the interior soft pith which `holds sugar rich juice and the outer portion known as rind. It begins by dumping of canes at the dumping station. It has a leveller which levels the cane and a kicker. Theleveller rotates in a direction opposite to the direction of the feeding carrier while the kicker rotates opposite in the direction of the leveller. The speed of the carrier is being controlled by an operator in the tower. Then the cane moves to the kicker which kicks the cane to the shredder. Canes are arranged by batch in the dumping area. Cane cutter number has twice the number of blades as the first cutter. canes are weighed to serve as method for payment to growers. the canes are being conveyed by the feeding carrier. (b)The feeding carrier and the cane carrier are an apron type conveyor. Before dumping. Then the cane passes through the two cutters which cuts the cane into smaller pieces.MILLING The extraction of juice from Cane constitutes the first stage of the entire process of cane sugar manufacture wherein the object of separation of juice from the fibrous portion of the cane is accomplish by employing heavy machinery.

and dust conveyor are conveyed into a conveyor that is common of this three conveyors and is called ash removal conveyor and is directed to the ash bin. The stored bagasse will be used if the milling operation stops. From the 5th mill. Ashes that are being carried by the flow of smoke to the chimney are being trap by the ash trap and then drops in the dust conveyor. It is done periodically to minimize the bagasse that goes with the ash in deashing. Metals or stones may clog in the conveyor. The excess bagasse drops in the shutter and is carried to the surplus bagasse conveyor. Boiler 1 2 3 Fuel Consumption (based on maximum capacity ) 30 tons/hr 30 tons/hr 40 tons/hr Ash Flow Ash and unburned bagasse drops and collected in the deashing conveyor during deashing. Ash truck collects the ash in the ash bin. As the name implies. The lower portion carries the bagasse from the main bagasse elevator and distributes the bagasse to the boilers. The main bagasse carrier has the upper and lower portion. The surplus bagasse conveyor connects to the travelling belt conveyor. The ashman make sure that no metal or stone is being carried by the conveyor.Bagasse Flow The figure above indicates how bagasse and ash are being conveyed. Some of the fundamental properties of steam which govern its use for generation of power and for heating as well as boiling in process are: . Ashes that are accumulated in the air preheater drops into the air preheater conveyor. The travelling belt conveyor conveys the bagasse to the bagasse warehouse. the bagasse is conveyed by the main bagasse elevator to the main bagasse carrier. The ash and unburned bagasse that drops in the deashing conveyor. The fireman releases the lever to open and close the damping grate. The surplus conveyor has shutter which connects to the return bagasse elevator. Backfeeding is the feeding of bagasse in the return bagasse elevator using heavy equipment like payloader. Deashing is done by the fireman. air pre-heater conveyor. Deashing is done in the 1st hour and every after four hours of the shift. Uses of Steam In sugar mills steam is used for both power generation and as source of heat in process operation. it is where the excess bagasse is stored.

(2) Low pressure steam is required in process operation. Air Flow in theBoiler Air is one of the essential part of a boiler. The steam drum and mud drum is connected by the generating tubes The superheater isa bank of tubes suitably located in the path of hot gases and connected to the boiler drum. Without air the rate of combustion is slow. The water from the deaerator is being pumped to the boiler by a feedwater pump. The Safety Valve Safety valves are installed in the boiler which automatically releases the steam incase of over pressure. Economizers are usually made of cast iron and their function is essentially to heat the feedwater and not to boil. The exhaust steam that is produced by the turbines in the mills and power house will go to the low pressure header and will be utilized in the process. Before entering the steam drum. 1 for superheater) and boiler 3 has 3 safety . After the IDF. And the exhaust from these prime movers is utilised for process operations.(1) High pressure and temperatures of steam are desirable for generating power. In the boiler. secondary force draft fan(SFDF) and undergrate fan. Boiler Feed Water The source of water for steam for steam generation in the boilers is mostly the condensate from the heat exchangers in the process and the condensate is derived from condensed vapour obtain from juice boiling in the evaporators and water from steam condensed in the heat exchangers . water temperature is now 170˚C. the force draft fan collects fresh air and carries it to the air preheater. The SFDF aids the burning of bagasse by blowing hot air in the furnace. The condensate tank pumps water to the day tank. The undergrate fan blow air under the furnace. The day tank provides water supply in the boiler when there is no operation. The mud drum is located below the steam drum where impurities settle. Air preheater heats up fresh air and supplies it to three tubes: bagasse distribution fan(BDF). Then it enters the steam drum. A deaerator is a device that is widely used for the removal of oxygen and other dissolved gases from the feedwater to steam-generating boilers. the water enters an economizer. Exhaust steam enters the deaerator and heats up the water to 110˚C. Boiler 1 and 2 has 4 safety valves (3 for the steam drum. When the water exits the economizer. An economizer is a feedwater preheating device which utilizes the heat of the flue gas. The smoke(flue gas) produced in the combustion will be absorb by the induced draft fan(IDF). High pressure steam from boilers is fed to prime movers for some units like mill turbines as well as to the power house turbines. the deaerator tank will supply water in the boiler. If the mill operation starts. It must be half filled with water. the flue gas discharged to the atmosphere by the chimney. The steam that is being generated goes to the high pressure header(HPH) and the HPH is responsible for the distribution of steam. It collects the steam generated in the boiler. The BDF blows the bagasse into the furnace equally.

Another reason is that the water has chemical elements it that must be controlled to limit and eliminate the formation of scaling. Scaling may cause low heat transfer at the point of deposits.0 Boiler Water Treatment It is necessary for the water in the boiler be treated to achieve great steam production at a lower cost. Below is the table indicating the boiler water treatment control parameters. Chemicals were put in the high pressure and low pressure chemical injection tank to control the formation of the chemical elements that is carried by the water to the boiler.8 SV3: 24.
