The Efficient Use of High Pressure and Process Steam course covers energy use within a raw sugar factory and delivers integrated coverage of high and low pressure steam usage during raw sugar manufacture.
Starting from the factory steam balance and the high and low pressure steam cycles, the course progresses through the options available in juice heating, evaporation, and pan stage operation to improve steam economy. The effects on other parts of factory operations, such as the cooling water cycle are included.
Approximately two thirds of the course addresses the low-pressure side of factory operation. New sugar industry technology options are also presented.
