Today’s production requirements – how material selection and innovative design contribute to their fulfilment* [Full subscriber]

Abstract For many years, the materials used for sugar production equipment were selected based on criteria such as material strength, corrosion resistance, availability and current prices. Today, additional requirements have to be considered, which are defined by the location where the equipment is to be installed. Examples include food safety (hygiene), operational reliability and maintainability. Material selection enhanced by innovative design allows meeting the highest requirements regarding process optimisation and productivity while also ensuring low wear and tear of the components, low maintenance, and a long service life. This paper gives examples to explain the selection of materials in view…
