Best Sugar Process: Simplified Flow

In beet plants, Viking pumps are typically found downstream of the evaporators – on thick juice, standard liquor, white pan massecuite, high-green syrup, high-raw massecuite, low-green syrup, low-raw massecuite, molasses, sucrose extract, betaine and raffinate, as well as metering fondant and processing liquid sugars and inverts. 

They are used in 24/7 process applications as well as loadout applications to packaging, trucks and railcars. 

Cane Sugar Milling: Simplified Flow

In cane mills, Viking pumps are typically found downstream of the evaporators – on thick juice, 

“A, B & C” massecuite, “A, B & C” molasses, magma, and on imported cane juice molasses. 

Cane Sugar Refining: Simplified Flow

In cane mills, Viking pumps are typically found downstream of the evaporators – on thick juice, 

“A, B & C” massecuite, “A, B & C” molasses, magma, and on imported cane juice molasses. 

The Viking Pump Solution

Ribbed Idler

A special ribbed idler gear was developed for massecuite and magma. This idler ensures that 80% of the gear flank does not contact the rotor gear, to ensure that crystals are not damaged by gear contact.
