Inside the Belgian kiln

Inside the Belgian kiln
Inside this Belgian Kiln at the Dunaskin Brickworks, Waterside, Ayrshire. A continuous kiln and a variation on the Hoffmann Kiln, it was intended to produce less discoloured and overburned bricks by separating the burning coals from the bricks by using fuel grates across the floor. The dampers and flues are controlled from below unlike the Hoffmann.

This particular kiln comprises 24 chambers and was built in 1935 by William Cleghorn of Newmains. Production ended here in 1976.
