The Fiorano, Italy-based Ceramica Savoia plant recently started up an 84-m Sacmi RKK two-channel roller kiln. Able to produce about 9000 m2/day of glazed porcelain tile, the RKK features an energy recovery system that withdraws air at 120°C from the hot air chimney and feeds it back into the burners at 110°C, thus providing considerable fuel savings and reducing environmental impact.

Sacmi has equipped this section of the kiln with heat diffuser tubes, which exchange heat with the product indirectly. Kiln performance has also been improved by splitting the hot air intake piping at the cooling stage.

Savoia chose a configuration where the kiln supervision system has two PCs; these carry out process controls and data management separately.
