Philsutech, the annual national conference of the Philippines sugar industry looked a little different this year. Due to waves of CoVid washing over the country the industry decided to hold a virtual national conference for their 67th meeting during three days between 25th and 27th August. Several hundred registrants participated in a very successful event. Jeffress Engineering was there, and presented on ways to improve profitability of sugar factories by improving processes in sugar laboratories. A high quality functioning sugar laboratory can save money in process losses and make money for the factory by providing high quality accurate data to the process engineers. Acquiring high quality, highly accurate and reliable laboratory equipment is very important to ensure the small equipment investment translates into significant profit gain.
Jeffress Engineering contributed by sponsoring the conference and was selected by Philsutech to provide a technical presentation “JEFFCO Technology for highly accurate payment systems – Common errors in laboratories and how to save your owners money
The presentation slides and presentation can be found on our YouTube channel in its complete form at https://youtu.be/0CfuhHZb-ZA or search for Jeffco in YouTube. or watch the video below:
Busco Sugar Milling Co in the southern Philippines is the largest sugar mill in the country, processing around 20,000 TCD and over 2.6 million tons cane each harvest. BUSCO implemented InfraCana technology in 2005 to analyse accurately every individual delivery of sugarcane. InfraCana sugar cane quality analysis technology gave them the ability to analyse up to 1,500 trucks every 24 hours, requiring only 15 staff over three shifts. Analysis of a sample from a truck, taken using core samplers, takes around 90s and provides a range of results suitable for both payment and for forwarding to process control. To date, the two installed systems have analysed over 2.4 million truckloads of sugarcane with little interruption and high reliability.

So how does Infracana sugar cane quality analysis technology assists in a better process control?
Given the incredibly large number of analysis completed on the InfraCana technology, and reflecting the critical role played by the Near Infra-Red technology BUSCO started looking at replacement solutions in 2018, and after considerable evaluation of alternatives, have invested in Jeffco InfraCana 2nd generation technology once again.
Mr Ronnie Ascunsion, Resident Manager and Vice President of Operations at BUSCO said “The Jeffco InfraCana has played a significant part in helping us increase our share of cane supply leading to a more than successful harvest this year”. InfraCana has played a significant role in assisting BUSCO in their goals to continue to be a profitable and reliable manufacturer of sugar and associated products in the Philippines for the last 16 years. We thank BUSCO for their continued trust and investment in our Jeffco products and look forward to a continued valuable and successful relationship in the decades to come.

Jeffress Engineering sponsored an exhibitors booth at Philsutech 2019 in August. The annual sugar industry event, held in Cebu, Philippines, attracts over 1200 delegates and almost 300 exhibitors and is one of the largest sugar industry events in Asia. Having been present at many of the Philsutech conferences we renewed friendships, made new connections and celebrated another successful year of partnership activities and business in the Philippines. Congratulations to Philsutech organisers and the Philippines industry for a professionally organised event.
Fortec Integrated Systems Inc Director Ruth Lagana remarked the exhibition was one of the best so far, with high interest in Jeffco products.
Jeffress Engineering will once again be in attendance at this years 2019 Philsutech during August 12th to 16th at the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu. Come see us at booth L19 near to the main conference hall on the ground floor. We will be supported by our Philippines agent, Ms Ruth Lagana of Fortec Integrated Systems mob +63 922 867 2557
A recent order for a JEFFCO WD02 Wet Disintegrator by the PHILSURIN sugar industry research organisation will assist them in their continual task to improve analytical practice in the Philippines sugar industry.
PHILSURIN are the Philippines’ sugar industry funded national research organisation responsible for generating new sugarcane varieties amongst a wide array of other responsibilities. PHILSURIN invited JEFFRESS Engineering General Manager Chris Henderson to visit its facilities and view its operations. “PHILSURIN’S leadership under its chairman Mr Tim Bennett is making great efforts to improve their facilities and target positive and sustainable developments for the Philippines sugar industry and its exciting to see and hear of their work and plans ahead” he said. Head of the organisations main research facility Dr Rosalyn Luzaran said, “The JEFFCO Wet Disintegrator will improve the accuracy of our analysis processes and assist us in our objective of developing the best sugarcane varieties for the Philippines’ Sugar Industry. We have carefully examined our needs for the best equipment and are excited to be working with and using JEFFCO technology.”
