Elevate your Ceramic Core production with NUTEC Bickley's Kilns

NUTEC Bickley and the Ceramic Cores Industry

NUTEC Bickley has extensive experience designing and manufacturing tunnel kilns, roller kilns and shuttle kilns for Ceramic Cores.

Our kilns use the latest Ecombustion and control technology to fire cores with optimal temperature uniformity and atmosphere conditions to ensure consistent products that require minimal post-fire machining. Special attention is paid to the cycle segments where binders are burnt out.

Ceramic cores are often complex shapes made from high-purity, stable ceramic materials that are set within a mold when a product is cast, in order to create interior holes and pathways in the metal after casting and core removal.

With over 45 years’ experience, including recent installations, NUTEC Bickley has demonstrated know-how and experience firing ceramic cores. The kilns can be fitted with thermal oxidizers or post-exhaust cleaning systems to protect the environment. NUTEC Bickley has supplied many kilns around the world for firing ceramic cores.

NUTEC Bickley supplies tunnel, roller, and shuttle kilns with the latest Ecombustion technology to fire all types of ceramic cores.

Key Features

Excellent temperature uniformity

Ecombustion control system

Fiber-lined sections using our patented Jointless® system (completely free of joints; reduced maintenance and shrinkage), or brick-lined kilns with interlocking bricks

SCADA systems for ease of operation and product quality management

Integrated car handling systems

Power failure protection system

Energy recovery systems to ensure the lowest fuel consumption


Firing/Calcining: High temperature heating is used to force chemical reactions to form stable ceramic cores. If temperatures and conditions are very uniform, then the fired product will be very consistent and have tight size tolerances, which means less macining.



With our SCADA systems, kilns operators are able to have complete control of their firing process, enhancing efficiency and productivity.


NUTEC Bickley’s unique firing and cooling pulsing control system provides a perfect solution in relation to temperature uniformity as well as fuel efficiency.
