Key Benefits

  • Higher throughput (up to 50% increase)
  • Lower clarified juice turbidities at higher throughput (<50 -100 NTU achievable)
  • Less fine fiber carry over through clarified juice screens resulting in reduced backend centrifugal maintenance
  • Simpler operation and supervision (one flocculent addition point)
  • Lower sucrose loss by inversion (juice residence time < 30 mins)
  • Reduced color development
  • Reduced purity drop in mud (mud residence time < 60 mins)
  • Easy viewing of mud levels (mud windows fitted to side of vessel)
  • Lower juice volume (shorter liquidation)
  • Reduced lime usage
  • Improved mud scraper design -> heavier mud
  • Lower maintenance
  • Quicker recovery from upset
  • Approximate maximum throughputs under normal operating conditions.
