The automated ceramic oven feed system is a solution developed by Lippel to meet the specific needs of each customer. This feeding system allows for the improvement of the wood-fired oven, turning it into a wood-chip oven, the food system being entirely controlled by only one control panel.
The use of this system has resulted in a 30% improvement in fuel utilization, increasing the burning efficiency and taking advantage of the entire furnace space, considerably reducing the time of burning, and eliminating the waste of the manufactured material.
The equipment comprising the automated feed system is:
