SARL BGO TOUGGOURT, ALGERIA
It is rather known that SABO S.A. is a company that manages to find solutions for almost every kind of demand. All our factories are built to order.
The same case is our new factory BGO, which started production of the first phase of the project on October 2016. The client Mr Sadoudi Laid trusted SABO S.A. for a special and demanding technical solution. The client asked us to make a layout that would include not only one but two production lines, each one of 800 tons/day of fired bricks, in a rather limited space. The project would be completed in two phases, with a common clay preparation of 1600 tons/day.
A rapid dryer of 64 balancelles, 6m wide and 1,1m long, was used to assure the contracted production. The dryer is almost identical with the same type of dryers already built in other factories by SABO S.A., but with some rather small but important improvements resulting in a better flow of the air and control of the process.
The setting machine which was used was redesigned to be able to be used in a smaller space but always using robots which have been proven to be a problem free solution in all the factories that have been used until now.
The kiln car used is a 6,8m wide and 4,2m long with 18 1,8m high packets. To be able to achieve the contractual production capacity, we have a pushing time of about 12 minutes for the B08 and just under 10 minutes for the B12. It is more than 150m long to ensure inadequate time for the bricks to stay on the firing zone.
A redesigned system of recuperation of energy, not only from the actual tunnel of the kiln but also from under the kiln cars and the kiln’s ceiling. This ensures a better energy consumption which result in better economy for the client.
The area of packaging line also redesigned to be able to fit three packaging lines with two of them creating packets with strapping and holes for a forklift to handle, but also a third one that would allow the client to sell his products piece par piece for smaller trucks.
After the first month in production, the project gave a rather satisfying result achieving almost 70% of the contractual capacity, working only 2 of the 3 posts/day that it was supposed to work.
Another success project for SABO S.A., another satisfied customer.
