MANUFACTURING PROCESSRaw Material Clot Mill House Roasting Grinding Conveyor Belt Storage VesselPacking & Dispatch
RAW MATERIAL & CLOTRaw material is brought from West Bengal, Orissa & other states. It includes Mercer Clay,MP3 Clay, Betonies, Bauxite, Gypsum, Magnesium ,etc. All these are mixed in proper proportion and is converted in to CLOT.
MILL HOUSEClot is transferred to mill house. Here it is heated at 1400-2500C. As a result it becomes harder than before. There are eight mill houses for different bricks.
ROASTINGFrom Mill House it is transferred to Roasting section where the temperature is maintained and its gets colored depending upon the material used. In this section Petroleum Coke is used to absorb air and to emit it outside.
Roasted Clot is grinded in the grinding department.
CONVEYOR BELTGrinded Clot is taken to the storage vessel through Conveyor Belt. Before entering the storage vessel the grinded material passes through various processes until it is converted into Finely Powdered Material.
The finely powdered material enters into the Storage Vessels for making different types of bricks.
TUNNEL - 1When the powdered material enters storage vessels, modifications are made by an computerized machine. Modifications are made to make different qualities of bricks.
CONVEYOR BELT AND CRANE
After the alterations are done, the resultant material is carried forward by the Conveyor belt and Crane and is carried forward to shaping machinery.
SHAPING MACHINEThrough the crane, the material enters Shaping machine where the material gets shape of a Brick. Various machines are there for giving different shapes to bricks.
TROLLEYAfter giving specific shapes to bricks, it is transferred to Tunnel 2 for further processing. Trolley is to be carried manually to the tunnel.
TUNNEL - 2To give the final touch to bricks, these are transferred from trolley to the Tunnel-2. The best feature of the Tunnel 2 is that, here temperature is maintained automatically according to the requirement of bricks. To maintain the temperature, the walls of tunnel is stuffed with special cotton. The temperature can be inferred from a hole provided on the front wall of the Tunnel.

After the whole process the final product is ready. It appears as below :
PACKING & DISPATCH
After the bricks are ready, it is sent for Quality Check and if it is approved, then it is packed and dispatched as per the order.
