Fives Cail offers purification technologies for cane and beet factories and raw sugar refineries:
For cane, Fives Cail designs Short retention Time Clarifiers and rotary vacuum filters, which enable for a maximum efficiency for processing mixed juice and to clarify the juice before evaporation.
The Short Retention Time Clarifier principle is based on a simple trayless design.
Original research showed that very high settling rates of flocculated mud could be achieved with mill juice. In South Africa more recent experience with juice from cane diffusion has improved the design technology.
For beet factories and raw sugar refineries, Fives Cail designs SERG type vertical purification plants operating at hot temperatures that enable an excellent separation of non sugars.
