A first 5,000 m² evaporator was delivered in late 2018, to be installed as the fourth effect. Thanks to the outstanding commitment of the SUTA team, the situation for assembly couldn’t be better. We are easily within schedule.
Three more new evaporators will be delivered at the end of 2019: two of them with a heating surface of 4,000 m² each, for effects 3A and 3B; the third with a heating surface of 3,000 m² for the fifth effect.
The benefits for the individual effects of installing these FFE together with the tried and tested juice distributor from BMA result from the small temperature differences and constant residence times. Colouration of the juice will be much lower and energy efficiency vastly improved.
A team of process engineers from BMA travelled to SUTA at the start of the campaign in early April 2019, for the commissioning of the first evaporator.
