Application

The process in a vacuum pan is designed to ensure the growth of sugar crystals. The syrup is cooked in a closed boiler with steam-heated tubes and the liquid is extracted. The intermediate product is magma, a mixture of crystal sugar and syrup. This mixture is then poured into a holding tank, the crystallizer. In the holding tank, the cooling and drying process creates a substance called massecuite, from which the sugar crystallizes. The level in the tank must remain constant, so a reliable level measurement is required here.
