Prior to designing any dryer and kiln layout, Lingl, as one of the worldwide suppliers of equipment for the ceramic building materials industry, always conducts comprehensive raw material tests. This is the basis for high-quality products made by Lingl's customers. This article presents those laboratory tests at least necessary from the point of view of the plant supplier as well as supplementary tests. Part 1 of the article deals with material analyses of the raw materials (primary properties). Part 2, which will be published in one of the next Zi Brick and Tile Industry International, introduces tests on the ceram-technological behaviour, i.e. the drying and firing behaviour (secondary properties) as well as possible tests at pilot-plant scale.

Owing to the modernization measures a 10 % reduction of the energy consumption of dryer and kiln could be achieved in the Spijk plant. In the Spouwen S3 plant the gas consumption was reduced by 5 %. Summarizing the facts it can be said that intelligent concepts for the energetic optimization in connection with the modernization of the control systems reduce the cost of operation and increase operational safety.

The thermal processes in kilns and dryers are essential factors in the operation of a production plant. In the manufacture of ceramics, the product quality as well as energy consumption are strongly dependent on the design of the process systems. The considerate man-agement of resources, sustainability and the reduction of CO 2 emissions are significant features resulting in lowered and optimized cost of operation on the one hand and, at the same time, in a contribution to environmental protection.

Representing the ceramic plant and equipment manufacturers of Europe, the VDMA working group ECTS (European Ceramic Technology Suppliers) is actively injecting its know-how into the generation of an "Ecodesign Directive". The ceramic industry will belong to Energy-using Product Group Analysis ot 4: Industrial and aboratory Furnaces and Ovens. ingl Managing Partner Frank Appel, as ECTS deputy, is representing the interests of the ceramic plant and equipment manufacturers. We asked him to tell us about the options that are open to the brick and tile industry for conserving energy and about the challenges our branch will be facing in the future.
