Labor-Intensive Technologies in Sugar Production, an Economic Evaluation

Labor-Intensive Technologies in Sugar Production, an Economic Evaluation

Forsyth, D.J.C.  1976.  The article reports in brief the result of a major program of applied research on the economics of sugar making technology, directed specifically at making a comprehensive and definitive evaluation of earlier recommendations that labor-intensive techniques were to be preferred. Labor-Intensive Technologies in Sugar Production, an Economic Evaluation. Sugar y Azucar, August 1976:34-35.

Application of the Continuous Vacuum Pan to the Third Strikes

Application of the Continuous Vacuum Pan to the Third Strikes

Riviere, M. and Pithois, P.  1976.  A continuous vacuum pan was installed by Fives-Cail Babcock at the Quartier Francais Sugar Factory, Reunion, during the 1973 crushing season. In these experiments, the B and C sugars are mingled with runoffs from strikes of higher purities constituting magmas which are used respectively as footing for the A and B massecuites and only the A sugar is sold.

Application of Statistical Methods as Used in Experiments for the Evaluation of Flocculants

Application of Statistical Methods as Used in Experiments for the Evaluation of Flocculants

Jones, E.G. and Lopez-Oña, J.V.  1976.  A statistical approach to experiments in a sugar refinery will frequently force a more complete and comprehensive evaluation of the experimental objectives, and lead to a more precise experiment that would otherwise have been performed, such as the evaluation of flocculant performance in the laboratory and clarifiers.

Alcohol for Gasoline from Sugarcane

Alcohol for Gasoline from Sugarcane

Dr. Humbert, R.P.  1976.  The first large plant built to produce alcohol directly from sugarcane was scheduled to go on stream in November 1975, in the state of Paraiba, Brazil. The distillery GIASA is designed to produce 100,000 liters of alcohol per day. Brazil currently produces over 700,000,000 liters of alcohol from molasses produced by the sugar industry.

Some Aspects of Sugar Boiling

Some Aspects of Sugar Boiling

Jenkins, G.H.  1976.  Sugar boiling is essentially a matter of forming the required amount of crystals and regulating supersaturation to avoid formation of further crystals and to give a final sugar of uniform grain size. Some Aspects of Sugar Boiling. Sugar News 52:53-55.

Determining Cost of Steam and Electricity in a Sugar Factory

Determining Cost of Steam and Electricity in a Sugar Factory

Sto. Domingo, J.P.  1976.  The analytical considerations and methods of calculation used in determining the cost of steam and electricity at Victorias is presented. It is an attempt to arrive at some acceptable cost figures, taking into account technical aspects pertinent to the production and usage of the steam and electricity in relation to the various equipment using these two sources of energy.

The Core Sampler

The Core Sampler

Hebert, R.M.  1976.  Presented are the experiences of the St. Martin Sugar Cooperative, Inc with an innovative technique introduced to the Louisiana Sugar Industry for the first time on a commercial basis – the core sampler. It is located adjacent to the scale but alongside the flow of traffic. The core sampler has contributed to achieving better quality control for the mill operation and more equitable payment to its farmer members. The Core Sampler. Sugar Journal, March 1976:23-26.

The Continuous Vacuum Pan

The Continuous Vacuum Pan

Petri, P.H.  1976.  A 6-month’s study of a F-C (Forced Circulation) Crystallizer was completed. A comprehensive evaluation of the data obtained was presented to the Meeting of the Sugar Industry Technologists in Miami. A careful study of the data obtained was made to determine how the regression analyses, integrals, graphs and other data could be utilized to continue the project of continuous crystallization.
