Sugarcane growing and harvest – Sugar mill processing line modern

Harvest takes place rain or shine, and the often muddy sugar cane fields necessitate harvesters mounted on tracks instead of wheels which get stuck in the muck. Moving through the rows, the harvesters stand up the cane and cut it a few inches above the ground. Sugar cane is a perennial grass, meaning it doesn’t have to be replanted every year. A new shoot will sprout from the cut stalks of cane for the next harvest. Typically, farmers will harvest crop from one planting for 3-5 years.

Once the cane is cut, rotating arms strip off leaves and undergrowth and move the stalks though cutters that chop them into smaller pieces. A conveyer arm transfers the stalk pieces to a tractor pulling a large hopper-style trailer.

Sugarcane is harvested by mechanical harvester which move along the rows of cane removing the leafy tops of the cane and cutting the stalk into short pieces or “billets”. Billets are loaded into bins which are towed alongside the harvester. When full, the bins are taken by road or tramway to the sugar mill.The field capacity of mechanical cane harvesters varies with the size (2.5 to 4 ha per day of 8 hours.

From Sugar Cane to Real Sugar

The cane is transported to a nearby raw sugar mill. Samples taken from each load to test sugar content establish the price paid to the farmer. Conveyer belts then move the sugar cane through the mill and a series of steps to extract the sucrose (sugar) from the sugar cane. The result is raw sugar, which is not yet food grade. This raw sugar is transported to a refinery to finish the process. At the refinery it is washed, crystallized, dried and packaged.

From the farm to your pantry, the result is pure, real sugar

Sugarcane mill

A sugar cane mill is a factory that processes sugar cane to produce raw or white sugar.
Used cane sugar factory with daily milling capacity of 7,200 tons of cane / 1,200 tons of raw sugar production. The factory has state-of-the-art technology and is controlled with a computerized control system from the crushing plant to the boiling house to the power plant. The factory is also equipped with a separate food-grade sugar processing plant to produce natural white sugar and turbinado with packaging equipment. Critical factory inventory spares parts and machinery is also available.
The power cogeneration plant is equipped with three boilers. Boiler #1 & #2 are Riley Stoker coal-fired boilers, Boiler 1 is 125 klb per hour at 900 psi and Boiler 2 is 125 klb per hour at 900 psi. Boiler 3 is a Detroit Stoker coal-fired boiler, rated at 290 klb per hour at 425 psi. The boilers provide steam to run one 20MW GE steam turbine and generator and one 16.5MW Mitsubishi steam turbine and generator. Power Plant inventory spares are also available.
