Jeffress Engineering Commissions new Jeffco technology in Sudan

Jeffress Engineering commissioned new Jeffco technology in Sudan recently at The Kenana Sugar Company. Jeffco InfraCana Near Infra-Red cane quality testing equipment was installed in a brand new Cane Quality Facility on the factory site. Jeffress Engineering provided facility concept drawings and worked with local factory civil engineering staff to design and develop the building. Whilst most sugarcane at Kenana is company owned the Quality Control department plans to use it to evaluate incoming cane quality at individual truck level. Every truck entering the factory will be tested eventually for a wide range of chemical parameters. Paired with a brand new Motocanna Oblique core sampler also provided through Jeffress Engineering each truck can be processed through the facility in around 2 minutes or less. Cane quality information will feed back to various departments in the factory including the Agricultural division for improvements in soil/variety decisions, maturity evaluations, yield analysis, nutrient management; the Transport division for transport management improvements and the factory for process improvements.

Also commissioned was a Jeffco WD02 Wet Disintegrator for validation of the NIR cane quality results to a high degree of accuracy.

Selected factory staff were trained in NIR theory and practice enabling Kenana to be in full independent control of calibration model development and application.

Remote access to the Jeffco technology provides the ability for Jeffco engineers to rapidly respond to requests for assistance from Kenana in real time. Working with trained Kenana staff this will reduce equipment downtime to a minimum should a problem occur.

Jeffress Engineering wishes everyone at Kenana Sugar Company every success in future operations and looks forward to a long and profitable outcome for them in their use of their new Cane Quality Testing facility!

Jeffress wins Cane Quality Testing technology business in Sudan

Jeffress wins Cane Quality Testing technology business in Sudan

Jeffress Engineering has been successful in winning the job of implementing a new Sugarcane Quality Testing facility at Kenana sugar in Sudan. Jeffress will install Jeffco InfraCana automated sugarcane sample analysis technology for analysis of every truck of incoming sugarcane into the factory. Jeffress will also provide Jeffco WD02 Wet Disintegrator for validation analysis processes and a core sampler from Brazil. Jeffress concept drawings will be used for the design of the CTU facility.

KSC has used Jeffco equipment for almost 20 years in its routine laboratories and R & D divisions. It will be the 1st formal facility of its kind in the region, underlining the innovation and engineering quality of the Kenana sugar processor and its staff.

Belize sugar industry adopts JEFFCO processing and analysis technologies as best practice standard for cane quality analysis

Belize sugar industry adopts JEFFCO processing and analysis technologies as best practice standard for cane quality analysis

Earlier this year the Belize Sugar Industry installed and commissioned a JEFFCO InfraCana II into a newly renovated Cane Testing Unit (CTU) facility at the Tower Hill sugar factory. Funded by the European Union the new system allows the Belize sugar industry to test every truck of sugarcane for quality. Information is planned for distribution to growers to help them make better decisions about growing and harvesting sugarcane. Information is also fed forward to the sugar factory to assist them to improve sugarcane processing within the factory. Over 400 trucks per day will be tested when fully operational.

Additionally, the new CTU wet chemistry laboratory has a JEFFCO WD02 Wet Disintegrator for accurate primary analysis of sugarcane for Pol and Brix.

The new CTU wet laboratory will use ICUMSA standard testing for high quality validation and monitoring of the InfraCana Near-InfraRed technology.

The JEFFCO InfraCana also incorporates the world best JEFFCO CG03 Cutter Grinder with preparation index above 95 and strong operator safety protection systems.

All three Jeffco technologies can be seen operating in a single location in Central America.

Excited local science graduates were amongst the first to visit the new facility to see JEFFCO technology in action.
