Challenges for the indian ceramic tile industry:
- The need is to produce maximum first quality tiles which brings better revenue and minimize the production of second quality tiles
- The indian tile market is moving towards larger ceramic tiles
- Larger ceramic tiles mean increased loads, which needs kiln rollers of high bending strength and minimum elasticity to produce more first quality tiles
Hob certec produces world-class, zero-defect ceramic rollers with high bending strength and low elasticity that ensures long life and low maintenance. The roller array has designed contours for each area of the kiln that ensure recommended heating and cooling. Importantly, these rollers keep the tiles in line before the firing zone when the tiles get softer. The result are impeccable flatter, less deformed-edged, first quality tiles, batch after batch. Plus the kiln capacity can be increased because the tiles being all in line and more tiles can be put into the furnace, hob certec rollers are preferred by the world''s best kiln manufacturers like sacmi, siti, wcelko, ferni and others.Special Roll
Bending strength 45 n/mm2, operation temperature: up to 1240 °c.
for preheating and cooling zone and for lighter wall and floor tiles in firing zone. Super Roll
Bending strength 50 n/mm2, operation temperature: up to 1260 °c. For firing zone of heavy wall and floor tiles especially granite tiles.
Super Roll H:
Bending strength 55 n/mm2, operation temperature: up to 1280 °c. For very long rollers and very heavy wall and floor tiles, especially large and thick granite tiles up to 80 kg/m2. Roller length up to 4600 mm possible.
Bending strength: 65 n/mm2, operation temperature: up to 1350°c. Hyperroll is a newly developed high performance roller and is designed for very hard working conditions as extreme chemical attack, high temperature and load. Hyperroll has a very smooth surface for less dirtiness on roller during operation and easier cleaning.
Super Ring Roll
Improves tile quality through more uniform cooling in rapid cooling zone. The ultimate solution against roller deformation in the cooling zone due to reduced contact surface to tiles. Superringroll improves output of first choice tiles due to more uniform cooling and less remaining tension inside the tiles.
