The volatilisation and condensation of acetic acid during cane juice evaporation

, : The volatilisation and condensation of acetic acid during cane juice evaporation. Proceedings of the Annual Congress South African Sugar Technologists' Association ( 67): 148-154

Severe corrosion problems associated with vapour condensates have been experienced at Felixton Sugar Mill over the past few seasons. Routine analyses from the 1989/90 season onwards identified the cause as acetic acid originating via hydrolytic deacetylation of the hemicellulose fraction of bagasse upon liming in the diffuser.
