This paper discusses the optimization of adsorbents for sugar refinery crystallization systems to improve efficiency and reduce costs, with significant reductions in adsorbent and filter aid usage, product turbidity, and sweetwater losses observed during extended trials.

The production of high-quality fine liquor for the sugar refinery crystallization system is crucial for ensuring top-notch refined sugar. Adsorbents play a key role in this purification process, with regenerable and disposable options available. A study conducted at four refineries compared the use of a newly formulated non-regenerable adsorbent to the traditional carbon-based adsorbents. The results showed significant improvements in various aspects of the refining process, including reduced adsorbent and filter aid consumption, decreased product turbidity, and enhanced filtration characteristics. Further trials are being conducted to explore the potential benefits of using the new adsorbent in other processing schemes.
