ERGOBRIX’s main business focus is the production of a wide range of bricks to cover all the types of market demands. The company is using its own clay pit, which holds a major competitive advantage over the local market competitors and import products.
Presently the company is producing five types of bricks for both interior and exterior works. The company is continuously looking to improve its own production in order to secure the end buyer a qualitative and ergonomic product.
The first step is supplying the production process with raw materials. The search for clay deposits is performed using standard methods of geological research. At the same time, clay raw materials, brought from the quarry, are extremely rarely suitable for the production of high quality products. The technological preparation of the clay mass is made using a variety of special machines.
Clay extraction is done using excavators, bulldozers and other relatively small machines. The transportation of the raw materials is conducted through trucks and transportation lines. The production of bricks involves complex technologies, necessary for the preparation of the clay mass and observing the correct characteristics.
Clay mass is produced with the help of special equipment used for assortment, mixers, etc. In order to ensure technical and economical efficiency, the factory is using permanent/ constant production lines/ equipment.
Clay rocks are sorted according to the quality standards, followed by the main technological process – burning.
After bricks are formed, using a special matrix, the next production step is drying, until the brick will reach the 5-6% of humidity level. The modern production process, requires the drying tunnel or dedicated drying rooms. Drying level could vary, depending on the stage of the brick production, and it could reach gradually over 1000 °C. At this stage, all organic materials are burned, and moisture is gradually evaporated. This is how the final product (brick) is are formed. Afterwards, the pallets of brick are placed in storage and delivered to the end consumer (real estate developers).
A particularity of the final product is that bricks have almost unlimited shelf life (if minimal conditions are secured).
