Band 7.5 IELTS Task-1, a process that is used to manufacture bricks
The Diagram Illustrates the process that is used to manufacture bricks for the building industry.
Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
The diagram shows the way in which bricks are manufactured for construction purposes. Overall, the process consists of seven stages, beginning with digging up the clay and ending with the final product’s delivery.
In the first stage, the clay is dug up from the underground using a huge digger that is then placed on a metal grid on the roller, which shreds the clay into smaller pieces. Following this, it involves adding sand and water to the clay mixture then it can be either placed in a mold or wire cutter to obtain bricks.
In the next stage, these bricks are placed in the drying oven for about one to two days. Once the bricks are dry, they undergo heating and cooling treatment. This is done by heating moderately and then at high temperature (ranging between 200° and 1300°) in the kiln and subsequently transferring to the cooling chamber for 48 – 72 hours. Finally, the bricks are packed and delivered to their destinations.
