David Daniels, Sr. Principal Scientist with M&M Engineering, has written an article that was recently published in Ultrapure, “What a Tanzanian Sugar Mill Learned from Monitoring Steam Properties.”
A sugar mill in Tanzania installed a new bagasse-fueled boiler that operated at 45-bar to supply super-heated steam to a small single shaft turbine/generator set. Adding a steam turbine for power generation required that the sugar mill monitor steam purity for the first time. Additional instrumentation and training were required for mill chemistry personnel. This article will discuss the approach that was taken to adapt steam chemistry monitoring at this site and the improvements that the mill saw.
