Sugar Technologists Manual

by Z. Bubnik, P. Kadlec, D. Urban, M. Bruhns


The Sugar Technologists Manual, formerly Zuckertechniker Taschenbuch, provides you with all available data on

  • Crystalline sucrose
  • Pure sucrose solutions
  • Technical sugar solutions
  • Mono-, di- and oligosaccharides.

Wherever necessary for practical work the relevant algorithm is given.

The physical properties of steam and water as well as methods for calculating steam losses will help you to optimize the heat economy of a factory. The collection of sugar technological formulas will make your process control easier.
