ABB Ability System 800xA Sugar Library

Wednesday, 19 January, 2022 | Supplied by: ABB Australia Pty Ltd


ABB has released ABB Ability System 800xA Sugar Library, the newest version of its sugar application library, with new functionalities to act as a control engineering inventory for sugar manufacturing.

This release has a range of new templates for sugar process applications in the cane sugar and sugar beet industries. The library fulfils process area requirements such as raw material handling, purification, crystallisation and sugar handling. Also introduced in this version is the ability to fulfil evaporation and filtration needs.

The library is built on knowledge gained through collaboration between equipment suppliers and sugar manufacturers, which means it operates in an up-to-date and advanced manner.

A human-machine interface has been designed to allow for the fast detection and resolution of process disturbances. This means that maintenance teams can quickly obtain the information needed due to the visual display of process tracking and trends.

The library features a steam economy mode to ensure that only the necessary amount of steam is generated during the evaporation phase. This steam is subsequently collected and then reused for the crystallisation phase, thereby reducing energy and production costs.

Sugar manufacturers can make use of premade templates for control schemes that cover vacuum pans and Brix control as well as other critical process areas such as purification, evaporation and raw material handling. Efficient boil up curves with customisable algorithms are also included. The result is that producers are able to gain improved control for steam economy, with better shape and homogeneity of their sugar crystals.
