Sugar Grinding Solutions

Sugar grinding and manual packing solution safely handles sugar milling, storage, and packaging at 1200 kg/hr. Considering that sugar is explosive at and above 150 deg-C, safety was the foremost parameter. Therefore, ATEX area was clearly demarcated.

Cybernetik Technologies delivers safe and flexible sugar grinding solutions. More than that, we offer integrated solutions that, apart from grinding, handle related operations such as storage and packaging.

Available in four variants, Cybernetik Technologies’ sugar grinding plant is an integrated set up consisting of the following major equipment:

  • Fine Grinder at the core
  • Bag Tipping Station / Automatic Bag Slitter
  • Screw Conveyor
  • Powder Charging System
  • Storage Silo
  • Vibro Sifter
  • Manual Bagging Machine / Automatic Bagging Machine / Big Bag Filling System

The four variants that we talked of have capacities of 400, 800, 1200, and 2000 kg/hr. Customizable variants are available subject to maximum throughput of 2000 kg/hr.

Designed with total satisfaction of the end-user as the guiding criteria, the plant comes with:

  • Hygienic, cGMP built.
  • Explosion-proof construction for flame proof area.
  • Flavour preservation.
  • Dust-free operation.
  • Ergonomic set up.
  • Semi-automatic working.

Safety features:

  • ATEX Zone with explosion proofing.
  • Emergency Shutdown Valve for fire situations.
  • Explosion Vent for pressure relief.
  • Isolation Valves for inter-equipment separation.
  • Door Switches allow operation with closed doors only.
  • Anti-static Filter Bags avoid dust settling.
  • Fine Grinder Canopy and Drive Cover lower noise levels below 75 dB.

Powdered sugar is inflammable at sufficiently high temperatures and concentrations. Grinding generates heat which raises temperature. Sugar converts to hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) at temperatures exceeding 1500C. HMF is inflammable and the main reason for sugar’s blast-prone nature.

Grinding also multiplies the surface area of sugar crystals, which present larger surface for combustion. Finer sugar powder is more inflammable. Sugar particles of:

  • 063 mm are blast-prone at 60 g/m3 concentration.
  • 4 mm are likely to explode at 750 g/m3.

Preventive approach focuses on avoiding the following two conditions that can trigger a blast in the presence of adequate oxygen levels:

  • Airborne sugar dust and its accumulations.

Ignition source.
