The current global trend of using more economical and ecological friendly products has influenced all types of businesses including construction and block manufacturing industries to look back to their products and to develop improved and innovative products with less cost and minimum embodied energy resulting in less lifecycle impact to environment. For thousands of years, clay bricks were used for construction of houses and buildings but now the culture is changing to faster, economical and eco-friendly products such as concrete and autoclave aerated concrete (AAC) products, said Managing Director Mr. Abraj Vettuparampil.
Explaining more about the company, he said, MASA, with its advanced German technology and 105 years of experience in concrete machine manufacturing has developed most efficient block making and Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) Plants with mass production capacities. Its advanced process engineering, long life, high product consistency, asset reliability and single standard for all machines supplied around the world has changed industry perception about quality and standards of machines used in the construction industry.
He added, another way MASA changed industry perception was by supplying mass production capacity machines. MASA block and paver plants can produce more than 90,000 concrete blocks having size 8"X4"X4" or 9000 square meters of interlocking paver or 15 kilometers of kerbstones at 85% efficiency on a daily basis. MASA Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) plants are also world renowned for its single line daily production capacity up to 1440 cubic meters of AAC products.
Discussing in details about MASA machines and its eco-friendly nature, he revealed, fly ash is a byproduct of coal power plants and was perceived as a waste material up to now. But MASA Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) plants can transform this waste material into light weight, environmental friendly building blocks with high acoustic resistance, dimensional accuracy, thermal resistance and thermal mass without any toxic gas content which can also be recycled completely. As both central and state governments are planning to establish more and more power plants to minimize our power thirst, high capacity MASA AAC plants are required to be installed around the country to mitigate the environmental impact of power plants through fly ash production and disposal.
Due to the unique combined properties of high thermal resistance and thermal mass, Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) blocks have high energy efficiency compared to other building products which will help to improve the energy rating of its buildings. Though AAC manufacturing is in practice in India for some time, the mass production capacity and 40 years life expectancy of MASA machines has rewritten the expectations about machines and standards in Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) manufacturing.
