Drying process of the pieces before packing.


What is it?
  • Place where the parts are dried before palletizing.
  • To control the perfect drying of precast concrete, we must introduce heat and / or water spraying power plants into the manufacturing processes, depending on the product to be dried and the geographical area where the installation is located.
  • Controlling humidity and temperature inside the dryer are key to a good cure.
  • A good cure is a guarantee of a higher quality and resistance of the products.

Process description

Drying methods

There are several drying methods:

  • The use of one method or another will depend on the nature of the work and the climatic conditions.
  • The following methods of concrete drying are the most common:

Temperature and humidity control during the drying process will be essential to achieve good mechanical properties of the concrete piece. We have to maintain humidity and heat, but always with a natural drying, not forced.

We get a resistance increase of the pieces when we obtain a well-done drying.

We can see different installations in the pictures, either for automatic installations, or for manual installations.

Dryers with no structure

Different systems of drying. In the case of using trays with legs, especially for the manufacture of paving stones, Rometa presents a conveyor for a package of trays from the installation to the drying area. This system does not need a drying structure

Static or mobile dryer

In the medium-sized facilities, where we work with a forklift, to transport the pieces to the dryer, we have two options. Working with static or mobile shelves:

1. Stationary shelves allow us to work at higher heights and reduce drying space.

2. Mobile shelves have the advantage of being able to adapt more easily to the industrial building.

  • The rotation and translation is simultaneous, to reduce the cycle time, achieving reductions between 15 and 20% of the standard finger car.
  • Manufactured aggregates with which you can manufacture slabs, fences and channels of different types and with different techniques for the creation of concrete.
  • The drying of the pieces can become as important as their manufacture, therefore, we believe that it is essential that you have a drying area for the concrete pieces in your factory
  • In this part, we will talk about the importance of humification after drying 24 hours before palletizing.
  • In this part, we offer the reasons why we believe you need a laboratory (forlab) from Rometa in your factory, advising them on what and how to do it
