This style of vertical kiln is gradually replacing many of the traditional "intermittent" brick kilns in Vietnam; this design of kiln runs continuously. The screw mechanism just visible in the arch at the bottom of the kiln supports a stack of bricks as it works its way through the kiln from top to bottom; the stack is dropped inch by inch to reveal finished bricks at the bottom of the stack, while unfired bricks and coal are gradually added to the top of the stack. Solid bricks take two days to work through the kiln; perforated bricks are done in a day.
