Optimize your sugar production with process instrumentation

Innovative, robust and easy-to-clean technologies during production and maintenance

Sugar production is a cost-sensitive business. Robust, durable and high-quality process instruments are of utmost importance because they increase performance and ensure constant quality. Sugar processes can be optimized without compromising product quality. Robust, easy-to-clean innovative technologies guarantee high plant availability and reduce the risk of equipment damage during maintenance.

Our offering

Endress+Hauser offers a complete palette of approved flow, level, temperature, pressure and analytical instruments to solve your challenges in the demanding sugar production business. Our instruments are designed and manufactured to withstand cleaning processes during maintenance periods and in harsh production processes.

  • Consistent product quality and taste

  • Stable processing parameters (Brix, etc.)

  • Safety for your installed base (pumps, flowmeters, etc.)

  • Reduced outage


Level measurement in the evaporation process

One of the most challenging applications in sugar production is the level measurement in the evaporator. A low clarified juice level may damage an entire batch and cause an unscheduled outage.

Radar technology mounted in a bypass system ensures robust, stable and reliable level monitoring.

Optimize your differential pressure measurement

Harsh production environments and cleaning processes frequently damage the differential pressure system in evaporators.

Our expertise in the field

Our innovative electronic differential pressure system is a reliable one-to-one replacement.

  • Maximum robustness paired with abrasion resistance and vacuum tightness thanks to the ceramic cell of Deltabar FMD71. In addition, Deltabar offers faster installation, less maintenance and downtime as well as fewer spare part warehousing.

Keep pH measurement within safe limits

The optimal pH range in the crystallization process is 6.5 to 7.0, which ensures top-quality end products. Because of the low ionic strength of the water mixed with sugar, a glass electrode cannot be used.

We recommend our digital non-glass sensors with ISFET or enamel electrode combined with Memosens technology.

  • Identify the potential of using our digital non-glass pH sensor CPS77D with ISFET electrode.

  • Benefit from long-term stability and minimal maintenance using Ceramax CPS341D, the digital non-glass pH sensor with enamel electrode.

  • Increase process safety and simplify handling handling thanks to Memosens digital technology.

Brix concentration at the highest level

Syrup is produced in the evaporation phase with about 65° Brix. Reliable and accurate results at the right moment are key.
