Evaporation is a critical process step in sugar manufacturing as it creates conditions where crystallization can occur in the next processing phase. Water is evaporated from thin syrup containing about 10-15 Brix dissolved solids to thick syrup of about 50-70 Brix.
Evaporation usually takes place in a multiple-effect evaporator heated with steam. Evaporators use a lot of heat and if not controlled, this will accumulate a lot of costs that affect the overall economy of the mill.
