PLANTS FOR PORCELAIN STONEWARE MANUFACTURING

The raw materials preparation process DRY-TECH Porcelain is the technological solution of Manfredini & Schianchi to the growing demand of dramatically cutting down processing costs with same quality standards in the manufacturing of PORCELAIN STONEWARE.

A painstaking research is conducted on customers’ raw materials and Manfredini & Schianchi thanks to its skilled technical team, labs and pilot plant, develops the ideal body composition to perform through its DRY-TECH process, a seamless and consistently repeatable ceramic endproduct.

The fundamental advantages of DRY-TECH PLANTS FOR PORCELAIN STONEWARE are as follows

  • Very strong reduction of thermal and electrical consumption levels
  • Utilisation of cheaper raw materials normally set apart in the traditional system due to viscosity issues
  • Absence of deflocculants
  • Smaller space needed by the plant
  • High automation
  • Consistency of the endproduct
  • Overhaul procedures definitely lowered compared with the traditional plant
  • Almost total elimination of water consumption and emissions of environment harmful exhaust fumes

The DRY-TECH Porcelain process of Manfredini & Schianchi is already the most worldwide spread alternative system in raw materials processing stage with more than 850,000,000 m2/year of floor and wall tiles manufactured by its customers in several kinds.

The evolution into DRY-TECH Porcelain enables dry preparation technology to benefit any production and the relevant ceramic results are fully complying with running UNI rules
