Practical experiences with stone washers for residue separation and waste reduction

Rainer Becker

Employment of stone washers supplied by the engineering company Paris in the beet preparation lines of the Könnern and Euskirchen sugar factories has had considerable impact on waste reduction and residue utilization. Alongside of the technological questions of their installation, this article looks at the construction and mode of operation of the stone washers of the Paris and Bütfering companies. In addition, the plant-specific elements of the cost-benefit analysis of the Könnern factory and the possibilities of effectively marketing the stones are presented.
