The volatilisation and condensation of acetic acid during cane juice evaporation

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