The efficiency of the sugar plants depends to a large extent on the performance of the evaporators. The conventional robert evaporators used in the most of the cane sugar factories work with high ΔT thus usually 1st or 2nd vapours are required for heating/ boiling of juice/ massecuite. In order to operate the sugar plant with high efficiency, it is one of the pre-requisites that the evaporators work on very low ΔT so that the lower stage vapours can be utilized for heating/ boiling. Falling film evaporators have the required characteristics to work on narrow ΔT to improve the steam economy.

IPRO group is pioneer in introducing the falling film evaporators in the cane sugar industry. More than 170 FFE plus units are operational in the cane  sugar plants depicting immense experience and trust of the clients. Along with installation of FFE plus in the new modern cane & beet sugar factories, we have upgraded many of the sugar plants with FFE plus  to improve the steam economy.
