Structural ClaySwindell Dressler has been a major supplier of kilns to the face brick industry for more than 70 years constructing not only kilns and dryers, but complete plants as well.
Bricks, tile, or flower pots. No matter what structural clay products you fire, when they enter a Swindell Dressler kiln, they exit in less time and at lower cost.
Our tunnel and shuttle kilns are built to be reliable and economical. Our secret? The SILVER CLOUD™ System.
The SILVER CLOUD™ System is an integrated manufacturing concept that combines the latest technologies of refractory insulation materials, process know-how, and construction techniques. Computerized firing allows program flexibility for changes in product lines.
Our computer-controlled handling systems move products into the right position at the right time. Swindell Dressler low-mass car designs join the best combustion technology with lightweight, cost-effective superstructure materials to increase fuel savings.
In 1994, Swindell Dressler introduced the Low-Set™ brick making process which makes it possible to substantially speed up the times to dry and fire the brick for most clays.
The Low-Set™ brick making process is designed to reduce operating costs by optimizing:
The Low-Set™ process uses a setting height of only 3 or 4 brick. The Low-Set™ package can be set and unloaded with less costly machinery and can be dried faster using less energy. Also, the Low-Set™ package can be fired faster with better temperature uniformity, more uniform flashing and reduced firing losses.
