Tile Production Equipment

Overview of Tile Industry

Tile,The word is derived from the French word tuile, which is, in turn, from the Latin word tegula, meaning a roof tile composed of fired clay. Tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such asceramic,stone, metal, or even glass. Tiles are generally used for covering roofs,floors,walls, showers, or other objects such as tabletops. besides , tile can sometimes refer to similar units made from lightweight materials such as perlite, wood, and mineral wool, typically used for wall and ceiling applications. In another sense, a tile is a construction tile or similar object, such as rectangular counters used in playing games (see tile-based game).

Ceramic tile is usually used to form a wall and floor coverings, square can range from simple to complex Mosaic tiles. Ceramic tile are usually made of ceramic, refractory clay, or ceramic and hard glaze, but other materials have been widely used, such as glass, metal, cork, and rock. Ceramic tile is usually a marble stone, jade, granite or SLATE. Thin brick can be used for wall than the floor, it needs to be thicker and more durable surface.

Main types of tile processing machines include the crushing machine and tile body drying milling machine. In the future, automation will continue to play an important role in an effort to increase production, lower costs, and improve quality. In addition, changes in production technology due to environmental and energy resource issues will continue. However, these problems mentioned above can be solved well by high quality and environment-friendly tile production equipment.

Flowchart of Tile Production Equipment

Zenith can offer all kinds of tile production equipment needed in the whole production process. The process flowchart of tile production equipment is described as follows:

Tile Production Equipment
  1. The raw materials must be pulverized and classified according to particle size. Primary crushers are used to reduce large lumps of material. Usually, a jaw crusher or gyratory crusher is used, and PE series jaw crusher made by Zenith can fully meet the requirements of particle size.
  2. The initial step in the tile production process involves mixing the ingredients. Sometimes, water is then added and the ingredients are wet milled or ground in a ball mill. The resulting powder is then pressed into the desired tile body shape.
  3. Secondary crushing reduces smaller lumps to particles. Hammer mills are often used. Typically, a hammer mill uses rapidly moving steel hammers to crush the material. However, cone crushers can also be used. So many applications in the tile manufacture process have proved that HP Series Hydraulic Cone Crusher made by Zenith can have a good impact on the secondary crushing stage.
  4. Tile bodies can also be prepared by dry grinding followed by granulation. Granulation uses a machine in which the mixture of previously dry-ground material is mixed with water in order to form the particles into granules, which again form a powder ready for forming. Usually, a ball mill is used as tile body dry milling machine, paving the way for later process, such as forming, drying, and firing.

Tile Body Dry Milling Machine

As mentioned above, tile body dry milling machine plays an important role in the grinding process. Ball mill consists of large rotating cylinders partially filled with spherical grinding media. Compared tile body dry milling machines other brands, ball mill made by Zenith features strong adaptability, continuous production, large crushing ratio and easy to adjust the product's size.
