SRI Chute Height Sensors measure the height of bagasse in a Donnelly chute above the mill, and is typically used in the control system for the flow of bagasse through a sugarcane crushing mill or, for the first mill, to control speed of the prepared cane feed elevator.

The height is measured via stainless steel electrodes installed in the chute wall. By measuring conductivity to determine the presence of material at each electrode, chute height control is an important regulating component that evens out bagasse flow through the mill. Its output signals are used to control feed rate, giving maximum sugar extraction, lower mill stress and reduced power use.

SRI Dbrix Transducers are essential components of pan stage automation including batch vacuum pans, continuous vacuum pans and seed conditioning in cane sugar mills and refineries.

The SRI Dbrix Transducer measures radio-frequency impedance changes (from which conductivity and therefore brix can be inferred), and was developed specifically for brix control in sugar mills and refineries. It works best for high and low purity materials above 50°Bx such as refinery liquors, massecuite, syrups and molasses.

SRI Milset Software is an interactive, screen-based program used by milling engineers to determine optimum mill settings and to analyse and predict the operation of a milling unit.

Milset is available exclusively from SRI and requires an annual licence fee to access the program.

SMRI Colour and Turbidity Meters provide real time monitoring of clarifier performance including online measurement of colour and turbidity in sugar mill and sugar refinery process streams.

Typically, these meters are used to measure the characteristics of clarified juice or evaporator supply juice (ESJ), evaporator syrup, and sugar melt through to fine liquor.

SRI Jigger Tube Systems maximise heat transfer in batch and continuous vacuum pans. Jigger pipe systems have been used for many years as a circulation aid for heating, boiling and evaporating high-viscosity liquids in enclosed vessels.

The SRI system is in use in over 80 continuous and vacuum pans worldwide and has been engineered to never block with solidified massecuite or be manually cleaned, even during emergency shutdown.
