A SCADA Approach to Treat and Control the Syrup Flow in Sugar Industries

Alagu Shibani A, Gayathri R


The objective of our project is to examine various processes in sugar industries such as adding some chemical agents such as phosphoric acid and flocculant to treat the untreated syrup from sugarcane through milling and heating process. In many sugar industries, they process raw cane for the production of sugar and add some chemical agents manually to purify syrup and to maintain its acidic level. Sulphuric acid is added to maintain PH of syrup to 7. Flocculant is a chemical agent, which is added to remove suspended particles from the syrup. In this paper, our role is to design automatic sequence control by using SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System).
