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 given diagram describes how the bricks are made for the building industry. Overall there are seven processes in the production of bricks starting with the digging of clay and ending with the delivery of bricks.

First of all, the clay needed to make bricks is dug from the earth with the help of a digger. Then, the dug clay is spread on the metal grid and placed above the roller. Next, sand and water is added to the clay and this mixture is either poured into the mould or undergoes wire cutting to make bricks.

Following this, the bricks are placed for drying in the oven for 1-2 days. Subsequently, they are first heated in a kiln at a moderate temperature of 200 degree – 980 degree C and then at a high temperature of 870 – 1300 degree C respectively. The bricks are then cooled for 48-72 hours. Finally, the bricks are packed and delivered to their destination by trucks.

      It should be ‘are’. These are essays written by students. There will be some mistakes. That is why they are graded at 7, 7.5 or 8.
