Recommendations on how to increase the sugar beet pulp press efficiency [Full subscriber]

It is generally much cheaper to remove water from wet pulp mechanically by pressing rather than by thermal drying. Therefore beet pulp presses should be able to extract as much water as possible from the pulp to be dried. Drying pulp without pressing would be economically unsustainable because of the excessive energy consumption. Therefore the profitability of a factory depends on the mechanical dewatering, whose efficiency depends both on machine performance and on wet pulp quality, which plays a fundamental role in the control of the total operational costs (TOC).With particular reference Babbini presses, this article deals with both factors.…
