Modelling the flow of juice through a mill
A juice flow model has been developed to estimate the juice expression at the four nips of a sixroller mill. An extended volumetric theory was applied to determine the juice expressed at each nip. The model was applied to a first and final mill, using typical mill settings and an empirical equation to estimate reabsorption. Results of using the model for typical heavy-duty pressure feeder settings show that most of the juice is expressed at the pressure feeder nip. Since the pressure feeders are remote from the mill, a significant portion of the juice is expressed before the bagasse enters the mill.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
