Improved crystallisation in cane sugar mills with updated strategies and equipment* [Full subscriber]

Abstract Changing market conditions are forcing cane sugar factories to find ways of improving the quality of the produced sugar, increasing the sugar output, and, if the location permits, developing alternative uses of the bagasse besides sugar production. Numerous process details from crystallisation, which are commonly applied in beet sugar factories, but not yet considered to be state of the art in the cane sugar industry, have in recent years been implemented in cane sugar factories. The achieved improvements affect different performance parameters. Progressive automation of the crystallisation process combined with the production of seed massecuite by cooling crystallisation yields…
