The production and handling of crystal sugar creates dust – for example during drying, at the sieving and packing station or at transfer points in transport. We can apply solutions and equipment at all of these places. Riedel Filtertechnik has been an established partner to the sugar industry for decades. Our profound process expertise makes us more than simply an equipment supplier: We are a solution partner on issues of sugar conditioning and silo dedusting. Together with our customers, we develop individual concepts for their process dedusting and for sugar conditioning. To permanently guarantee the quality of ready-for-sale sugar, sugar conditioning is crucial. We supply our customers’ conditioning and storage silos with air of a regulated quality and ensure it is distributed as well as possible. The result? Consistent sugar quality. In addition: Since sugar dust is explosive, the safety of humans and machines is of utmost importance during its removal. Explosion protection measures are an integral part of systems. In addition, the recovery of sugar from the process exhaust air contributes to increasing the yield. This means our partners from the sugar industry benefit twice in terms of sugar conditioning and silo dedusting.
