Laboratory Analysis of Raw Materials
Scientific Centre, using state-of-the-art labware for the purpose of an establishment of suitability of clay raw materials for ceramic wall products manufacture and improvement of finished goods quality, conducts researches of chemical compound, quantity and structure of water-soluble salts, defines processing characteristics of clay raw materials: dispersion, plastic, drying and baking properties. Non-plastics and aerating additives are analyzed for selection of the charging materials quantity. Physical and mechanical indicators of samples are defined, appearance of samples after baking is defined, and finished goods quality is predicted.
Recommendations on Products Diversification
On the basis of laboratory and technological tests of raw materials available for the manufacturer by means of correcting additives selection, including others types of clay, the Center gives recommendations on products diversification: front ceramic bricks having different surface finishes, hollowness characteristics and colors, large-sized aerated bricks, high-strength solid bricks.
Elaboration of Standard Operating Procedures
The Center is engaged in elaboration of standard operating procedures, it selects manufacturing equipment and definition of technological parameters of manufacturing, carries out starting-up and adjustment works, including, those of thermal units, technological process automation systems. Upon completion of starting-up and adjustment works of thermal units, we issue a parameter chart and a document on standard operating procedures. For the automated control system, we issue operating instructions amended in the course of adjustment, and the cards containing coefficients of all control modes.
Recommendations on Production Optimization
The Center elaborates recommendations (projects) on expansion of enterprises, equipment configuration, choice of modes and shift-working arrangements, and diversification of manufactured products.
