Involved in the production of sugar from two types of crops; sugarcane and sugar beet, we, at Almoiz Industries Limited not only believe in the production of high quality sugar but maintaining and developing long-lasting relationships with all our stakeholders. At Almoiz we have adopted the latest “Diffuser” technology instead of conventional milling. This diffuser can be utilized for the extraction of juice from Sugar Cane as well as Sugar Beet. Our crushing units, post diffuser, are based on the most modern technologies. We are equipped with automated milling tandems with “Mill Max” (cane crushing technology) which is built on innovative French design.
The juice purification and clarification at Almoiz is done according to international procedures and standards. Proper attention is paid in the usage and selection of the best quality process chemicals in the process house. As a policy it is ensured that all the chemicals are food grade and that they conform to international standards to cater to all our clients' needs.
Almoiz is also the pioneer in installing the latest “Falling Film Evaporators”, which are highly efficient as compared to the Conventional “Roberts”. They efficiently transfer the heat from the steam to the juice and reduce the amount of steam required for the process thus decreasing steam consumption and eventually saving bagasse for power generation.
The process of sugar crystallization is done at the pan stations. Pan Automation has also helped Almoiz in achieving the efficiency targets. We pay special attention at the pan boiling station as it determines the type of sugar to be produced. The company produces several grades of sugar and the production range varies between below 45 ICUMSA to below 100 ICUMSA.
For good quality of sugar the performance of the pan station has to be very efficient. That is the reason why we have focused a lot on the Pan Automation. The Pan Automation has improved the operational efficiencies of massecuite boiling. Boiling of strikes consistently with a specific Brix profile for each pan has improved massecuite quality. There is good control in crystal quality and crystal yield. Such procedures are adopted that ensure complete pan boiling monitoring with data record for checking the performance of pan station. At Almoiz Industries Limited the Pan Automation was carried out by renowned German experts and is running successfully.We have installed the latest Vacuum and Condensing systems. The state-of-the-art Refine Centrifugal machines are imported from Sweden, Japan and China. The sugar hoppers, dryers, graders and elevators are designed with such materials to prevent any contamination due to the presence of the ferrous material. High intensity magnets are also installed to catch the ferrous material. The state of the art sugar packing enables to ensure smooth and consistent filling, stitching and conveying of packed sugar in the sugar warehouses.
For consistency in quality and efficient operations, the plant is monitored and controlled by Distribution Control Systems (DCS). Most of the variables of the plant are managed and controlled from the Central Control Room (CCR). Automation has been introduced in almost all the areas of the plant.
In addition to sugarcane preparation technologies, Almoiz has also installed a separate line for the preparation of the Sugar Beet. This line is based upon state of the art technology and includes latest equipment such as the Drum Washer, Stone Catcher, Weed Catchers, Jet Washer and the Slicers.
