The kiln, of traditional type, has been realized by applying the most innovative technical developments.

Considering the structural features, the kiln has been realized with self bearing walls which allow a reduction of execution times.

Due to clay characteristics, materials used for the construction are anti-acid type.

A recycling system of great extension  was supplied in the pre-heating area, in the cooling area we have supplied a rapid cooling system with air injection and recovery of hot air at high temperature. Capaccioli has  given great importance to the refractory material of the kiln cars, considering the firing cycle which is below 20 hours.

We have also foreseen a sophisticated supervision system with PC and PLC and inverters for the counter pressure control.

The above mentioned software was also developed for kiln n. 1 in Jeddah site, in order to obtain a good modernization of the kiln.
