1.Can you use chemicals for fixing the bricks without using cement?
|No, Cement is best than chemicals
2.What is the formula for manufacturing flyash bricks?
|Step 01: At first fly ash (60%) + Sand/ Stone dust (30%) + Lime & Gypsum (10%) are put in the Pan mixture. Pan mixture mix these materials and made a proper mixture, a good amount of water is needed for this process.
|Step 02: Then the Pan mixture pushes the mixture to the Conveyor belt. The Belt is connected to the feeder of the machine. With the PLC operation, the mixture falls to the Cavity.
|Step 03: A hydraulic pressure of 300 psi is put on the mixture to form it into hard Brick.
|Step 04: Another conveyor belt or ply pallet is connected with the cavity, the bricks automatically stored in it, and a stalker kept those bricks in the Hydraulic trolley.
|Step 05: Finally those Bricks are kept for 24 hrs. in a shaded place to dry.
|Fly ash (50-60%).
|River Sand or stone dust (30-40%).
3.Can you use flyash bricks for basement?
Fly ash bricks are light in weight, so suitable for multi-story buildings because as the height of the buildings increases, the stress and strain on the foundation and structure increase.
Due to the lighter bricks, this stress and strain are decreases manifold.
These bricks absorb less heat and they are better than clay bricks, for the Indian climate.
Due to the high strength, there is practically no breakdown during transport and use.
The leakage of water through bricks is reduced due to less water penetration.
Gypsum plaster (plaster of Paris) can be directly applied to these bricks without a backing coat of lime plaster.
These bricks do not require to soak in water for 24 hours, a sprinkling of water before use is sufficient.
Less mortar is required during construction, further, the operation of the machine requires less labor.
The compressive strength is very high and they are less porous.
They absorb less water and save costs.
It is environmentally friendly therefore allows your business to take a step towards sustainable development.
No fossil fuels are required for the production of fly ash brick hence no emission of greenhouse gases.
The production of clay brick damages the topsoil and prevents fly ash in the process of manufacturing bricks, there is no solid loss.
Flyash bricks are stronger, more uniform, and denser than clay bricks.
Their mortar consumption is low, their dissipation is only 1% against clay bricks which is around 10%.
4.Can you use flyash bricks for load bearing walls?
|Yes, you can use cement+flyash+sand bricks in min. 23 cm thick load bearing walls of a two strorey house, provided the bricks have been properly cured for at least one month, the compressive strength is not less than 7N/sqmm, water absorption not more than 15% and most of the bricks have strong sharp edges and corners. You must use cement sand mortar 1:6 ratio.
5.How bricks are made in chennai?
|The manufacturing process has six general phases: 1) mining and storage of raw materials, 2) preparing raw materials, 3) forming the brick, 4) drying, 5) firing and cooling and 6) de-hacking and storing finished products. Mining and Storage.
6.How bricks are made in Rural areas?
|There are two types in hand moulding, i.e. ground moulding and table moulding. In this type, bricks are moulded manually and preferred where only a small quantity of bricks is needed.
7.Can bricks be painted?
|Amost every exterior surface, such as wood, UPVC & metal, exterior bricks can be painted if they are properly prepared beforehand.
8.Can bricks be reused?
|Bricks are sustainable, and here is why. Because of the intrinsic properties of bricks, they are very durable and last a very long time. As a result, they can be reused and recycled without taking as much from the environment.
9.Can you remove brick from a house and reuse it?
|Bricks can be dismantled individually by using a chipping hammer or in bigger elements by knocking down the wall with an excavator. Removing bricks one by one using a chipping hammer is slow but breaking the bricks is easier to avoid. Dismantling is done by drilling holes to the mortar joint surrounding the brick
10.Why bricks are wet before use?
|Wetting of bricks assists in removing the dirt, sand and dust from them. Further, it prevents the suction of water from wet mortar, as otherwise mortar is likely to dry out soon and crumble before attaining strength.
11.Which bricks are good for foundation?
|They are fire resistant as well as possessing insulation properties along with thermal and acoustic insulation. These features are what make sand and clay bricks from a trusted construction supplier the best option when it comes to building your home’s foundation
12.Which bricks are good for House construction?
|The most common types of bricks used in construction are based on clay as the material. These include burnt clay brick and fire clay brick. These are usually referred to as common brick. Burnt clay brick is created from clay that is either molded, dry-pressed, or extruded and then dried and fired in a kiln.
1.Why bricks are rectangular?
Wet mortar is very weak in shear or tension. If you offset courses you will be supporting the whole of a blue brick on the point of the one below it, whereas rectangular bricks distribute the compressive load evenly over the entire block.
2.Can bricks be painted?
Amost every exterior surface, such as wood, UPVC & metal, exterior bricks can be painted if they are properly prepared beforehand.
3.Can bricks set on fire?
he lesson here is fairly simple: Brick does not burn, and brick cladding will protect your house from wildfires for at least an hour.
4.Why bricks are red?
An oxidising kiln atmosphere also has an excess of oxygen. During firing, the minerals in the clay give colour to the brick as they absorb oxygen. Iron oxide is one of the most important minerals in clay for giving colour. It is what gives that typical red colour of a brick.
5.Why bricks are wet before use?
Wetting of bricks assists in removing the dirt, sand and dust from them. Further, it prevents the suction of water from wet mortar, as otherwise mortar is likely to dry out soon and crumble before attaining strength.
6.What bricks can be used for pizza oven?
Fire bricks are used widely by professionals and seen as being much more ‘tradtional’ -especially for pizza ovens. You would be hard pressed to find an Italian -or any nationality- brick oven enthusiast who would suggest using anything but fire bricks for the inside of the oven!
7.Which bricks are environment friendly?
When compared to many other facing materials such as so-called concrete bricks, plastics, glass and others, natural clay brick remains one of the most eco-friendly, flexible, cost effective and beautiful materials used in construction
8.Are Bricks Sustainable?
Brick is a natural, quality, user and maintenance-friendly product, that is durable during all phases of its life cycle. In the construction phase from the use of raw materials, production process to packaging.
9.Which bricks explored in fire?
Bricks can indeed explode in a fire pit. Although not common, it is possible. In some instances, bricks have exploded, cracked, or broke down in a fire pit. If that happened to you, there is a good chance the bricks you used are not made of proper material to withstand the heat.
