In late 2014 Direxa was awarded the contract by Triangle Brick, a North Carolina Brick maker, for the design and construction of the crushing / grinding / making facility to be part of Triangle Brickâ€™s Green Field Brick Plant project in Northern Texas. This Brick Plant has an annual capacity of 100 million BE per year. The raw materials is mined on the same site as the plant is located. The crushing capacity exceeds 300 US tons per hour and the crushed material is stored under cover before being reclaimed by front end loader and sent to the grinding plant, capable of 120 US tons per hour at 14 mesh. The ground material is stored in large concrete bunkers before being reclaimed automatically by a HÃ¤ndle multi-bucket excavator and sent to the extrusion room featuring a JC Steele 90 extruder. The project was a major one for Direxa and was completed at the customerâ€™s satisfaction in early 2016.
