ACP Cane Sugar Refining

Some idea of the complexity of the process of converting raw sugar into marketable refined products can be gained by studying the process and chemical control system employed at Thames Refinery which is illustrated in Appendix I. The operation at Westburn Refinery in Scotland is similar but on a smaller scale. This is by no means the complete picture, for linked to the two refineries are two speciality liquid blending stations where some eighty different liquid blends, syrups, treacles and speciality products are made for the retail and industrial sectors.
