Improving pan stage performance by on-line monitoring of C seed grainings using the ITECA Crystobserver

This project will investigate the use of the ITECA Crystobserver to monitor the crystal development in the C seed pan. The Crystobserver is a high definition video pan microscope which provides on-line measurement of crystal numbers, mean aperture and coefficient of variation with the capability to measure crystals as small as 5 microns. It offers the potential to improve consistency and quality of the C seed crystals, which will improve the operations and performance of the whole stage and thereby improve sugar yields.
