Hungarian brick producer purchases ABB technology
Hungarian family-owned brick producer Pápateszéri Téglagyár purchased an ABB SynRM manufactured synchronous-reluctance engine and drive package, which is expected to result in higher efficiency and lower energy consumption, as well as a reduced need for maintenance, ABB said today in a press release.
The company, which has been operating for more than 70 years and has a staff of 50, is one of the few independent brick and tile producers in the country. The company is replacing DC engines with the technology purchased from ABB, the statement added.
“The main problem, aside from the age of the engines, was their high maintenance costs… we were looking for an engine with lower energy consumption and maintenance fees,” Tamás Hauber, the director of the company said.
