Use of a purge sensor to improve performance and reduce the need for supervision of batch centrifugals
Batch centrifugals that operate like a spinning washing machine are used widely to separate raw sugar crystals from the mother molasses. This project will trial a sensor supplied by Neltec Denmark to show when and how long to add wash water to the batch centrifugal, to purify the raw sugar crystals - a job that is usually done by a worker at the sugar mill, who judges the optimal time by watching and listening to each machine. This is an important step to tighter management of the centrifugal station and increased automation.
