Sugars Letter



25th Anniversary

This year marks the 25th year of business for Sugars International LLC supplying the Sugars program to the international sugar industry.

During the course of the last 25 years, Sugars has modeled thousands of process and the results from its calculations have been used to make major improvements to beet and cane factories and refineries.

Sugars(TM) for Windows(R) is a process modeling and simulation computer program used by sugar companies and engineering firms around the world to improve beet and cane sugar factories and refineries. Sugars is fast and user friendly to provide material, energy and color balances along with net process revenues. It has a full graphical interface using Microsoft(R) Visio to build, display and change models.

Training Sessions

Shown above are some of the American Crystal Sugar Company attendees at the Sugars Seminar in Moorhead, Minnesota in May 2008. Training covered model building, data display, error evaluation, and data export to an embedded or external spreadsheet. A variety of models were built and discussed along with different techniques for displaying results on the drawing or using them in calculations.

Online Demonstrations and Training

Computer Communication

The power of the internet continues to impact business practices. Now, demonstrations and training of Sugars can be done remotely - it is no longer necessary to travel for a meeting.

Using a high speed connection, online meetings can be held to demonstrate the program or train users. This makes it easy to hold meetings anywhere in the world where a fast internet connection is available. Several companies have already participated in online meetings.

A microphone and speakers connected to each computer are needed for audio communications over the same internet connection using VOIP to allow open discussions between the presenter and the attendees of the meeting.

New Users

Sugar companies, engineering firms and equipment suppliers in 35 countries have purchased a license to use Sugars. Since the last Sugars Letter, companies in France, India, Poland, South Africa, Turkey and United Arab Emirates have joined the growing list of Sugars users, and some companies already using Sugars have purchased additional copies so that more engineers have access to the program.


New Sugars papers

A paper written by Quido Smejkal, Arash Bagherzadeh and Rudolf Schick of the Technical University of Berlin titled Influence of reduced temperatures in evaporation and crystallisation on the sugar quality and energy consumption in sugar production was published by Sugar Industry volume 133, no. 5, May 2008, pages 330 - 339. The paper shows process modifications that significantly reduce energy consumption and increase sugar quality in a beet sugar factory. All of the simulations in the paper were done using Sugars. The paper is in German; however, a companion summary paper in English is also available.

The December 2008 issue of Sugar Industry contained a paper written by Jan L.M. Struijs titled Umrüstung der Verdampfanlage in Vierverlaten. This paper discusses the change from a six effect to a seven effect evaporator at the Vierverlaten beet sugar factory of Suiker Unie. Sugars was used for the simulation calculations. Further details about the project are available in the Sugar Industry publication.
