A Sacmi dry coloring plant for Ceramica Valverde will enable the decoration of up to 14 tons of porcelain tile per hour. This latest system will complement and feed the plant's two PH 2890 and PH 3590 presses (also supplied by Sacmi). The plant has been built according to strict porcelain tile production standards, which, in some cases, require the use of a vast range of colored powders. The core of the system consists of continuously rotating mixers -- a series of paddles feed in the base product and bring it into contact with the inflowing coloring oxides by way of centrifugal pressure. The mixed material is then ready for pressing. This order includes the complete steel structure and the PLC-operated control panel.
