> Technical characteristics

• Our dryers are drying tunnels equipped with crossways or lengthways air circulation.
They have two or three parallel tracks. The technical heating and ventilation equipment is usually positioned over the tile wagons. We also offer our standard dryers but can easily design and adapt a special drying unit compatible with the client’s installation and factory layout.

• Gaz heating.
No pollution. Fan-assisted gas burners are used for heating purposes. The heat is evenly distributed ensuring even product drying.

• Low consumption
The use of a heat recovery system by condensing the air carried in the flue gases results in an efficiency of 500 Kcal/kg of water. This result allows us to anticipate a bright future given the gas price increases that are more particularly affecting Western countries. The client can also expect a rapid return on his dryer because of its outstanding energy performance

• A compact structure.
The walls and roof of the drying unit ensure sealing, heat insulation and the support structure for the technical facilities. The assembly is self-supporting.

• No need for a building.
The system has been designed for installation out of doors. There is no need to house the drying unit in a building.

• Longevity.
The dryers are entirely constructed of hot galvanized steel and stainless steel for optimum installation longevity and extremely low maintenance.

Handling plaster tile trucks

> Technical characteristics

• Harmonized truck design
The version of the trucks we offer has been designed for use with all of our handling equipment

Automation customized to client requirements.
All this equipment can be used in automatic, semi-automatic or wholly manual mode.

• Truck handling systems.
> The hydraulic pusher : it pushes the trucks into a dryer. The hydraulic control unit is managed by a programmable logic controller that allows the trucks to move gradually through the dryer.
This ensures extremely even drying.

> The friction wheel : this wheel is used to move the truck and position it accurately. Its design means that the space required in the civil works can be limited to a 30 cm deep channel.

> The transfer unit: this unit is used to transfer a truck between tracks. It comprises a friction wheel that allows it to load or unload the trucks. Its compact design means that the civil works required are limited to a 30 cm deep.
