How bricks are made

Pat writes – “This week’s video comes to us courtesy of the South Carolina Educational TV Network. We found them because they produced a video for one of our member companies. We got a bunch of videos from them this week which we’ll parse out over the coming weeks and months. This one takes place at NAM Member Carolina Ceramics in Columbia, South Carolina. It follows the brick making process from the piles of clay and its mixing and extrusion all the way through the kiln which bakes it at up to 2200 degrees. It comes out the other end, well, thick as a brick. It’s way cool to see it. From there it goes to houses and sidewalks and patios in your neighborhood.” [via] – Link.
