Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta luesday, November 12, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 raid Staff Writer UGA With the addition of heat, the flow of water extracts the sugar juices from the pulp which is collected at the bottom of the diffuser. The spent beet pulp continues to the top of the diffuser and is moved to a drier to be made into livestock feed. The sugar juices then begin a purifying process. Two per cent by volume of lime is added along with carbon dioxide gas which combines with the lime to form a precipitate of calcium carbonate which settles to the bottom of large tanks, taking with it most of the impurities, leaving sugar in water solution. The sugar water is then passed through different filtering systems and the lime mud is extracted and pumped into a large holding pond outside the plant. The refined sugar water then goes to evaporators to remove most of the water. Three large tanks are used to raise the ratio of solid matter in the solution', leaving a type of syrup. The syrup, after being filtered a final time, enters the boiling process. Four large tanks are used in this process. Syrup is pumped into the first tank, called the white pan. Icing sugar is introduced into the syrup to start the granulation process in the two white pans. RICK ERVIN photo It takes 2.5 to three hours to build a pan which amounts to cubic feet of granulated white sugar and syrup, said Stan Linitski, boiler .operations man. This mixture Chen moves down into centrifugal machines which spin it, remov- ing the liquid portion and leaving white granulated sugar. The left-over liquid still contains a large amount of sugar in solution which is pumped into an intermediate pan for further processing. Sugar developed from the second boiler is melted and reintroduc- ed to the white pans for a second sugar ex- traction. The syrup from the intermediate process is then moved into a raw pan for more boil- ing and again the sugar produced is melted and returned to the white pan and sugar ex- traction process a third time. The syrup left from the raw pan is con- sidered molasses and is used for cattle feed. The granulated sugar moves from the centrifugal machines to a dryer prior to go- ing to bulk storage or being bagged for shipment. GEORGE TRAPP FILLS 100 Ib. BAG I ;
