Topic: Product presentation: Next generation OVC
A new generation of efficient coolers. Perfectly equipped for constant crystal growth and maximum yield. Cooling crystallisers are used in beet and cane sugar factories and sugar refineries worldwide for the crystallisation of sugar from low-purity crystal suspensions (massecuite); they are economical and produce excellent results. In developing its cooling crystallisers for low-raw massecuites, BMA has given careful thought to the theoretical principles underlying the process. BMA cooling crystallisers are employed with great success in both the beet and the cane sugar industries. Today, they only come as vertical units. Find more about the OVC cooling crystaliser in this product presentation. Use the Q&A session to ask your question.

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

Topic: Safety inspections for centrifugal baskets: EDDY CURRENT testing.
In many countries, centrifugals are installations that require inspection and as such they must be checked at regular intervals. Regardless of any legal requirements, we as a centrifugal manufacturer advise our customers to have their centrifugal baskets inspected regularly by certified technical staff. Inspections focus on the openings, the weld seams and the basket hubs in centrifugals.
