Mill retrofit could improve efficiency
The six-roll mill is used almost exclusively by the Australian industry for juice extraction because it achieves higher throughput and performance than most other mill designs. However, it has the disadvantage of higher ...
Overseas factories share options for efficiency
It is well known that farmers like to look over the fence to see what innovations their neighbours are up to. And while it is nowhere near as easy for millers to "look over the fence", a current project looking inside ...
Improving mill efficiency through rapid analysis methods
This project has sought to develop turn-key, diode array benchtop NIR spectroscopy systems for the rapid analysis of sugar factory products.
Benefits of better preparation
Most Australian factories are not achieving the cane preparation benchmark of 90% pol in open cells. While preparation is strongly linked to power consumption, in many cases the problem is not that there is insufficient ...
Learning from the overseas experience
SRA has approved funding for this project to commence in the latter half of 2015, which will look to bring some of the efficiencies of overseas milling operations to benefit Australian factories.
