Pumps for the ceramic industry usually have to satisfy specific requirements. And the most used are pneumatic diaphragm pumps and centrifugal pumps.
Because they are suitable for production lines and pumping stages, which are raw materials to produce ceramic products.
Production of ceramics
Ceramics is a handicraft industry in our country. Ceramic products have unique features. They depend on the skill of the shaping artist. The ceramic industry offers a wide range of household cups, bowls and cups to flower pots, bathtubs,… or industrial and automation details.
The ceramic production process usually goes through the following steps:
- Find and process raw materials. Mainly land
- Blend, form a paste to prepare for the stylist
- Creating objects and decorating patterns
- The next step is to cover and coat the product with enamel
- After the product is painted and covered with a complete enamel, the product put into the kiln.
With the main content of this article, we will mention the stages where we need to use the pump lines to pump production materials. How is the specification? Would you mind continuing to follow the content below?
Pump application for ceramic industry
When it comes to ceramics, handicrafts, few people mention the role of pump heads and pumping equipment. Therefore, when we need to find out about the pump lines used in the industry, it isn’t elementary. There is almost no relevant information on the internet environment at all!
We can briefly introduce the main stages using pumps as follows:
Pumping water into the tank-mixed with clay and agar: This stage creates a slurry and stores it in the reservoirs. The step of forming the paste mixture to serve the following locations. Centrifugal pumps are used a lot for this process to pump clean water mainly.
Pumping the slurry solution into the spray drying oven: In this stage, the diaphragm pump pumps the slurry mixture from the storage tank through the screens. After that, the pump will inject the filtered solution into the drying oven. Diaphragm pumps are the most optimal solution for this and many other operations because of their dry-running characteristics, which can pump thick and solid particles.
Enamel stitching and colour mixing: In this stage, diaphragm pumps pump yeast into the hoppers and colour pumps to create different colours.
These three stages are the three most basic stages where we see the role of the pump heads. They not only help automate the process but also help free up manual labour. Let artisans focus their spirit and energy on creating the most beautiful ceramic works.
Notes when choosing pumps for the ceramic industry
Understanding the production processes and stages helps us determine the ceramic production pump with the suitable capacity and type.
To achieve efficiency in production and business and save costs, companies need to choose pumps for ceramic output according to the following criteria:
- Select equipment that is suitable for the system in terms of capacity and power supply
- Choose the right type for each stage of production. For example, a Centrifugal pump used to supply clean water, and a pneumatic diaphragm pump used to pump porcelain glaze fluid,…
- It recommends using pumps of well-known brands in the industry
- Use genuine equipment from the distributor for installation advice and instructions on correct pump operation. In addition, we also guide on periodic maintenance of the pump to increase the stability of the system and the pump’s durability.
The ceramic industry in Vietnam has developed for a long time. But at that time, the technology had not applied to the production process at all. Therefore, the products made in small quantities, and the quality is not uniform.
Today, with the development of pumps for the ceramic industry. Bringing to the stages, the production lines are fully automated. Therefore, the products are also more uniform in quantity as well as in quality. And the design is also more elaborate and sophisticated. Increase the value of the product.
