Heat recovery in sanitary-ware industry applied to water and energy saving by multi-effect distillation

Autores: Cuviella-Suárez, C. Sanitary-ware industry, as a sub-sector in the ceramic industry, is a great consumer of energy and water, although there are some opportunities to reduce the global consumption, especially for factories based on resin molds technology. This research aims to show the way to reduce drastically water consumption by recovering waste heat into a multi-effect distillation system to re-use most of the flushing water. This […]

Energy Saving In Ceramic Tile Kilns: Cooling Gas Heat Recovery

Autores: Mezquita, A. Boix, J. Monfort,E. Mallol, G Fuente: Appl. Thermal Eng. , In press doi: 10.1016/ j.applthermaleng.2014.01.002. , 2014 A great quantity of thermal energy is consumed in ceramic tile manufacture, mainly in the firing stage. The most widely used facilities are roller kilns, fuelled by natural gas, in which more than 50% of the energy input is lost through the flue gas and cooling gas exhaust stacks. […]

New systems for installing ceramic tilesNew systems for installing ceramic tiles

Authors: M. llorens, M. Bartolomé, J. Mira, E. Uviedo Source: Tile Today , No.79,p.64-66,68 , 2013 This paper sets out the results of a project whose purpose was to develop dry tile installation methods. The main aim of the systems proposed is to reduce floor and wall tile installation times, avoiding the use of wet adhesives and simplifying the work involved, by means of tile installation systems that do […]

How Does the Innovation System in the Spanish Ceramic Tile Sector Function?¿Cómo funciona el Sistema de Innovación del Sector Cerámico Español?

Authors: GABALDÓN-ESTEVAN,D. HEKKERT, M.P. Source: Bol. Soc. Esp. Ceram. Vidr. , Vol 52, 3, 151-158, Mayo-Junio , 2013 In this article we apply the functions of innovation systems framework to assess its appropriateness to characterise the innovation activity of the tile industry in Castellón. This framework is based on idea that a well functioning innovation system requires that a number of key activities take place. If this occurs innovative […]

Assessing the sustainability of Best Available Techniques: methodology and application in the ceramic tiles industryAssessing the sustainability of Best Available Techniques: methodology and application in the ceramic tiles industry

Authors: Ibanez-Fores, V.; Bovea, M. D.; Azapagic, A. Source: Journal of Cleaner Production , 51 (2013) 162-176 , 2013 This paper presents a methodology for identifying sustainable and most appropriate BAT for a given industrial installation and sector. The methodology involves identification of environmental hot spots from an installation by using life cycle assessment (LCA) to guide the selection of candidate BAT options for targeting the hot spots. The […]

Design of ceramic tiles with high solar reflectance through the development of a functional engobeDesign of ceramic tiles with high solar reflectance through the development of a functional engobe

Authors: Ferrari, C. Libbra, A. Muscio, A. Siligardi,C. Source : Ceram. Int., In Press, Accepted Manuscript , 2013 Roofing solutions with high capacity to reflect incident solar radiation, the so-called cool roofs, can provide an effective answer to summer overheating of either individual buildings or whole urban areas. Nowadays, commercial cool roof products are mainly represented by organic membranes and coatings, but ceramic tiles can offer an interesting […]

Polishing of Porcelain Tiles in Industrial and Laboratory scalePolishing of Porcelain Tiles in Industrial and Laboratory scale

Authors: E. Sanchez, A. Olenburg, F.J.P. Sousa, J.C. Aurich Ceramic Forum International. 03/2013; E 5270(90):E39-43. pp.E39-43 Abstract: This work reports the design and use of a laboratory-scale tribometer and a new developed tool-holder to reproduce the industrial polishing process for ceramic tiles in laboratory~scale. The mechanical conditions in a typical industrial polishing process were used to execute the tests in industrial-scale on a single polishing head […]

Procedure for the production and use of porcelain stoneware tiles with anti-bacterial activityProcedure for the production and use of porcelain stoneware tiles with anti-bacterial activity

Fuente: INNOGET Tech Offer ID : O-831 Description of the technology offer A group of researchers from a Portuguese university has developed a process to obtain porcelain stoneware tiles with anti-bacterial activity, namely, that promotes the bacteria’s death while all the other required technological characteristics, particularly the chemical resistance and anti-staining properties, are assured. In comparison with the existing solutions the two advantages of this process are: […]

Quality control engineering in automated ceramic tile production using a signal information content approachQuality control engineering in automated ceramic tile production using a signal information content approach

Authors: Jovic, F; Jovic, A; Krmpotic, D Source: ADVANCED ENGINEERING INFORMATICS , 27 (1), 93-107 , 2013 The pressing process in the automated production of ceramic tiles is a complicated process that involves fully functional machinery and efficient coordination of the working crew. Quality control (QC) of the process relies on reasoning and acting on information coming from measured signals on the automated machinery. For QC, it is necessary […]
