Topic: Sucrose losses in a falling-film evaporator configuration in a cane sugar factory
Sucrose inversion due to high temperature and/or low pH and a long residence time in these conditions result in undetermined sucrose losses. One of the areas where high sucrose losses are expected to occur in a cane sugar factory is the juice evaporation station; especially factories which achieve high levels of steam efficiency and operate with evaporator types that tend to have longer residence-times.
In this webinar, Dr Omkar Thaval presents sucrose loss measurements across individual falling-film evaporators and the entire falling-film evaporator station. The measured sucrose losses are compared to the predicted sucrose losses and measured sucrose losses in other evaporator configuration (rising-film). The effect of juice composition, evaporator operating conditions and juice residence-time on sucrose losses are discussed. Dr Thaval also presents the increased revenue for sugar factories due to reduced sucrose losses across falling-film evaporator configuration
