The brick destacker is an equipment which can be integrated to a brickplant. It unstacks automatically packs of bricks from the kiln cars, at the output of the kiln. It is made of a gantry crane equipped with one or two clamps, which have a wide working area. The clamp picks up packs of bricks by hydraulic clamping. The brick packs can be setdown on a palletizing conveyor, or directly on a truck. The brick destacker has a capacity up to 40 tons per hour.
