Analysis of milling operation with electro-hydraulic individual drives in the Ferrari Sugar Mill* [Full subscriber]

Abstract The Ferrari Sugar Mill tandem in Brazil is fully automated with variable speed for all the drives involved. The mills’ rollers are individually moved by electro-hydraulic drives (including the fourth roller in mill one), thus offering a great advantage to automate the mill in a very accurate way and to also measure the speed and torque in each of the rollers driven.  The speeds and the torque of each roller of five four rollers mills tandem were registered continuously, providing information on the power consumed in each roller, in each mill and in the whole tandem. The laboratory results…
