Device and method for reducing crystal impact damage and lump formation in a sugar centrifugal






United States Patent (US 5286298): 4 pp.

Device and method for reducing crystal impact damage and lump formation in a sugar centrifugal

In a method and apparatus for decreasing sugar crystal impact damage and lump formation in a centrifugal, an inclined flexible resilient barrier ring absorbs most of the impact energy of the crystals and deflects the crystals downwards so they are not subsequently struck by high-speed crystals; contacting the outer edge of this is a resilient cylindrical ring extending from the top of the housing to below the contact line.
