High filling of centrifugals with on-line colour measurement* [Full subscriber]

Abstract Optimizing performance of the A-centrifugals is very important in sugar production. The way centrifugation is conducted has a high impact on the production costs. A maximum filling, minimum spray washing time for each massecuite quality, and a good mechanical control of the centrifugals are three important aspects of how to reach the best yield for each centrifugal. When the operators can see the colour profile of the sugar during discharge of each centrifugal in real time, they have the necessary information to understand the importance of controlling the different parameters and their awareness is increased, making it possible to…
