Production of rock sugar with HEINKEL centrifuges
It is hard to imagine our food without sugar. The wide range of sugar types covers crystal sugar, raw cane sugar, sugar syrup as well as large crystalline rock sugar. Sugar cane from tropical regions as well as sugar beet grown in temperate latitudes are the main sources of the raw material for this application.
For the production of rock sugar, a demanding production process is necessary. To ensure that this process can be implemented smoothly, HEINKEL has developed special centrifuges fulfilling different requirements. The efficient, fully automatic operating centrifuges meet the high quality standards of the food industry ensuring optimum results regarding throughput, washing result and product quality.
The production process of rock sugar
Sugar is available in many different dosage forms. It can be distinguished not only by the type of raw material, for example cane sugar or beet sugar, but also by its shape, for example as cubes, crystal or candy. For the production of rock sugar, the vertical peeler centrifuges with bottom discharge from HEINKEL are ideally suited. Different fractions in the range from 2 mm to 25 mm are being processed. After completing the crystallisation process, which can last several days, the main tasks of the centrifuge are washing the rock sugar crystals and spinning off the mother liquor followed by dry spinning.
