Undeniably, the sugar and alcohol sector is fundamental for our country. In fact, we are the largest world producer of sugar cane and the second largest producer of ethanol in the world. In other words, this industry has a very important role in the economy of Brazil.
Therefore, it is essential that managers of this type of company are committed to working with resources that promote even more productivity and cost-benefit.
Thinking about it, today we are going to talk again about hydrojetting in sugar mills. But this time, we want to reveal 3 applications of the service in this segment.
Do you want to discover how hydrojet equipment can help machines in this sector? So read on and stay on top of the subject!
The importance of cleaning equipment
Undoubtedly, maintenance during the off-season and monitoring of process conditions during the harvest positively influence its performance. After all, when there is excess debris and dirt, many problems can arise.
Thus, among the main ones, we can highlight: clogging, leaks, precision drops, clearances and system interruptions.
Therefore, cleaning in all segments, including sugar and alcohol, is very important. Because obstructions can cause temporary downtime, compromise productivity and even generate financial losses for your company.
Therefore, it is essential to seek services that can accomplish this task without compromising the deadlines and results of the industry. Hydrojetting is the perfect solution to clean equipment from different areas accurately, quickly and safely.
The method, which dispenses with the use of products that can harm the environment, is carried out in an agile way and removes the residues that could compromise the machine's operation with efficiency and agility.
In this way, the work is done with a high pressure pump, which is connected to a diesel or electric motor, and fed with water.
Thus, following the flow and pressure configuration, cleaning is performed with a very effective result.
In addition, it is worth remembering that apart from cleaning evaporators, magnetic separators, ovens, boilers and heat exchangers, hydrojetting removes residues accumulated on surfaces, allowing better fluidity between them and preventing dangers of contamination, obstructions and even stopping the machines.
3 hydrojet applications in the sugar and alcohol sector
Undoubtedly, hydrojetting services can guarantee good advantages in all its applications.
But today, we want to show its applications in the sugar and alcohol industry. Check out the 3 examples that we have separated for you!
Evaporators and pre-evaporators
First, in the sugar and alcohol segment, hydrojetting has applications for cleaning evaporators and pre-evaporators.
The equipment is essential for the plants. The pre-evaporator, for example, receives the juice with a temperature below the ideal for boiling and uses its surface to heat the liquid.
In addition, the broth concentration process also passes through the evaporators and can form incrustations due to the fixation of substances caused by the temperature increase.
Likewise, the thermal insulation between the steam and the juice can generate high steam consumption, less water condensation and evaporation of the juice, compromising the thermal and energy balance of the plant.
Therefore, cleaning these two mechanisms eliminates the risk of damage in this type of work.
Hydrojetting is also very important in the internal cleaning of boilers. The solution is a fundamental task for this machine, which needs special care to maintain its smooth operation.
In fact, the boilers generate a lot of steam and the gases resulting from combustion pass through the pipes, heating the water. After this happens, the water is vaporized on the outside of the tubes.
Thus, due to the processes carried out frequently, over time this type of equipment can suffer great wear and tear. In this way, the accumulation of residues can generate corrosive processes and damages that end up with the performance of the machine.
However, water jet services are able to clean quickly and effectively, as they reach even the most difficult places and remove dirt that is difficult to remove.
Finally, hydrojetting is also applied to the internal cleaning of heaters.
The equipment that heats the juice produced in the plants, can also suffer some incrustations due to the dilution of some substances through the high temperature.
As in previous applications, the solution works efficiently, quickly and eliminates obstructions that can impede the performance of this important machine.
Finally, it is important to highlight that, in addition to the sugar and alcohol sector, the hydrojetting method can be applied in other areas, such as: shipbuilding, cement, basic sanitation, oil platforms, civil construction, automobiles and airports.
In our blog we published an article that reveals some more practical examples of carrying out this service in very important sectors.
Access now and find out how this solution can benefit the naval and civil construction sectors.
