Ceramics Industry by Limult

Industrial ceramics

Ceramics are broadly defined as inorganic, nonmetallic materials that exhibit such useful properties as high strength and hardness, high melting temperatures, chemical inertness, and low thermal and electrical conductivity but that also display brittleness and sensitivity to flaws. Ceramics are used in many industrial applications to support manufacturing within sectors such as metallurgical, chemical, mechanical, and energy production.

Properties that make these materials desirable in these fields are primarily wear and corrosion resistance, hardness, resistance to chemical attack, thermal and electrical insulation, and high-temperature resistance and compressive strength.

Ceramics are used in industrial applications including thermal barrier coatings and thermal insulating textiles, and electrical insulators for machinery components and sensors.

LIMULT GROUP is a manufacturer of the Industrial Precision Advanced Ceramic Parts and Components.

As a ceramic parts manufacturer, we can offer machining or customized full range of precision ceramic parts according to customer requirements.

The cement industry is one of the main industries necessary for
sustainable development. It can be considered the backbone for development. Few construction projects can take place without
utilizing cement somewhere in the design.

The cement industry in Nigeria has experienced immense growth over the
past few years. With a population of over 140 million people and a growth rate
of approximately 3% per annum, the demand for and consumption of cement is
expected to increase. Government however remains the largest consumer of cement
in the country with an estimated 50% of total consumption. The frequency of
road and bridge reconstruction as well as rehabilitation of social
infrastructure emphasizes government's continued patronage of the industry but
also widens the demand-supply gap which currently exists. The Nigerian Cement industry has the potential
to contribute to the larger economy in several ways. First, by virtue of its
nature, the industry is labor intensive and is therefore a major employer of labor
both skilled and unskilled. The industry also has a significant contribution to
the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and is a source of Foreign Direct
Investment. Through the construction, renovation and rehabilitation of major
roads, bridges, networks and public infrastructure, the cement industry plays a
major role in overall economic development and enhancement of social welfare.

The strength of Limult Group
in the Cement Industry

strength of LIMULT Group is simple - the company has experience in the
operations, technical optimization, strategy development, due diligence of
mergers and acquisitions and financial performance of the cement business.

many consultancies focus on the technical design of cement plants, LIMULT
offers advice relating to overall performance of the plant, its procedures and
operations and the performance of the personnel. 

provides practical solutions that can be implemented by its Clients to improve
their performance.

addition to the cement sector services, LIMULT also provides consulting
services to related building materials sectors such as Aggregates and Ready-
Mix Concrete. Whilst the business is different, the consulting principle is the
same - optimization of operations and quality with minimum financial outlay to
deliver maximum profitability.

Categorise of bricks by shapes

In the history of professional construction practices, brick is one of the oldest of all building materials. It is also arguably the most durable since there are brick walls, foundations, pillars, and road surfaces constructed thousands of years ago that are still intact. Today, bricks are most often used for wall construction, especially as an ornamental outer wall surface.

Brick Defined

Officially, the term brick is used to denote a building unit made of shaped clay, but in modern times it is used to refer to any stone- or clay-based building unit that is joined with cementitious mortar when used in construction. Typically, bricks are about 4 wide, 8 inches long, with a variety of thicknesses. Larger stone- or clay-based building units of the type used in foundations are usually called blocks.

How Bricks Are Categorized

There are several ways that brick can be categorized. For example, you can divide brick into the types used for facing (exposed and visible on the exterior of a structure) vs. backing bricks (which are used structurally and are hidden from view)Another means of categorizing brick is according to how they are manufactured: unfired (brick that is air-cured) and fired (brick that is baked in ovens to harden it). Bricks can be also categorized according to their typical use: common bricks or engineering bricks. For purposes of residential construction, it is usually common bricks that are of most interest, since engineering bricks are more often used in civil engineering projects, such as road or bridge construction, or sewers construction.

Bricks can also be categorized according to their shape. Some common shapes include:

  • Brick veneers: These bricks are thin and used for surface cladding.
  • Airbricks: These bricks contain large holes to circulate air and lessen weight. They are used on suspended floors and cavity walls.
  • Perforated bricks: These bricks contain many cylindrical holes drilled throughout the brick. They are very light in weight. 
  • Bullnose brick: These are bricks moulded with round angles.
  • Paving bricks: These bricks contain a good amount of iron. They are used in underfoot paving applications.
  • Capping bricks: These bricks are used to cap the tops of freestanding walls. 
  • Hollow bricks: About one-third of the weight of the normal bricks, these are used mostly in partition walls where load-bearing is not required.
