Advantage of Using Sugar Processing Chemicals

The use of process chemicals in the manufacture of raw sugar has evolved rapidly over the past thirty years. Innovations in every phase of the manufacturing process have been widely reported with varying degrees of success. Yet while one mill can show improvements resulting in direct economics benefits, there another mill that can show that thy do not work. With this obvious disparity there is often lack of confidence in process chemicals.

The result is that they are often inadequately used and improperly applied. Process chemicals do work, but there are multitudes if ever changing operational factors that alter the performance and hence the intended result. Often times factors beyond the control of the mill are the culprit briefly type of soil variety of cane method of harvesting, time between cutting and processing and even the weather dictate the conditions under which the mill must operate within the mill itself,mechanical problems leading to inefficient processing affect the quality of the product from grinding through final molasses exhaustion. If process chemicals are in use but not adjusted to compensate for the abnormal conditions,

they are very often blamed for not working. In some mills is common practice to feed chemicals only when there is a recognized problem and to stop feeding when it is behaved that the problem is resolved. And in the extreme then use may be discontinued because it was perceived that they did not work. It is extremely important to recognize that process chemicals should be used continuously without interruption in order achieve additions sucrose recovery.

Application rate should be adjusted to correspond to changed in mill conditions as determined by proper analytical method but their usage should never be stopped on the belief that money will be saved in the end. Testing evaluation and data gathering should become routine in the daily operations of the mill. For example in one mill six different points are sampled and a 24-hour composite of each sample point to analyzed for dextran.

By trending historical data, the mill can predicate anticipated operational difficulties. This type of sampling and testing procedure should be expanded to serve as early warning of changed throughout the production process so that appropriate actions can be taken. By interpreting test data and identifying changes in the process stream, for whatever reason, process chemicals can be used to the mill advantage.
