The diagram provides information regarding the production of bricks for the construction field.
Overall, the manufacturing of clay bricks contains eight stages which start from digging of clay to the delivery.
First of all, the clay has been signed out of the land with the help of a digger and put this raw material into a metal grid with a roll where the mud has been powdered and filtered. Next, it has been mixed with sand and water. After this step, the material goes for shaping which is of two-mode, one is by using a wire cutter and the other is using traditional moulds.
In the next stage, the bricks get transferred to a drying oven where the bricks being kept for 24-48 hours. Later proceed into a container with two layers of the kiln where the moderate (200°C-980°C) and high temperatures of 870°C to 1300°C respectively as well as a cooling layer where the product has been kept for 48-72 hours. The final property has shifted for packaging purpose then get delivered to customers.

This diagram demonstrates the process of making bricks that used for the building industry. Overall, it can clearly be seen that, the process of manufacturing industrial bricks consists of 7 steps. Starting by digging the ground and ends by delivery.
To begin, the first step is producing the clay which used to make the bricks by digging the ground using a large digger. Then the clay placed into a metal grid to break up the clay into small pieces, a roller is used to help in this step. After that, the clay is mixed with sand and water, then this mixture is turned into bricks by either putting it into a mould or using a wire cutter.

Following this, the bricks transferred to the drying oven to dry for 24-48 hrs. Subsequently, using a large kin, the bricks exposed to moderate temperature(200-980)then high temperature(200-1300).Next, the bricks are cooled in a cooling chamber for 2-3 days. Finally, the bricks are packed and delivered to their destinations.

Step 1 (Paraphrase the question or re- introduce the topic)
The diagram explains the way in which bricks are made for the building industry.

Step 2 Specific Details 1 (Just look at 4 processes only)
To begin, the clay used to make the bricks is extracted from the ground by a large digger. This clay is then placed onto a metal grid, which is used to break up the clay into smaller pieces. A roller assists in this process. Following this, sand and water is added to the clay, and this mixture is turned into bricks by either placing it into a mould or using a wire cutter. Next, these bricks are kept in an oven to dry for 24 – 48 hours.

Step 3 Specific Details 3 (Take the last three steps)
In the subsequent stage, the bricks go through a heating and cooling process. They are heated in a kiln at a moderate and then a high temperature (ranging from 200c to 1300c), followed by a cooling process in a chamber for 2 – 3 days. Finally, the bricks are packed and delivered to their destinations.

Step 4 (Write an overview)
Overall, there are seven steps in the process, beginning with the digging up of clay and culminating in delivery.

The diagram indicates the method that is utilized in making bricks for building industry.
It is shown here that the process will begin at the site where clay are dug by a digging vehicle. The obtained clay will then undergo a process whereby it is strained, to separate the large pieces from the fine ones. The finer clay will be submitted to a roller where it will be led to either a molding or cutting equipment, through which bricks are created. Once the bricks are made, they will be subjected to for drying in an oven for 24-48 hours. The drying process is of two steps, first is with the use of moderate heat which is 200- 980 degree Celsius, secondly is drying in a 870- 1300 degree Celsius of heat. Once the bricks were dried, they will be locked in a cooling chamber for 48- 72 hours. After two to three days, these materials will be ready and will be prepared for packaging. Finally, the product will be delivered through a lorry to an industrial consumer.

The picture shows the process in producing bricks for the building industry.
Firstly, a digger is used to collect clay from the ground which is then transported to the manufacturing site and placed on a metal grid in a roller machine where it is pulverized further and segregated from soil and other impurities.
Secondly, sand and water is mixed with the clay, after which the mixture is placed in a mould. Next, the molded clay is cut into small bricks using a wire cutter that is passed through each mould.
After this, the cut bricks are processed in a drying oven for 24-48 hours. When the drying period is finished, the bricks are placed in a kiln with varying temperatures from moderate (200-980 degrees) to high (870-1000 degrees) to desiccate the blocks more.
The last step in the process is to cool the cinders where it is placed in a chamber for 48-72 hours. Lastly , the finished products are packed then placed in a truck where it is delivered for use in the construction industry.

the diagram given provide information about how the bricks are made to be used in building industry. at the first sight it can be clearly seen that the process is divided into 7 main phases.
in the first stage , a digger is used to gather the clay from the ground. then , the collected clay is filterized through a grid made from metal. the outcome clay is put on a roller. after that sand and water are added to the clay. the next step is divided into 2 different ways.the clay is cut by a wire cutter or put into a mould and outcome from the 2 stages are the bricks. after the bricks are made , it’s placed in a drying oven or 24 to 48 hours. after the required time finished , the bricks are sent to 2 kilns. the first kiln is with moderate heat(200 to 980 c) and the following kiln is with high heat ( 870 to 1300 c) . at the end of this stage bricks are sent to a cooling chamber for 2 to 3 days. at the end the packaging phase starts. then the bricks are ready to be used in building and it is transferred to the building points by trucks.
all in all, the process is divided into 7 stages (gathering – filtering- cutting- drying-heating-packaging and delivering)

The picture depicts the process by which the paper and pulps are produced.
Overall, it is clear that there are 13 main steps in the process of making paper and pulps, starting from cutting wood and ending with making paper rolls and paper bales.
At the first step of the process, once chopped down, the wood is then chipped. Following to this, it goes through digester and becomes a piece of paper, after which in pull screen the paper is then cleaned up. In the next stage, after going through 4 stages, namely pulp former, pulp driers, pulp reel, and pulp cutter, it turns into paper bales.
When it comes to the production of refined paper for printing, having got rid of some skins, paper is then dried. Subsequently, paper mixed with some water is pressed and paper also is pressed. Final stage of the process is that after drying the paper for some period of time, it then becomes paper roll.

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 .
