EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES All experiments (flocculation, crossflow filtration, and decolorization) were carried out on raw cane sugar originated from La Reunion (France). The solutions were prepared by remelting the sugar. Sugar refining Flocculation A batch of 50 brix solution was prepared from raw cane sugar and heated to Cited by: Comparative study of the performance of three cross-flow ceramic membranes for water treatment Lázaro V Cremades, Esteban Rodríguez-Grau, Rafael Mulero and Joan A Cusidó* Institut Politècnic del Vallès, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Ctra. N, km. . We studied the macromolecular characteristics and rheological properties of pectin present in an effluent obtained by a sugar refining company after alkaline treatment of sugar beet pulp (SBP). The molecular weight of pectin decreased in time from c. 90 kDa to less than 10 kDa owing to the alkalinity of the effluent (β elimination). Membrane flux of digestate centrates (pilot plant at BP I) with ozone treatment and without (reference) as a function of temperature, p = ± bar, v = ± m∙s −1, 70% recovery.

Membrane Separation Process in Wastewater Treatment of Food Industry membrane permeability because of hydraulic resistance increment by the fouling phenomena. This membrane has been successfully used in brine recovery from ion exchange resin regeneration effluent in cane sugar refining. In recent years inorganic membranes have been con- sidered in microfiltration and ultrafiltration applica- tions. A significant number of commercial processes using inorganic mem- branes already exist. Application of a UF membrane system in sugar mills can eliminate various refining processes such as affination, phosphatation, and/or granular carbon/bone char/ion exchange for decolorization. mineral membranes and sugar remelts during micro l-tration [10] were studied with the aim to facilitate the choice of membrane in dependence on solution prop-erties. Vercellotti et al. [11] reported results of their analysis of unknown compositional factors in process-ing of juices or sirups and markedly influencing flux through the membrane.

The world production of sugar (sucrose from sugarcane and sugar beet) in / was approximately million metric tons, raw value, with % being beet sugar and % cane sugar.   This book provides a reference work on the design and operation of cane sugar manufacturing facilities.

In this study, the hydrophobic polypropylene membrane (PP) was used for ultrafiltration (UF) of waste engine oils. Membrane performance (in terms of oil flux and impurities rejection) as a function of operating pressure ( bar) and temperature ( o C) was investigated. Results show that the oil flux increases with applied pressure and temperature while rejections of impurities are relatively : Setyo Widodo, Khoiruddin Khoiruddin, Danu Ariono, Subagjo Subagjo, I Gede Wenten.
