sugarcane juice clarification
Sugar beet and sugarcane produced sugar by various processing, including collect the cane juice by milling and diffusion, sugarcane juice clarification, concentration of the juice by evaporation, crystallization and sugar crystals drying. After all these process, we get the raw sugars, while cane sugar does not strictly need refining, sugar from beet is always need refining process to get white refined sugar to be used in households and used as ingredient in soft drinks and foods.
Our polymers could be used in sugarcane juice clarification process. After the extraction, mixed juice from the extraction mills need to be purified by heating, and adding some lime and flocculants. The lime will be used as a suspension of calcium hydroxide in a sucrose solution, which will form a calcium saccharate compound. The enzymes in the juice will be removed by heat and lime and the PH will increasd from a natural acid level of 5 - 6.5 to a neutral level. When heating over 100°C, the neutralized juice treated with flocculants is pumped to a clarification vessel where the mud settles and the clarified liquor overflows which could be used to the evaporation stage for further processing of juice clarification.
