  • The diagram below shows how processing works would be used to manufacture bricks for build industry.
    The first step is involved by a digger which cach the clay for putting above a metal grid, over a huge roller, after that a mixing of clay with a certain quantity of sand and a good amount of water make something that will be pass trough a wire cutter and than after this passage, any catted pieces was putted into a mould that give this a particular kind of shape.
    After that many pieces of these must be moved inside a dring oven for 24/ 48 hours at a variable temperature, firstly at a moderate temperature between 200° and 980°, secondly after this first step the temperature goes high until reach a minimum valu of 870° and without overweith 1300°. Finally this big block will be moved inside a cooling chamber for 48/72 hours and then will be packaged and delivery starting.

  • THE ABOVE DIAGRAM REPRESENTS THE PROCESS THAT IS USED TO MANUFACTURE BRICKS FOR BUILDING INDUSTRY.THERE ARE VARIOUS STEPS INVOLVED IN IT FIRSTLY IT STARTS WITH CLAY WHICH IS COLLECTED WITH THE HELP OF THE DIGGER .WITH THE HELP OF METAL GRID THE CLAY IS FLITTERED BY USING ROLLERS .FURTHER IT IS PROCESSED BY ADDING SOME AMOUNT OF SAND AND WATER INTO IT .NOW WE HAVE TWO METHODS TO SHAPE UP THE BRICK THAT IS EITHER WE CAN USE A RECTANGULAR MOULD WITH PROPER DIMENSIONS OR WITH THE HELP OF THE WIRE CUTTER BRICKS CAN BE CUT INDIVIDUALLY INTO A PROPER SHAPE . NOW THE BRICKS FORMED ARE KEPT IN OVEN FOR ABOUT 24-48 HOURS TO GIVE SOME SORT OF HEATING SENSATIONS .FROM OVEN THE BRICKS ARE SHIFTED TO KLIN WHERE THE BURNING PROCESS TAKES PLACE FIRSTLY AT MODERATE TEMPRATURE AND AFTER SOME TIME THE TEMPRATURE IS INCREASED SLIGHTLY . FROM KILN THE BRICKS ARE SHIFTED INTO A COOLING CHAMBER FOR ABOUT 2-3 DAYS TO GIVE SOME COOLING EFFECT. AND THE PROCESS ENDS UP WITH A LAST STEP THAT IS PACKAGING, AND ALL SET READY TO DELIVER IT TO CUSTOMERS ACROSS INDIA .

  • Firstly the earth is dug out using the digger.This earth is loaded on to a conveyor belt made of metal where in only the sand particals are filtered out to be mixed with the right quantity of water.Next, the mixture is either passed through a mould where a wire is used to cut the continuous mixture at certain intervals where it takes the form of bricks or the mixture is poured into moulds to take the desired shape. These bricks or the moulds are then loaded into a drying oven for a duration of 1 to 2 days.After this process they are moved into a brick Kiln where in the bricks undergo a gradual cooking starting temperatures from 200 degree Celsius to high as 1300 degree Celsius. They are then shifted into a cooling chamber where in they undergo a gradual cooling which can last up to 3 days.These bricks are then ready for packaging and ready for delivery to various customers all across India.

  • The presented infographic reveals the chain method, which is applied to manufacture brick for the industry construction.

    The process starts with digger digging for the clay as the main raw materials for brick. Thenafter, a metal grinder will be used to grind the clay and the clay will be rolled in a roller and mixed withe sand and water on the clay. Now, for shaping the brick there will involve two substitute method, either using a wire cutter or using a mould.

    Further, the well shaped bricks will be kept on a drying oven for 24 to 48 hours before moving them to kiln under the moderate temperature. Likewise, from moderate kiln, the bricks will be shifted to high and cooling temperature respectively. And, finally the brick will be ready for use and will be caked and forwarded for delivery.

    Overall, manufacturing brick is a five step process before it’s final outcome

  • the picture shows the procedure of producing bricks for purpose of constructing buildings.

    according to the diagram ,first of all clay collected from the ground using a digger.then collected clay send thru a metal grind and a roller to make into small pieces.next water and sand are added to the piece of metal and mix up well.after that this mixture turn into the bricks via wire cutter or mould..Following on from this ,before burning these bricks store in a drying oven for one to two days.at the last stage dried bricks are restored in a kiln and let it burn at moderate temperature (200-980),high temperature (870-1300) and once it burned keep it in a cooling chamber for two ,three days before packaging.finally these ready to use bricks are packed and delivered to the destination where it required..
