into bricks.The roasting flame in the kiln doesn’t move just the kiln cart.Whether using Hoffman kiln or tunnel kiln,this two conditions must be followed:1.never use underfire to produce unburnt brick.2.never use big fire to produce coke brick.It is often said that roasting is the key of the brick making process,which explains the importance of roasting in the brick making process.

Sintered brick process is composed of four parts.To sum up,it is said that the raw material is fundamental,molding is the basis,drying is ensure and roasting is the key. These four parts are interdependent.

  Q: How to make bricks from clay ?

A brick is building material used to make walls, pavements and other elements in masonry construction. Traditionally, the term brick referred to a unit composed of clay, but it is now used to denote any rectangular units laid in mortar. A brick can be composed of clay-bearing soil, sand, and lime, or concrete materials. Bricks are produced in numerous classes, types, materials, and sizes which vary with region and time period, and are produced in bulk quantities. Two basic categories of bricks are fired and non-fired bricks.

Block is a similar term referring to a rectangular building unit composed of similar materials, but is usually larger than a brick. Lightweight bricks (also called lightweight blocks) are made from expanded clay aggregate.

Fired bricks are one of the longest-lasting and strongest building materials, sometimes referred to as artificial stone, and have been used since circa 5000 BC. Air-dried bricks, also known as mudbricks, have a history older than fired bricks, and have an additional ingredient of a mechanical binder such as straw.

Bricks are laid in courses and numerous patterns known as bonds, collectively known as brickwork, and may be laid in various kinds of mortar to hold the bricks together to make a durable structure


  Q: How to open a clay brick factory?

Basic elements:

1. raw materials   2.water   3.electricity   4 land   5.fund

Step 1: Investigate the market and confirm the demand

To determine new plant production scale should refer to the local market conditions.First of all, we shall thoroughly investigate local brick and tile market conditions and grasp following situation:current market demand,actual production volume of existing companies, how big the market gap is,current selling price of brick and tile products and the demand and price trend.Besides,is there the same new brick factory to be built?What is the production scale?After mastering above conditions, the new plant can be determined.

Step 2: Confirm brick type

Formulate product production plan according to the condition of raw materials.When you build a new factory, you must have a clear understanding of the local production materials.After determining the dosing plan and selecting raw materials, we must determine the production plan and scale according to local market conditions. It is suitable for hollow brick or hole brick?Whether annual production scale should be 50 million or 80 million?

Step 3: Confirm the production process and equipment

Selected production process and equipment according to raw materials.Clarify your raw material properties before starting new plant.Please have experienced technical staff to plan the production route and conduct selection or design production equipment.Not all equipment can adapt to your raw materials.

Step 4: Infrastructure construction

After determining production scale, it is possible to determine area, process direction, equipment layout of production plant and the location of living area according to the size of production volume.Plan plant elevation based on local geological, hydrological and meteorological conditions.]Arrange various production workshops according to the wind direction.To determine the mode of production, shall it be labor-intensive companies or technology-intensive enterprises,requires whole careful plan and design by technicians based on the results of technical and economic analysis.

1. Civil work: including Chenhuachi, workshops, doors, windows, and roofs of aging workshop.Meet installation requirements of reversible spreaders, multi-bucket excavators and conveyor belts.At the same time, water supply and drainage and heating are completed.

2. Aging workshop:The crushing workshop completes all civil construction tasks inside and outside the crushing room and feeding room.Complete the plant closure work.Meet installation requirements of feeder boxes, belts, crushers, vibrating screens, back-feed belts, and aging conveyor belts etc.

3. Molding workshop:including the feeding box, mixer, clay machine, extruder, cutting and transportation construction, as well as the kiln base after pouring belt,top car machine, tractor, kiln channel pavement, cushion and other construction.

4. The civil construction scope for air compressor stations, plumbing, substations, fire pump rooms, etc. includes drying kiln, roasting kiln, ferry car,hydraulic pusher,return tractor,traction machine, winch, tidal fan, blower, kiln cooling fan,pipeline , heat exchanger,kiln car production, track and so on.

Step 5:Preparation before production

1. organization construction

2. Make plans and regulations

3. Maintain and add equipment
