The type and capacity of crystallizers are largely determined by:

  • Type of Massecuite:
    • A-massecuite and refinery massecuites are hot cured.
    • B-massecuite is cooled to around 52-54°C.
    • C-massecuite is initially cooled to 40-42°C and then re-heated to 50-52°C.
  • Capacity Factors:
    • Quantity of massecuite to be processed, generally kept around 10% higher than the pan capacity.
    • Time required to cool the massecuite to the desired temperature.
    • Duration needed to empty the crystallizer.

Batch Type Crystallizers

Rotary Sugar Dryer


Experience the revolution in sugar drying with our Rotary Sugar Dryer. Designed for perfection and built for durability, our dryer is an innovation in the field of sugar drying and cooling. With a unique design that leverages the mechanical motion of the drum, the Rotary Sugar Dryer offers a streamlined process that makes it especially ideal for Raw Sugar Factories and Refineries.

How It Works

The Rotary Sugar Dryer operates distinctively. As the drum rotates in a spiral loop, it conveys the sugar from one end to the other without the direct influence of air displacing the sugar. Instead, the air is employed to percolate through the sugar curtain, which is created when the sugar is scooped up and showered across the entire cross-section of the shell. This not only ensures an even drying process but also maintains the integrity of sugar crystals, especially those smaller than 600-750 microns.

Integration Possibilities

To enhance the drying process and ensure optimal results, our Rotary Sugar Dryer can be seamlessly integrated with:

  • Cooler: For rapid cooling post-drying.
  • Chiller: Ensuring sugar temperature is maintained.
  • Dehumidifier: Counters the climatic conditions and prevents re-absorption of moisture.

The type of integration depends on the sugar variety and prevailing climatic conditions. This ensures that the bagging temperature remains ideal, keeping the sugar in pristine condition.

Key Benefits

  • High Energy Efficiency: Our design ensures maximum drying with minimal energy input.
  • Inbuilt Dust Extraction System: Ensuring a clean and hygienic drying environment.
  • Cost-Effective: High efficiency paired with low maintenance makes it a cost-effective solution for all your drying needs.
  • Robust Built Quality: Crafted with precision, our dryer promises longevity and consistent performance.
  • Low Energy Consumption: Save on energy bills without compromising on drying quality.


Choose our Rotary Sugar Dryer for a seamless, efficient, and cost-effective sugar drying solution. Whether you deal with Raw Sugar, Refined Sugar, or any other variety, our dryer is designed to meet your specific needs.

Fluidized Bed Dryer (FBD)


The Fluidized Bed Dryer (FBD), a pinnacle in sugar drying technology. With a design rooted in the principle of fluidizing sugar using a bed of air complemented with a mechanical drive, FBD is engineered for excellence. As sugar immerses itself within the perforated screen, it enters a transformative state, behaving like a fluid, ensuring an unparalleled drying experience.

How It Works

At the heart of the FBD system lies the unique fluidizing process:

  1. Entry: Sugar enters from the top, meeting the perforated screen.
  2. Air Initiation: Air, coming from the bottom of the deck, starts fluidizing the sugar.
  3. Fluid State: As the sugar crystals interact with the air, they start behaving like a fluid, entering a suspended state.
  4. Mechanical Drive: This drive ensures the gentle conveyance of sugar from the feed to the dryer’s discharge.
  5. Continuous Contact: Throughout the deck, sugar remains constantly in contact with air, ensuring consistent drying.

Integration Possibilities

To further optimize the drying process, the Fluidised Bed Sugar Dryer can be integrated with:

  • Cooler: Rapidly cools the sugar post-drying.
  • Chiller: Maintains the sugar’s temperature.
  • Dehumidifier: Adjusts according to the climatic conditions, ensuring no moisture re-absorption.

The choice of integration is tailored based on the sugar type and prevailing climatic conditions, ensuring the perfect bagging temperature.

Fluidized Bed Dryer

Static Fluidized Bed Sugar Dryer


Presenting the Static Fluidized Bed Sugar Dryer – which brings compactness and cost-effectiveness in sugar drying technology. While it operates on principles similar to the Fluidized Bed Sugar Dryer, its distinguishing factor is the absence of a mechanical drive, making it an optimal choice for smaller capacity plants with moderate moisture inputs.

How It Works

The Static Fluidized Bed Sugar Dryer’s operation is a marvel in simplicity and effectiveness:

  1. Air-Driven Fluidization: Without mechanical drives, the air takes charge. The air dries the sugar and, thanks to its high approach velocity, also aids the sugar’s traverse from one end to the other.
  2. Consistent Drying: The continuous airflow ensures that sugar remains in a steady drying state, delivering consistent results every time.

Integration Possibilities

To further elevate the drying process, the Static Fluidized Bed Sugar Dryer can be seamlessly integrated with:

  • Cooler: For immediate cooling after the drying process.
  • Chiller: To maintain the desired sugar temperature.
  • Dehumidifier: Countering ambient climatic conditions, it prevents any chances of moisture reabsorption.

The ideal integration is determined based on the specific type of sugar and the prevailing climatic conditions, ensuring the sugar is bagged at the perfect temperature.

Key Benefits

  • Inbuilt Dust Extraction System: A promise of a contaminant-free drying process.
  • Negligible Maintenance Cost: Maintenance costs are kept at a bare minimum with no mechanical drive.
