AB  - During the last 10 years it was shown that Deff – MR curve pattern is unique and very useful. This ability was firstly embedded in the procedure for setting up the fast drying regimes several years ago. This incredible pattern was used again in this invited paper. Actually, if the test samples formed from the same clay do not crack during drying in at least two isothermal experiments in which drying air temperature was different, while drying air humidity and velocity were constant, the unique line can be constructed. This line is linking corresponding Deff – MR curves through the same characteristic point. For simplicity reasons it was chosen to construct and use only the unique line pulled through characteristic E points. Its slope was proposed as the objective criteria for evaluation of the clays suitability for the rapid drying application. It was found that clays, for which the unique line slope is larger, had better dimensional and mechanical properties and were more suitable for the construction of the fast drying regimes.

AB  - In this paper, the drying modeling of roofing tiles was done using a "lumped" approach. In
other words, several forces that are influencing internal moisture transport are combined to
create effective moisture diffusivity. For this reason, the effective diffusivity coefficient was
added to Cranck's diffusion equation. In their earlier works, the authors published the solution
to the diffusion equation, which assumes that effective diffusivity is constant. It was
demonstrated that, particularly if shrinkage is not taken into account during the computation
stage, the simulated drying curves differ from the experimental results. The next step was to
ascertain the time-dependent effective diffusivity and to more precisely anticipate the drying
kinetic. The general functional relationship between effective moisture diffusivity and Fourier
number was first determined to fulfill this assignment. Experimental proof of the proposed
model was provided. Less than 3% of the outcomes from the simulation and the experiment
deviated from each other. This was a resounding affirmation that effective diffusivity is not
constant during drying and that all internal transport mechanisms are observable in their timedependent
relation.

Estimation of the drying behaviour for different clay raw materials - drying sensitivity techniques review Epitoanyang 2022

AB  - In order to rate the drying behavior of different clay raw materials it is necessary to establish
the criteria for comparison. Mineralogical composition, clay minerals content, particle size
distribution, packing, porosity, forming procedure, and raw material aging are known as
intrinsic parameters. Due to the fact that these parameters are cross linked and are usually
inter-dependently related to each other, the attempts to set up a criteria for correlation between
intrinsic parameters and drying sensitivity has been limited. That was the reason why the
estimation of the cracking tendency was linked with the easiness of the drying process in each
reported method. The most applied methods for estimation of the drying sensitivity of clays in
the ceramic industry were proposed by Bigot, Ratzenberger, Piltz, Hermansson and Varlamov.
The fact that previously mentioned methods were not compared up till know has defined the
main objective of this study. The only reported comparison was between Bigot and Ratzenberg
drying sensitivity index. The second objective of this review was to present these methods and to
estimate the drying behavior of tree different clay raw material. It was confirmed that Varlamov
method is very simple, accurate and fast. It is correlated with the mineralogical composition of
clay and cannot be used for description of the drying kinetic. The other two models can provide
info about the drying kinetic. Piltz model is the most relevant for describing the drying behavior at
the beginning of the drying. The results have confirmed that the most suitable conclusion about
the drying behavior of the tested clays is obtained when results from Bigot, Piltz and Varlamov
methods are available.

AB  - This paper goal was to increase the quality of the drying ware and to lower the drying scarp rate in one local brick factory. The registration of drying air parameters (temperature, humidity and velocity) along the dryer channels as well as the drying ware linear shrinkage and mass change were monitored for a month. Material and Energy balances were also recorded. Results have revealed that the drying air humidity and temperature profiles were not evenly distributed along the height of the drying tunnels. The ambient air breakthrough into the dryer was experimentally identified and quantified. It was the cause of the product quality deterioration and the reason why the critical and residual moisture in some of the products was larger than the desired one. Based on monitored data and mass and energy balances a solution was proposed for preventing the “false” air breakthrough, upgrade of the existing dryer fans and installation of the novel, measuring equipment. A hypothetical solution for increasing the capacity of the dryer, which uses the registered material and energy balances as well as factory management expectation, that the production of 50.000 masonry units per day will be achieved soon, was given also.

AB  - The industrial raw material compositions in brick
or tile production are normally adapting from time to time
with novel clays. The proper raw material change must be
based on the reliable raw material characterization tests.
Regardless to the fact that commonly used (Bigot, Muller-
Biehl, Ratzenberger, Piltz, Hermansons, etc.) drying
sensitivity criterions allow the comparison of different raw
materials they are not related with the mineral composition
and mechanical nature of clays. Besides these are timedemanding
tests. The X-ray characterization of raw
material is reliable only when orientated samples are
prepared. In other cases, it is necessary to have additional
characterization test such as thermo-differential (DTA) and
thermo-gravimetric (TG) analysis in order to confirm the
presence or absence of individual clay minerals. The
quantity of the interlayer water content present in clays is
in direct correlation with the mineralogical composition
and the clay type. This effect can be easily qualified on the
DTA/TG curves. This was a trigger for establishing the
novel rapid drying sensitivity criteria. The analysis of
different raw materials has confirmed that the moisture
loss registered on TG curves at 2000C can be used as novel
drying sensitivity criterion. This value is respectively for
insensitive raw materials less than 2.0 while for highly
sensitive one is larger than 2.80. The proposed method is
very simple, rapid and reliable for the application in brick
and tile industry. The second objective of this paper was to
compare the results of the proposed method with the
widely used Bigoth, Ratzenberg and Piltz tests. A good
correlation was found.

AB  - Drying has an enormous impact on the quality of final masonry clay elements. The accumulated knowledge about modeling the drying process, as well as the registered progress in computing the coupling between the heat and mass transfer during the last decade has reached the applicative industrial level. The available novel commercial drying solutions have dropped the drying cycle to 5 hours for hollow clay products and up to 9 hours for clay blocks of large size and weight. The ability to speed up the drying process also strongly depends on the properties of the raw materials. The decision on optimization of the existing dryer and its upgrade or investment in a novel drying facility must be experimentally validated. Results of the one-month monitoring and analysis of the production process in one Serbian brick factory including the material and energy balances are given in this paper. Based on the collected data, raw material limitations and costs of the novel dryer the existing tunnel dryer upgrade and the minimization of the "false" ambient air into the dryer are proposed.

AB  - In this study, an optimal mixture of loess brick clays and waste coal dust in laboratory hollow blocks production is determined with the aim of promoting sustainable development in terms of saving resources and energy. The novelty of the work lies in the first-time utilization of waste coal dust in combination with loess soil brick-making thus bolstering European effort on waste utilization. The mentioned is also in line with UN sustainable development goals, SDG 12 and 9. The chemical and mineralogical contents of the clays were obtained using various chemical characterization methods, and thermal behavior by using dilatometry and simultaneous DSC/TG analysis. The important ceramic and technological characteristics of the extruded brick clay and waste coal dust composite samples during molding, drying, and firing were obtained. The chosen mixture of 70 % calcareous clay and 30 % plastic clay to 3 % of high-calorie waste coal dust is found optimal. Industrial-scale optimal blocks (250x190x190 mm(3)) with 60 % of vertical voids were fired in a tunnel kiln, and the firing regime was recorded. It is determined that the regime must be corrected in the firing and cooling zone since the differences measured by thermo-couples were up to 180 degrees C. The industrial prototype was found to be of satisfactory quality meeting the requirements of water absorption and compressive strength as per European and other international standards. The study was first of a kind detailed characterization of the industrial size bricks encompassing waste coal dust and loess brick clays, with the emphasis on the usability in the industry, and additionally recording and correcting of the firing regime in a tunnel kiln. The product is recyclable and can be disposed of safely after the end of life.

AB  - This study presents the 51 mixtures of ceramic clays characterized by using XRF, XRD, granulometry, and dilatometry analyses. After firing in a 1000-1250 °C range, water absorption (WA) according to EN standards by boiling in water, under vacuum, and by 24 h soaking is determined. The results indicated that there was a high and statistically significant correlation between the standard methods, but the testing under vacuum gave the highest saturation of the samples fired at 1200 °C and 1250 °C. It is determined that these illitic-kaolinitic clays can be used to produce floor ceramic tiles belonging to the BIIa group (water absorption between 3% and 6%). The study also aimed to reveal which method of WA determination is suitable to read the sintering interval from the gresification diagrams, which is compared to the beginning of sintering as read from dilatometry curves.

AB  - The general method for industrial chamber dryer optimization was reported in this paper. The first step in finding the most suitable drying regime is to characterized the clay raw material, especially its water loss at 2000C and to determine the critical drying rate inside the specially constructed laboratory dryer. These data provides us information if the product or the dryer is the bottleneck for the optimisation. If the optimization is justified geometry of the dryer, air mass flows, temperature, and humidity profiles inside the dryer as well as initial water content in the drying material, initial temperature of the products and the load of the dryer are required. Some of the previously mentioned data are only used to check if the chamber dryer is working properly, while the others are used as the initial parameters necessary for software simulation. In this paper two models for calculating the optimal drying parameters were used. The first model was developed from the comprehensive theory of the moisture migration during isothermal drying. The calculation software for setting up the non - isothermal drying regimes was reported in our previous papers. It is important to say that this model was not able to adequately predict the temperature raise within the drying products. In order to simulate the raise of the temperature of the roofing tiles during drying the second model was used. This simple receding drying front model was firstly reported by Kitcher. If both models are used simultaneously it is possible to calculate air temperatures, product temperature, absolute and relative humidity of the drying air, moisture content of the product, drying rate etc ... It is important to mention that this approach can lead to the recommendations for changes inside the dryer before an optimized situation is achieved. One example of such situations is described in this paper in details.

AB  - Drying is one of the most important steps in the production process of masonry units. In order to prevent the formation of cracks during drying information's about the moisture migration rate variability as well as the material strength variability through drying are necessary. The main goal of this paper was to find a solution how to prevent the crack formation at the beginning (during the first hour) of the drying for the drying sensitive illite raw material. The first step was to record a series of isothermal Deff - MR curves at different drying air temperatures and constant drying air velocity and humidity. As it was already reported all moisture transport mechanisms during isothermal drying are visible on those curves. Characteristic spots registered on these curves were then transposed on the experimentally registered figure material strength us moisture content. It was found that the material strength for the cracked masonry units at the beginning of drying was around 0.09 MPa and that the time of cracking was near the characteristic spot B. Registered material strength and the crack time position (spot B) has additionally confirmed that the drying sensitivity of the raw material are obviously related with the present clay mineral constituents structure and the initial moisture content of the green heavy clay units. Using the Deff values registered for each experiment in the spot B we were able to calculate the maximal moisture transport rate and consequently the proper drying air parameters which are safe and which will not initialize the formation of the cracks at the beginning of the drying.

Using the Deff values registered for each experiment in the spot B we were able to calculate the maximal moisture transport rate and consequently the proper drying air parameters which are safe and which will not initialize the formation of the cracks at the beginning of the drying.",

AB  - The description of the moisture transfer in porous media during drying was the subject of many scientific studies. The unique drying theory was developed five years ago and has recently won a general recognition in the scientific community. This paper is providing the update of the recently reported method for setting up the optimal drying parameters inside the heavy clay dryer. The main goal of this paper was to find a way how to reduce the number of experiments without affecting the quality of the previously proposed calculation method. The critical drying rate, as well as the drying behavior can be easily registered inside the laboratory recirculation dryer for any heavy clay product. These data provides a clear perception of how far the real drying curve, used in industrial dryer, is away from the shortest possible one. The algorithm of the updated procedure was based on the Box-Wilkinson's orthogonal multi - factorial experimental design. The updated model outputs were represented as the governing equations which were used to predict the time intervals between any two chosen characteristic points, specified in the unique drying theory, as a function of the drying air parameters. These equations were valid for any value of the drying air parameters taken from the previously established limiting boundary range. The updated procedure was compared with the original one for two predefined drying air parameters sets. Regardless to the fact that in the first case the results were not experimentally obtained they were similar to those which were in the second case experimentally identified. This was additional confirmation that the same quality degree has been maintained in both procedures, despite the fact that the total number of experiments was lower in the upgraded procedure than in the original one.

AB  - Over the past three decades, traditional ceramic facilities, such as chamber and tunnel dryers, are improved. Better thermotechnical equipment, operational strategies, and reliable scale-up methodologies have lead to higher quality of the dried clay roofing tiles. Although there has been a progress, up to this study, there is no universally or even widely applicable criterion, which could be used to precisely define the change of drying air parameters (humidity, temperature, and velocity) during the drying process. The objective of this study was to specify the variable air parameters that should be used during the drying process to approach as much as possible to the theoretically defined optimal drying process.

AB  - In our previous studies we have presented the calculation method along with the procedure for setting up the non isothermal drying regime. Even though this method is harmonized, with the theory of moisture migration during drying and can be used to predict the optimal industrial drying regime and proper drying air parameters, up till now it was not compared with other models. The main goal of this paper, was to compare and evaluate our model with the one reported by the German group of authors in 2008. The first task was to create criteria for model evaluation. Five parameters were chosen: non-existence of cracks, total drying time, twist coefficient, chamber coefficient and flexural strength. The second task was to create a software tool, for modeling the first and second drying section of green clay masonry element, using the instructions provided within the published articles. The third task was to apply German and our procedure on the same clay raw material. Results have shown the absence of cracks on dried and fired samples. In the case of German method total drying time, as well as twist and camber coefficients were higher while the physico - mechanical properties were lower. Presented results have additionally validated that our dying model can be used for the accurate prediction of industrial drying kinetics and a reliable estimation of moisture transport during drying.

AB  - One of the main disadvantages of the recently reported method, for setting up the drying regime based on the theory of moisture migration during drying, lies in a fact that it is based on a large number of isothermal experiments. In addition each isothermal experiment requires the use of different drying air parameters. The main goal of this paper was to find a way how to reduce the number of isothermal experiments without affecting the quality of the previously proposed calculation method. The first task was to define the lower and upper inputs as well as the output of the "black box" which will be used in the Box-Wilkinson's orthogonal multi-factorial experimental design. Three inputs (drying air temperature, humidity and velocity) were used within the experimental design. The output parameter of the model represents the time interval between any two chosen characteristic points presented on the Deff -t. The second task was to calculate the output parameter for each planed experiments. The final output of the model is the equation which can predict the time interval between any two chosen characteristic points as a function of the drying air parameters. This equation is valid for any value of the drying air parameters which are within the defined area designated with lower and upper limiting values.

Microstructural analysis was conducted via optical microscope and scanning electron microscope coupled with energy dispersive spectrometer. Ceramic tiles contained black spots and dark brown clusters with yellow halos. Black spots originated from carbon contained in starting glaze raw materials. EDS analysis of clusters of dark-brown color in the pores showed the presence of Fe, which is found to affect the quality of the visible tile surface. Non-homogeneities on the roof tiles surfaces appeared in the form of stains and manifested after immersions in water or aspersing water on the tile surface. The cause of inhomogeneities was a local phenomenon due to the porous structure of micro cracks caused by coarse metallic grains that are imported with the raw materials.

AB  - In our previous studies we have developed a model for determination of the variable effective diffusivity and identification of the exact transition points between possible drying mechanisms. The next goal was to develop a drying regime which could in advance characterize the real non isothermal process of drying clay tiles. In order to do this four isothermal experiments were recorded. Temperature and humidity were maintained at 350C / 75%; 450C / 70%; 450C / 60% and 500C / 60%; respectively in each experiment. All experimentally collected data were analyzed and the exact transition points between possible drying mechanisms were detected. Characteristic drying period (time) for each isothermal drying mechanism was also detected. The real, non-isothermal drying process was approximated by 5 segments. In each of these segments approximately isothermal drying condition were maintained. Temperature and humidity of the drying air, in the first four segments, was maintained on the same level as in recorded isothermal experiments while in the fifth segment, it were maintained at 700C / 40%. The duration of the first four segments were calculated from the diagrams Deff - t respectively for each experiment. The clay tile in experiment five was dried without cracking using the proposed non isothermal drying regime.

Temperature and humidity of the drying air, in the first four segments, was maintained on the same level as in recorded isothermal experiments while in the fifth segment, it were maintained at 700C / 40%. The duration of the first four segments were calculated from the diagrams Deff - t respectively for each experiment. The clay tile in experiment five was dried without cracking using the proposed non isothermal drying regime.",

AB  - The description of the drying process was reduced to the establishment of a series of theoretical and empirical drying models. The complex processes of simultaneous moisture and heat transfer, which are often nonstationary, and the distinct nature and properties of the material to be dried further complicate the description of the drying process. Three theories-diffusion theory, capillary flow theory, and evaporation-condensation theory-have won general recognition for the explanation of moisture transfer in porous media. The mechanisms of moisture movement during drying in the constant and especially in the falling drying period are rather complex and, hitherto, there have been no generally accepted explanations that could identify the exact transition between possible drying mechanisms, such as liquid movement due to capillary forces, liquid diffusion due to concentration gradients, liquid and vapor flow due to differences in total pressure, vapor diffusion due to difference in vapor concentration, vapor diffusion due to partial vapor pressure gradients, Knudsen diffusion, thermodiffusion, and the evaporation-condensation mechanism. The goal of this study was to find a way to better understand the different drying mechanisms, to identify the exact transition between them, and to estimate the time-dependent effective diffusivity. The results presented in this article confirmed that the effective diffusivity represents an overall mass transport property of moisture that includes all possible moisture transport mechanisms that are simultaneously controlling the moisture migration process in a material during drying. The experimental investigations were performed on clay tiles in a laboratory recirculation dryer, for which the drying parameters (humidity, temperature, and velocity) could be programmed, controlled, and monitored during drying.

AB  - In order to describe the internal moisture rate and to take all different mechanisms of moisture movement into account, it is suitable to use effective diffusivity as a measure of moisture rate, irrespectively of the mechanisms really involved. This means that all different mechanisms and driving forces for internal moisture transport are lumped together and introduced into effective moisture diffusivity. Hence, diffusion equations are retained and reused with the effective diffusivity coefficient as a measuring parameter of internal moisture ratio. In our previous studies we have presented the calculation method which assumed constant diffusivity. The next goal was to estimate effective diffusivity at various moisture contents, in a real case of non-linear drying curves, and to predict drying kinetic. In our last study we have developed a model for determination of the variable effective diffusivity and identification of the exact transition points between possible drying mechanisms. In this paper we have tried to develop more accurate tool for determination of time dependent effective moisture diffusivity. An analytical model and computing procedure were developed to evaluate mass transfer properties and describe drying kinetic of clay tiles having less clay fraction. The proposed procedure was validated with experimental drying data. Presented results have demonstrated that the proposed dying model can be applied for the accurate description of experimental drying kinetics and a reliable estimation of effective diffusivity.

AB  - Drying plays an important role in the production of clay tiles. In the present article, drying process is analyzed taking experimental data for several masonry clays obtained from different clay tile manufacturers and published data for different clay slabs. Calculation methods and computer programs designed for the calculation of the effective diffusion coefficient are developed. The first calculation method represents the analytical solution of the Crank equation, while the second one represents the analytical solution of the Efremov equation with boundary conditions in the form of the flux. Unlike other materials, clay tiles exhibit shrinkage during the drying process. For this reason, a shrinkage correction is included in both calculation methods. Four models (Al, A2, B1 and B2) for predicting the drying behavior are obtained as the result of the calculation cited programs. It is shown that the calculated effective diffusion coefficient determined by the designed computer programs, using experimentally obtained and selected published data sets have similar values to those of the same coefficient reported in the literature. Based on the mathematically determined prognostic values of the effective diffusion coefficient, it was concluded that there is more than 90% agreement between the experimentally recorded and the calculated drying curves.
