Sanimed Grows with New Tunnel Kiln

Sanimed, a Tunisian company belong­ ing to the Abdennadher Group, has been manufacturing and marketing ceramic sani­taryware since 1998.

It is currently expand­ing fast on North African and European markets and has recently made a giant leap forwards thanks to its partnership with the Sacmi Group/IT. At their Sfax plant a 9 0­m tunnel kiln type TWS 90/300/100­G equipped with a pre­-kiln DWS 9/300/100 W dryer, both supplied by the German company Riedhammer, has been tested successfully. This kiln, a popular model employed extensively on the market, can boost plant productivity and perform­ance considerably. Thanks to advanced combustion technology, it’s particularly recommended for reducing fuel consump­tion. With a 22­ h firing cycle at a maximum fir­ing temperature of 1250 °C, the tunnel kiln ensures a daily output of 1570 pieces and a specific consumption of <900 kcal/kg. The kiln is very efficient regarding first firing of products complex in terms of shape and size such as counter washbasins, kitchen sinks and shower trays – the 90 cm x 90 cm size of which explains the 1 m high kiln inlet. The average weight of products referring to one tunnel kiln car is 30 kg.With the new tunnel kiln, Sanimed has pushed its yearly output capacity well be­yond 1 million pieces.
