First peek for everybody on June 1st, 2016
Despite the spontaneously announced date, more than 50 colleagues took advantage of the early opportunity to view the PTZW in Wuppertal. Attendees had the unique chance to obtain first impressions directly on site or could simply take in the view of our future workplace while enjoying a drink and sausages from the grill. Many colleagues were very impressed by the new location in Wuppertal.
Sugar production in Iraq
Putsch® Group delivers it’s to date largest PKF installation
In the spring of 2015, a completely new cane sugar refinery for Etihad Food Industries was successfully put into operation.
Along with a complete carbonation system, a bag filter station and various other peripheral equipment, the Putsch® Group delivered and installed the most expansive PKF station to date with 5 PKF 250 NG for the direct filtration of carbonated juice. In addition to installation and commissioning, our machines were integrated into the control system.
The sugar factory built in the middle of Iraq now produces around 3,000 t / d of white sugar.
Project planning, implementation and turnover were accomplished very effectively and quickly, thus the completed job can be perceived as a great success.
6 High Performance Candle Filters for the Sugar Factory in Bury St. Edmunds, England
British Sugar invested into the modernization of their juice purification operation at its factory in Southeast England. 6 Putsch® HKF 200 replaced the old, labor intensive Grand-Pont frame filters in second filtration. Through this project, British Sugar was able to increase its filtration capacity to 1200m³ and lower its solid contents from 10 ppm to <2ppm in filtration quality. Furthermore, its maintenance costs were reduced considerably.
A challenge for our design engineers was to carry out the acidification of the filter socks in the vessel. Therefore, these were sealed from the inside with an acid resistant protective coating to prevent corrosion.
The project was carried out within 6 months from order date to the start-up: the filters were set in operation with the customer’s proprietary control system on time for campaign start in 2014. After the optimization of the process parameters by Putsch® process technicians, the system operates trouble free.
Our British customer is very pleased with the performance, operating life, as well as the control possibilities, particularly now that the bothersome changing of filter cloths (10 to 12 units during campaign) with the old installation is no longer necessary. The company would choose Putsch® High Performance Candle Filters again.
