Syrup Clarification

Sugar products must reflect the time and care taken to create them. That’s why our equipment reduces impurities and improve sugar crystals to produce the best syrup clarification possible.


THE FPE GLOBAL SOLUTION

One of the greatest challenges for the sugar industry is in the clarification process, an essential step in the purification of cane juice prior to evaporation and crystallisation. Impurities can hinder the physical appearance of sugar crystals, making purifying processes an integral element of sugar production.

The FPE Global Syrup Clarification Process removes turbidity, waxes, gums and colloidal particles from evaporator syrup, targeting impurities and ensuring maximum removal without slowing your process down.

As our systems are bespoke, we can tailor them to your exact operation. Below is information on the general operating parameters for the FPE Syrup Clarification Process.

Contact our team to find out the specific solutions we can develop for you.

 

  • Improved circulation in the pans, reducing the pan cycle time by some 10%
  • Reduced steam usage and increases the boiling house capacity
  • Less wash water required during centrifugation, improving recovery by 1%
  • Brighter sugar crystals thanks to reduced syrup cloudiness (turbidity)
  • Decolourant to remove colour from crystals (our engineering team can help you to adjust decolourant to achieve the best results for your process)
  • Design that works with low brix syrup from the penultimate effect evaporator, eliminating the need for the heat exchangers
  • The latest in automation controls (process and chemical dosing are automatically controlled via a PLC based control panel with a colour touchscreen HMI)

 

Syrup brix 40 to 60 can be accommodated
Liquor temperature 80 to 85 oC
pH Typically 6.5 to 7.5
Quantity of scum produced Typically 400 litres per 100 tonnes sugar solids
Phosphoric Acid at 85% concentration 43 litres per 1000 tonnes cane
Hydrated Lime 72 kg per 1000 tonnes cane
Flocculant 2.2 kg per 1000 tonnes cane
Decolourant (optional) Typically 45 kg per 1000 tonnes cane
Space Required For a 7500 TCD factory a total of 8 bays of 6m x 6m across 2 floor levels would provide a comfortable area. This would also include a control room.
