Centrifugation is a very important process in sugar plant where in the massecuite (Mixture of Crystals & Syrup) flows from the vessel in to the centrifuge machines and crystals are separated from the syrup by centrifugal force.
At a 10,000 TCD customer’s place, Amtech has installed SCAT on ThyssenKrupp make centrifuge machine of 1750 kg.
Amtech offers proven smart solution SCAT (Sugar Centrifuge Automated Technology) for the Sugar Centrifuge. It is an automation package consisting of Regenerative Variable Frequency Drive and intelligent process controller with state-of-the-art algorithm. We offer solution for the machines ranging from 750 kg to 2250 kg for the new machines as well as for the retrofit solution.
The SCAT system improved process interlocks and provided enhanced safety to the centrifuge machine. Also reduced overall process time resulting in enhanced productivity and smooth operation.
Amtech also integrated other centrifuge machines to improve productivity and to reduce overall energy consumption. Provision of Machine interlocks ensured better efficiency and less mechanical hazard.
The conventional control systems employed to monitor & control the operation of the centrifuge machines suffer from the drawbacks like increased down time due to repeated failures, higher maintenance cost, low production due to more cycle time, lack of motor protection & process interlocks. Apart from these, quite often the customer looses precious time and production during running crushing season for want of qualified after sale service.
The Amtech SCAT System is robust in performance and rugged in design as compared to the conventional control systems and other systems available in the market.
