Continuous Vacuum Pan Rapid Design

The Continuous Vacuum Pan (CVP) is a very effective way of optimising pan floor space, ease of operation of the pan floor, minimising the temperature difference between the heating steam and massecuite being boiled, while still maintaining good circulation through the calandria, using natural convection.

The features of the Sugar Engineeers' CVP are:

  1. Carefully designed using well established prnciples of sugar technology along with CFD to optimise the design for each specific installation
  2. Simple cylindrical body shell; no complex curves to roll
  3. Simple, robust calandria fabrication
  4. an easily fabricated internal entrainment separator
  5. Compartments sized according to the residence time of the crystal in each compartment
  6. A very robust design that can be scaled from large sugar factory size down to artisanal mini sugar factory size.

The Sugar Engineers will be very happy to offer you a quote for the design of a CVP for your factory. Please send an email to   stating your requirements.

The design will include:

  1. A detailed and fully dimensioned CAD drawing sent by email
  2. An Engineering specification document
  3. A Process datasheet showing the flows and temperatures and pressures

We are also able to offer Project Management Services for the design, engineering, fabrication and erection of your equipment to ensure it is delivered on time, in budget, to the correct quality.
