5 Typical Valves Used In The Sugar Plants

In the process of making sugar, many industrial processes are required. This article will mainly talk about the 5 types of valves commonly used in the sugar industry, as well as their functions.

    Although due to the impact of the COVID, the global economy is in a downward trend. However, as of 2020, the sugar factory industry is still worth 10.6 billion U.S. dollars and is expected to grow by 0.8% this year. Therefore, the sugar industry and the sugar food industry continue to maintain steady growth.

    In the process of making sugar, many industrial processes are required. This article will mainly talk about the 5 types of valves commonly used in the sugar industry, as well as their functions. 

    1. Gate Valves

    Gate valve is the most common type of industrial valve used in nearly all industries, including sugar plants. It is simple and cost-effective for the on/off application of the pipeline. 

    A gate valve has a gate wedge to isolates fluid, with a compact structure of face to face.

    2. Globe Valves

    Similar to the gate valve, the globe valve is also a common valve type in nearly every industry. We will use a globe valve to shut off the fluid in the process. A globe valve uses a spherical body and tight sealing for the pipeline. (read more information about globe valve you can refer here)

    3. Ball Valves

    At sugar mill processing, the ball valve is the one of most popular industrial valves, especially is pneumatic ball valves, which with excellent performance of shutoff function. Compare with a gate valve, a ball valve has more effective at forming a tight seal and has more reliability and longevity.

    4. Butterfly Valves

    So far, THINKTANK provides plenty of pneumatic butterfly valves and control valves for sugar plants, including Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and so on. Pneumatic butterfly valves are the best choice for quick open and close conditions, also the costs are lower than ball valves.

    5. Control Valves

    The control valve is used to adjust the flow or pressure of the medium fluid. Usually use pneumatic globe type control valves and 3-way control valves. All control valves manufactured by THINKTANK have pass CE and SIL3 qualified approval, with excellent modulating performance and precise pressure control. 

    Here we only example 5 types of valves commonly used for sugar mills, but there are many types of valves in the site of the sugar industry. Luckily, you don’t have to search all of them, THINKTANK has a rich experience of the sugar industry and we can provide you a one-site service and products. 

    Now you know the basic type of industrial valves used in the sugar plant. If you exactly find a reliable valve supplier and request a quote for how much it will cost to purchase valves for your sugar production. Please do not hesitate to contact our sales representative to send your requirements, our experts will provide an optimal solution for your system. 

    We look forward to hearing from you soon.

    condensate recovery system

    Condensate Return System

    Condensate has a large amount of heat, generally accounting for about 20-30% of the total heat of steam, and for some equipment, it can be as high as 40%.  Therefore, if high-temperature condensate can be recycled as boiler make-up water or used for secondary flash steam, it not only saves industrial water but also saves a large amount of fuel.
