How our steam solution ensured beet sugar production at Saint Louis Sucre
April 10, 2019
When the sugar producer Saint Louis Sucre had to deal with technical issues last November, Atlas Copco Rental came to the rescue. With a solution involving 4 fire tube boilers of 12 tons/hour each and pipework, they were able to meet the customer’s demands. The instant response by the experienced Atlas Copco Rental team enabled the company to quickly restart its production.
Maximum flow of 45 tons/hour at 25 barg
Atlas Copco Rental immediately responded to Saint Louis Sucre's urgent request. The main challenge was to deliver a sufficient number of boilers to supply the 45 tons/hour steam capacity and to reach the maximum service pressure of 25barg to minimize the steam pipes diameter.
Fire tube boilers create steam network
Atlas Copco Rental proposed a set-up of 4 fire tube boilers of 12 tons/hour each supplying a service pressure of 25 barg. We also delivered prefabricated and insulated sections of steam- and gas pipes. Thanks to this solution and the excellent cooperation between the Saint Louis Sucre and the Atlas Copco Rental team, we were able to construct several hundred meters of steam and gas network within a few hours. This allowed us to guarantee the flow and pressure demand.
Operational after 5 days
Thanks to our quick reaction, we were able to get the plant operational again just 5 working days after the delivery of the equipment
