The ceramics industry can be challenging in regards to process control to complete the specific manufacturing method correctly.
Many ceramic products require heating throughout to remove moisture without over drying the external surfaces trapping moisture inside. Over curing of the external surfaces causes the product to fracture when moisture is heated for removal and the steam created cannot escape. Proper drying often requires low temperature combined with high airflow and humidity control to complete the process. This procedure correctly prevents the product from fracturing. Other ceramic type products and processes are more forgiving and can be processed utilizing different design technology without damaging the product.
Davron can provide equipment to meet your manufacturing challenge in either case. We have experience with a wide range of engineered solutions for the ceramics industry. These products include, but are not limited to, molded ceramic fiber products with slurry for a binder, molded plaster products, and extruded ceramic products. We also manufacture equipment used for various post cure processes for ceramics that are already fully cured.
The systems are most commonly heated with natural gas fired burner systems but can also be electrically heated. Humidity controls can be included if required, as well as exhaust systems to remove large volumes of moisture in a controlled manner during manufacturing. The equipment used for these processes range from highly technical conveyor oven systems to batch ovens specifically designed to meet your unique manufacturing requirements.
Our equipment is uniquely designed to meet the specific process requirements of your industry to provide a solution for your manufacturing challenges. Contact Davron to discuss your application and review a sample of Ceramic Projects completed in the past.
