ADVANTAGES OF THE DIFFUSER OVER A MILL TANDEM:

 

Higher Sugar Extraction

The pol% in bagasse obtainable with a diffuser is around 0.6%, in most cases lower than 1%, meanwhile the pol% values range attainable with a mill tandem is 1.6 to 2.0%. A reduction of 2.5 to 3% of 1% of pol% bagasse, represents a profit increase of US$ 1,100 per thousand tons of processed cane per season. (Value based on an average sugar price of 400 US$/ton).



Lower Power Consumption

The diffuser uses a small portion of mechanical power, which is required in a conventional mill tandem. A comparison between an electrified six four-roll mill tandem and a diffuser shows a power saving around 65% with the diffuser.



Lower Maintenance Costs

The only elements that require periodical maintenance are:


♦ The main chains (pins and bushes);

♦ Pump internals;


Furthermore, there is no need to dismount the whole installation at the end of the crushing season, different from mill tandem´s installations, reducing the maintenance costs in, approximately, 60%.

 

Lower Operating Costs

Only one operator per shift controls the diffuser and the only element that requires direct attention is the drying mill.

The costs of lubrication and welding are cut down up to 20%, mainly in the drying system area.

The costs of chemicals used for juice clarification and filtration are drop to 50%.

 

High Operating Flexibility

The diffuser maintains a constant performance in a wide range of capacity (50 - 120%), even with uneven cane supply or variable fiber content.

The diffuser can outperform a mill tandem in terms of extraction, even when heavily overloaded.

 

High Operating Reliability

All moving parts are subjected to low mechanical stresses, thus reducing chances of mechanical failures. All critical elements (such as chains) are designed for a 15 years life span.

 

Lower Investment Costs

The actual capex for a diffuser is around 80 to 85% of the total cost of a six four-roll mill tandem.

 

Lower Installation Costs

The diffuser does not require the massive concrete foundations, typical in mills and heavy mechanical gearing.

All drives requires low power, as a result the transformers, starters, MCC’s, cables and other bulk materials and related installation costs will be reduced significantly.
