Sugar factories

Industrial sectors
  • Sugar factories
Possible uses
  • Bulk good system in refining,
  • Bulk good system in packaging
  • Dust-separation systems also in the icing sugar sector
  • Product transportation in some areas such as refining, preparation, packaging,
  • Dust-separation systems
Product characteristics
  • Sugar is in crystal form
  • Mechanically aggressive
  • Sugar is also hygroscopic
Special characteristics
  • Electrostatic charging occurs and earthing is therefore necessary
Primary use
  • Materials: Cr Ni steels
  • Pipe diameter: Product transportation 150 – 200 mm, Return air 80 – 450 mm
  • Wall thicknesses: s=1 = return air, s = 2 mm = product
