Sulphitation Vessel Rapid Design

In the Sugar Engineers' sulphitation vessel gas is drawn into the vessel by means of a gas eductor, with a sidestream of the sulphitator sugar liquor as the motive liquid. Some SO2 absorption takes place in the eductor. Gas which disengages from the motive liquid stream, rises up the column. Untreated liquor enters the column just above the top perforated tray. Liquor falls down through the column as the SO2 laden gas rises, so mixing and allowing the SO2 to be absorbed into the liquor stream. Liquor is drawn, by circulation pump, from the bottom of the sulphitator tank and introduced into the column just above the third tray. This is to ensure optimum absorption of SO2.

The features and benefits of the Sugar Engineers' sulphitation vessel are:

  1. Engineered to your factory's precise requirements
  2. Designed for maximum absorption of SO2
  3. Simple, efficient design
  4. Easy to clean and maintain

The Sugar Engineers will be very happy to offer you a quote for the design of a sulphitation vessel for your factory. Please send an email to   stating your requirements.

The design will include:

  1. A detailed and fully dimensioned CAD drawing sent by email
  2. An Engineering specification document
  3. A Process datasheet showing the flows and temperatures and pressures

We are also able to offer Project Management Services for the design, engineering, fabrication and erection of your equipment to ensure it is delivered on time, in budget, to the correct quality.

A partially dimensioned drawing indicative of the design you will receive is available for download.
