HOW THE CONCRETE BRICKS ARE MADE 20.01.2015
Manufacturing concrete bricks with brick maker machine, consists basic processes: mixing, molding, curing, Some manufacturing plants produce concrete bricks, other brick maker machine may produce wide variety concrete products including bricks, paver stones, curbstones.
The sand, the gravel are stored outside in piles and transferred into storage bins in plant by conveyor belt as they are needed. Cement is stored outside in large vertical silos of brick maker machine to protect from moisture.
Production brick maker machine run starts, required amounts sand, gravel, and cement transferred by the gravity by the mechanical means to weigh batcher which measures proper amounts of each material.
The dry materials for brick to the brick maker machine flow into mixer where they are blended together for several minutes. There are two types mixers used by brick maker machine, Pan mixing blades attached vertical rotating shaft inside mixer. Horizontal drum mixer of brick maker machine has mixing blades attached horizontal rotating the shaft inside mixer. After that the materials are blended, small amount water is added to the mixer.
Once load concrete brick maker machine is mixed, dumped into bucket conveyor and transported to elevated hopper. Mixing cycle brick maker machine begins for next load. From the hopper of brick maker machine concrete conveyed to another hopper block machine at measured flow rate. In the brick maker machine, concrete forced downward into molds.
When molds are full of brick maker machine concrete is compacted by the weight of brick maker machine upper mold head coming down on mold cavities of brick maker machine. This compaction of brick maker machine may supplemented by air or hydraulic pressure cylinders acting on mold head. Compacted bricks are pushed down and out of brick maker machine molds onto steel pallet.
