The Ukrainian PAO Salivonkovsky Sugar Factory had set itself a number of goals: upgrade its drying plant for beet pulp, integrate a new fluidised-bed steam dryer (WVT), and increase the beet processing rate. Quite a list of items – leading to a whole range of questions.
To find answers to some fundamental questions, BMA was commissioned to prepare a comprehensive energy study in mid-2016. Following an inventory and assessment of the sugar factory’s capacities, we identified feasible actions that could be taken to increase its beet processing rate from 6,630 to 7,200 t/d. The study also looked at integrating a fluidised-bed steam dryer (WVT) for drying the beet pulp.
