Sugar Cane Machinery

Sugar cane machinery is used to squeeze sugar cane juice out of sugar cane. The process first breaks up the hard nodes in the sugar cane and then flattens the stems. The dried cane residue is then filtered after the residue is treated, and sometimes boiled, to remove the excess water.
 
The remaining liquid would then sit and eventually form into a solid mass known as jaggery, gur, chancaca, or panela. The amount of gur from sugar cane would not only depend on the quality of the cane, but also the ability to extract the juice. This in turn would determine the quality of the sugar cane juice. A
high quality gur would contain sugar levels of over 20%, while poor quality gur will have a less percentage of sugar.
 
The timeline of when the crushing takes place in relation to when the cane was harvested makes a big difference. It is a general rule that the cane must be crushed within 24 hours of being cut. This is to that the sugar does not 'invert' into different sugars.
 
The amount of sugar cane juice is limited to the technology of the machine we use. Normal machines are a simple three roller crusher. These machines generally extract more than 50kg of juice from each 100kg of cane. The juice from a sugar cane machine should also be filtered through a cloth. Some producers add lime to the juice to thicken the impurities which are then taken out.
