Technology of the Rum Industry

Technology of the Rum Industry

Kampen, W.H.  1975.  The article presents a clear definition of Rum as defined in the labeling regulations of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Presented as well are the raw materials in the production of rum and their properties, the high-temperature short-time pasteurization of the mash, the fermentation, distillation and aging process employed and finally the disposal of distillery waste.

The Proper Selection of Chain in the Sugar Industry

The Proper Selection of Chain in the Sugar Industry

De Jahn, L.  1975.  There are many different demands placed on conveyor chains, ranging from heavy abrasion on the cane feeder tables to severe corrosion on the intermediate carrier chain, to a combination of both, as experienced on main cane carriers and on cascading conveyors during the cane-washing operation.

Granular Activated Carbon Economic Success for Sugar Decolorization

Granular Activated Carbon Economic Success for Sugar Decolorization

Foret, J.N. Jr., and Bernard, C.J.  1975.  In 1973, the South Coast Corporation replaced the decolorization process at the Georgia Refinery, which used powdered activated carbon with a granular carbon system. Since that time, the refinery has realized several benefits, including an improved product and an annual savings of over US$300,000.

Continuous Weighing of Bagasse Using a Nuclear Weigher

Continuous Weighing of Bagasse Using a Nuclear Weigher

Ravno, B.D., Scully, P.C., et.al.  1975. An Ohmart nuclea weigher, which contains an Americium radiation source was installed on a belt conveyor at the Felixton Sugar Mill in South Africa towards the end of the 1973-1974 crushing season and was calibrated and operated for approximately two months. A series of accuracy check tests were conducted and results were presented. Continuous Weighing of Bagasse Using a Nuclear Weigher. Sugar y Azucar, August 1975:30-34.

Australia's Research Institute Doubling Computer Capacity

Australia_s Research Institute Doubling Computer Capacity

--------------. 1975.  The Sugar Research Institute in Mackay, Queensland purchased a new computer, an IBM System/370 Model 115. The computer will be used for data processing associated with the development of a computer model of an entire sugar factory, a project which is designed to take much of the costly trial and error out of major steps in a sugar mill to increase economies and productivity. Australia’s Research Institute Doubling Computer Capacity. Sugar y Azucar, September 1975:41-43.

Utilization of the Distillery Slops for Continuous Propagation of Torula Yeast

Utilization of the Distillery Slops for Continuous Propagation of Torula Yeast

Aguinaldo, J.T.  1975.  Waste treatment in distilleries entails large amount of initial and operating expenses. Utilizing the slops for the propagation of yeast will reduce its pollution load for easier treatment and boost the income of the distillery. Torula yeast was selected because of its rapid multiplication which is three times as Baker’s yeast and distiller’s yeast. Utilization of the Distillery Slops for Continuous Propagation of Torula Yeast. Sugar News 51:354-356.

Waste Fuel Drying and the Energy Crisis2

Waste Fuel Drying and the Energy Crisis2

Boulet, W.P.  1975.  This article will show why a properly designed bagasse drying system is the best solution to both the auxiliary fuel problem and the air-pollution problem. How bagasse drying fits in with specific problems, including too little bagasse, too much bagasse, boiler operational flexibility, etc., plus installation payback on existing boilers and expected savings on new boilers. Waste Fuel Drying and the Energy Crisis. Sugar Journal, November 1975:8-11.

Waste Fuel Drying and the Energy Crisis

Waste Fuel Drying and the Energy Crisis

Boulet, W.P.  1975.  It was determined to devise a machine with which to utilize a smokestack heat to reduce moisture in the bagasse by bringing the hot gases in direct contact with it. The tests were set up to study the drying phenomena and to experiment with the furnace operation and design, including rate of combustion and grate area. Waste Fuel Drying and the Energy Crisis. Sugar Journal, March 1975:40-47.
