Vincenzo D'Introno, who for years has been on the ceramic market with Ceramica Base, recently placed a substantial order for a new, highly innovative Sacmi plant that will become Ceramica San Nicola. The new plant will constitute an important supply source of spray-dried powders for various types of output. The plant will be equipped with a continuous 70,000-litre mill; another mill of the same size will be used by the San Nicola ceramic plant to produce porcelain tiles. The plant will also be equipped with discontinuous mills and all the other machinery needed to produce colored powders. There will also be four PH 3590 presses, each equipped with double-action filler boxes. As these are easily interchangeable, the plant will be able to produce full body and/or glazed tiles. The four presses will channel the tiles into four EVA 992 dryers, and they will subsequently be fired in two FMS250/88.2 m porcelain tile kilns. The plant is expected to become operative at the end of 2002, with an initial porcelain tile output capacity of 12,000 m2/day.
