"Unique and innovative system for effective raw juice purification, sustainable development and environmental protection!"
The RECLIME® system achieves a high effect of juice purification by the method of progressive recycling and reactivation of lime compounds (Ca⁺⁺). It decreases the consumption of lime (CaO) to an amount of 0.4 - 0.8 % per beet. It supplies the purification process with the optimum amount, composition and adsorption capacity of the used lime compounds (Ca⁺⁺). At the same time, it achieves an increased sedimentation rate of carbonation precipitates and improved filterability of turbid sugar juices.
Reduced raw limestone and coke consumption by up to 60%;
Reduced milk of lime consumption by up to 60%;
Reduced levels of filtration cake discharge by up to 60%;
Reduced number of filter press cycles required by up to 60%;
Reduced loss of sugar in the filtration cake (carbonation sludge) by up to 60%;
Reduced amount of added water used for filtration cake (carbonation sludge), desweetening and lime (Ca) slaking in the lime slaker by up to 60%;
Reduced energy consumption for thin juice evaporation by up to 5%;
Reduced carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions by up to 10%;
Accelerated sedimentation of the first carbonation juice inside the clarifier and improved filtration;
Reduced electric power consumption needed for pumping the materials due to reduced flows in juice purification;
Reduced wear and load of the technology equipment, especially in the lime kiln, lime slaking, and carbon dioxide (CO₂) pumps;
Reduced investment costs for a lime kiln and the equipment for the production of lime milk when building a new sugar factory or when expanding it;
Increased sugar factory competitiveness thanks to savings in production costs.
The reduction in carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions and the demand for transportation of raw materials is significant! In comparison to the usual consumption of lime (CaO) in juice purification of 1.2 to 2.5% per beet for every 1,000 tons of processed beet, the reduction of CO₂ emissions ranges from about 4.2 to 11.5 tons. Additionally, there is a decrease in the demand for transportation of raw materials (limestone, coke) and waste carbonation sludge, from approximately 30.8 to 84.3 tons.
As a result of the RECLIME system implementation, a sugar factory with an annual production of 100,000 tons of sugar emits approximately 2,800 to 7,700 tons less of harmful carbon dioxide (CO₂) and reduces its raw material transportation demands by 20,700 to 56,900 tons.
