EKO is a new single-layer roller kiln equipped with self-recuperative burners. The new machine offers a number of advantages over traditional technology, including fume/product heat exchange management, reduced volume of the extracted fumes conveyed to the filtering area, and the ability to adjust the kiln’s working length according to production volumes.
The kiln consists of a number of thermal modules, called “heat cells,” in which the fumes exchange thermal energy with the material in an optimized manner. Fume exhaust occurs from the cell itself, with part of the residual thermal energy being transferred to the ceramic exchanger located inside the burner that, in turn, reheats the combustion air to 700°C. The exhaust fume average temperature is around 200-250°C. The kiln releases a reduced volume of fumes to the atmosphere, thereby reducing CO2 emissions per product unit.
