A juice clarifier with turbulence reduction devices: Results of first industrial trials † [Full subscriber]

Optimisation of juice clarifiers has been the subject of multiple studies that have led to the development of a number of efficient designs. Computer-aided simulations of the clarifiers using various CFD packages demonstrated that the presence of turbulent eddies were responsible for efficiency reduction. The clarification process is especially important for Louisiana sugar mills due to the climatic conditions and the type of soil that lead to elevated mud levels. With increased demand for higher quality sugar and continuous efforts to reduce inversion losses, the improvement in clarifier operation is timely. A new design of trayless juice clarifier has been…
