The cane juice extraction for the sugar production can be done
by mills or diffusers
The mill tandem is composed generally of 4 to 7 mill units
Each unit is a set of 3 rolls. Sometimes exists a fourth roll that
executes the forced feeding
Its actioning is provided by steam turbines, electric motors or
hydraulic devices

IMBIBITION
The imbibition may be simple or compound
The quantity of water to be added to the cane is directly
proportional to the fiber content of the cane, between 200 to
250% of fiber
As the value of the fiber is a difficult parameter to establish,
generally is used 25 to 30% of the total weight of the cane
The temperature is an important parameter. Never may exceed
the 65 C degrees due to the effect of dilution of wax and
dextrines
There is a big commitment between the quantity of water added
to the cane to improve the extraction and the energic balance
of the total process

Pol Extraction
The motricity of the pol extraction process is the sugar
concentration difference among the broken cells and the
imbibition juice
Directly acting over the extraction as well, are the pressure of
the mills, the temperature of the imbibition water, the fiber
content, the height of the cane mattress, etc
The saccharose that cannot be recovered at the mills is a direct
loss. It goes to the boilers to be burned and never more can be
recovered

Efficiency of Pol Extraction. Comments
For each 1% of strange matter that enters to the sugar process,
its lost 1,5 Kg of sugar by ton. of processed cane
The preparation index defines the result of the preparing of the
cane to be crushed. 90% is a good index
For each unit of difference between the purity of the mixed
juice and the purity of the primary juice its lost 2,5 Kg of sugar
by ton. of mixed juice entering at the factory
The extraction at the first mill must be between 50 to 70%
The humidity of the bagasse must be between 48 to 50%
The pol of the bagasse at the end of the last mill must be as low
as posible. 2.0 is a good value
The mills area must be an aseptic place by the use of hot water,
steam and chemical products

Milling Plant Control


Results of the Automation (1)
Better energic efficiency
Control over the complete process
Increase of the industrial efficiency
Conspicuous improvement on sugar quality (color, humidity,
filter easibility, etc)
Reduction in losses and acquaintance of what are its causes
Increase of the accomplishment with the technological
standards for the sugar
Better condensate recovering at the heat interchanger devices
Raising of the operators technical level
More easibility for the maintenance tasks: the equipment are
being monitored

Milling Plant Control


Results of the Automation (2)
Possibility of establishing one operation strategy for every
situation of the factory without interference among the areas
Centralization of the operation. Better taking of decision
process
Conspicuous increase of the real information of the process
Better profit of the installed facilities
Increase of the operators safety
Allows the integration between the process and the laboratory
using the on-line analysis as a tool for the process operation
Reduction in the energy consumption allowing one cogeneration strategy

Milling Plant Control


Results of the Automation (3)
Allows the installation of one Enterprise Management System,
integrating the corporate and the process networks of the
company
Increase on the capacity of the factory by the reduction in time
losses and by the increase of the industrial efficiency
