Extraction of Sugarcane Juice

The cane is shredded and then passed through mills to squeeze out all the juice. The juice is then pumped to the to the process house, where it is first weighed for the purpose of process control.

Production of Brown Crystal Sugar

This stage comprises the following successive operations:

Brown sugar is considered natural and chemical free as for one to produce white sugar, the raw sugar has to be heated and phosphoric added.

Steam Generation and distribution

The crushed cane from which juice has been extracted is called bagasse. The bagasse is conveyed from the mills to the boiler house and burned directly as fuel in specially designed furnaces. The generation of steam for the total power and heating requirements of the factory will normally be derived from this fuel source.
