Upgrading of our Firing Technology

Energy being nearly 40% of our cost, management is continuously focusing on reducing this cost by upgrading our firing technology. Not only do we save on fuel, but assure less greenhouse gas emissions through improved combustion.

Two sets of burners were replaced with state-of -the -art burners from Bernini Impianti – Bologna, Italy. These burners were installed on zones 1 and 2 where we have the most fuel consumption. At a cost of nearly R 900’000.00, these new burners will improve the product yield, decrease our fuel consumption as well as reduce our greenhouse gas emissions significantly.

Algoa Brick is proud to announce that the installation in January 2017 went well and one month later we are realising all these savings as planned.
