Optimize your sugar production with process instrumentation
Innovative, robust and easy-to-clean technologies during production and maintenance
Sugar production is a cost-sensitive business. Robust, durable and high-quality process instruments are of utmost importance because they increase performance and ensure constant quality. Sugar processes can be optimized without compromising product quality. Robust, easy-to-clean innovative technologies guarantee high plant availability and reduce the risk of equipment damage during maintenance.
million metric tons
of sugar are produced worldwide each year.
When producing at such high quality and high volumes, it is imperative to avoid unscheduled outages.
Endress+Hauser offers a complete palette of approved flow, level, temperature, pressure and analytical instruments to solve your challenges in the demanding sugar production business. Our instruments are designed and manufactured to withstand cleaning processes during maintenance periods and in harsh production processes.
Consistent product quality and taste

Level measurement in the evaporation process
One of the most challenging applications in sugar production is the level measurement in the evaporator. A low clarified juice level may damage an entire batch and cause an unscheduled outage.
Radar technology mounted in a bypass system ensures robust, stable and reliable level monitoring.
Optimize your differential pressure measurement
Harsh production environments and cleaning processes frequently damage the differential pressure system in evaporators. A reliable one-to-one replacement is the Deltabar FMD71, our innovative electronic differential pressure system. The ceramic cell offers maximum robustness paired with abrasion resistance and vacuum tightness. And Deltabar offers additional benefits: faster installation, less maintenance and downtime and fewer spare parts.
Keep pH measurement within safe limits
The optimal pH range in the crystallization process is 6.5 to 7.0, which ensures top-quality end products. Because of the low ionic strength of the water mixed with sugar, a glass electrode cannot be used. We recommend our digital non-glass Memosens sensors ISFET or Ceramax. In addition, the Ceramax sensor offers long-term stability and minimal maintenance.
Brix concentration at the highest level
Syrup is produced in the evaporation phase with about 65° Brix. Apart from the main task of measuring mass flow and density, the Promass also performs an in-line analysis of the Brix concentration with a high degree of accuracy. Our new flowmeter platform organizes clear, standardized diagnostic notifications using the Endress+Hauser Heartbeat technology, which enables predictive maintenance while supplying proof of operational reliability and process safety.
