Sugar Cane Industry Solutions
This process breaks the sugar cane apart releasing the raw juice from the fibers.
Having extracted the raw juice, impurities like fibers, mud, rocks, sand and minerals need to be removed from the juice.
Clean juice moves through multiple evaporators heated by exhaust steam until it becomes syrup at 65%-70% solid content.
