Seed Crystal Conditioning Plants process sugar magma from continuous centrifugals to produce a seed crystal stream ready for crystal growth.
Small chips and fragments that are present in the sugar magma are removed through two processing steps: a controlled partial dissolution by creating a slightly undersaturated condition; and crystallisation of the sucrose in solution onto the parent crystals. The two processes are conducted in continuous flow equipment with full automation.
Benefits of Seed Crystal Conditioning Plants include:
- Supply of prepared sugar magma ready for crystal growth in batch or continuous pans
- Increased productivity and consistency in pan stage operations
- Increased uniformity of the crystals produced using the prepared seed crystals
- Improved purging of the produced massecuite
Design features of Seed Crystal Conditioning Plants include:
- Compact dissolution and crystallisation vessels
- Fully automated operation
- Easy cleaning procedures
- Suitable for installation at the centrifugal station or on the pan stage
- Low construction and maintenance costs
- Minimal supervision
- Continuous flow with easy adjustment of the controlled parameters
