Designed to achieve very fine preparation of sugar cane by separating the fibres and opening the cell wall efficiently. This allows the subsequent extraction process to maximise the removal of the sucrose bearing juice from the prepared cane.
The Vertical Shredder of Fives Fletcher has been designed by operating mill engineers to meet their own very demanding specifications. The rotor design gives complete coverage over the width of the machine. The swing hammers overlap each other slightly to ensure that there is total swept area coverage even when worm.
Excellent cane preparation: Maximum sucrose extraction, minimum loss
Excellent fibre particle size distribution
Preparation index between 90-92%
Increased throughput capacity
Improved final bagasse moisture
Higher imbibition efficiencies at each stage
Lower mill absorbed power levels
Improved boiler performance
Consistly higher bagasse densities
Lower bagasse pol loss
