Sugar Handling

Defining conveying requirements for the sugar industry

Conveying requirements for the sugar industry fall into two discrete categories. Reliable transport of the pulped sugar beet feed involves handling a sticky sludge with variable moisture content.

In contrast the granulated sugar product that forms the bulk of sugar industry output is:

  • Free-flowing
  • Hygroscopic
  • Has a closely defined specification
  • May cake, even in the absence of moisture
