Four MSizer giants replace five machines in the world's largest sugar refinery

The customer

  • The world's largest stand-alone sugar refinery Al Khaleej in Dubai.

The challenge

  • Temporary higher sugar moisture levels caused regular screen blockages and product mixing with corresponding time expenditure for maintenance and screen cleaning.
  • In addition, there was product contamination due to rubber abrasion from the screen cleaning system.
  • Despite the use of modern technology, there was an enormous amount of maintenance work, as the machines were supplied by different manufacturers.
  • The requirement was to reduce the high costs by standardization and by plant optimization and to guarantee extended flexibility.
  • Furthermore, the capacities should be increased from approx. 60 - 65 t/h (nominal) to up to 80 t/h per screening machine as a maximum.

The solution

  • In order to meet the customer's requirements for flexibility, cost reduction and increased efficiency, Mogensen reduced the number of machines from five existing machines to just four MSizer giants.
  • At the same time, a smaller footprint with higher capacity could be realized due to the longer screen deck length.
  • The initial sugar production capacity of a daily throughput of 6,000 tons was increased to more than 7,000 tons per day.

The result

  • With the conversion to a uniform and smaller machine series, energy, maintenance and spare parts costs were significantly reduced.
  • Due to the machine design, maintenance of the Mogensen Sizer can be carried out quickly and easily, which leads to a further significant cost reduction.
  • The technological changeover has resulted in a gigantic increase in capacity with improved product purity, correct particle sizes, and undersize/oversize in line with specifications. At the same time, downtime has been reduced. Sugar blockages are now prevented at Al Khaleej Sugar, thanks to Mogensen Sizer Technology.
