25 Nov 11 brick making machine extruder clay bricks

the age old manual processes have given way to modern methods of efficient brick manufacturing and rapid drying and firing HAMGAM SANAT is a world leader in such processes and is producing very robust, long lasting and reliable machinery. Semi-automatic plants still use sun for drying the bricks. in some cases the transfers are manually handled. in both the automatic and semi-automatic processes the crushing of the soil is done using a primary and a secondary crusher . the powdered clay is mixed with water and allowed to become homogeneous in curing tanks . Air is removed using vacuum pumps. This homogenous mixture of water and clay is extruded to from bricks. In the automatic process the bricks are transferred into hot air ovens by use of handling machinery. after drying the bricks are mechanically transferred to firing kilns .HAMGAM SANAT kilns which are among the most efficient in the world ensure even firing of all bricks thus eliminating rejects. The kilns use gasoline, Mazut , gas and most other commercially available fuels.

08 Sep 11 Making Pizza – Part 4 – Preparing the Dough

In a home environment, we do not have 700 degree pizza ovens. We have regular home ovens. So we need to prepare the dough accordingly so that will be crispy on the outside, and soft in the inside. The dough recipe is formulated to get the best out of a home environment. When it comes to the dough the most important thing to remember is: -Always pre-bake the dough until you see golden spotting on the top. About 10 min. You can let it golden a bit more if you choose. -Do not flour the dough. Use oil to grease the pan and roll out the dough. And that’s it! The texture of your dough may look different than mine. That’s ok. Yours may be more elasitcy. Just keep rolling it out until it cooperates. If you use too much oil it might retract back too much after you roll it out. I suggest wiping off the excess oil with a paper towel or such.

25 Aug 11 Home Pizza making in Tokyo Japan – post dough & sauce 04

Important note: 220 C = 428 F (Not 500) I often make pizza for family and friends to avoid the high cost of delivery pizza in Japan, which runs about $ 45 for a large with two toppings. Most homes here do not have built-in convection ovens, so few people bake or make pizza at home, although specialized bread-making machines are popular. I happen to have a built-in convection oven. My friend was curious about pizza-making and wanted to record the process.
