Sugar Load-Out and Tote System

Engineering Services Provided to Top Sugar Manufacturer

Spec Engineering provided engineering services to a top sugar manufacturer, while also supplying and installing a complete sugar load-out and tote system.


The system is comprised of two bulk bag unloaders that discharge into a bucket elevator. Product is mechanically conveyed to a 20,000 lbs./hr. sifter with a 12-mesh screen for product quality. Sugar is then discharged to a screw or tote. The screw conveys the sugar outside to a loading area for trucks, incorporating metal detection and an in-ground scale at rates up to 50,000 lbs./hr. Sugar can also be transferred from an existing bag, through a magnet, and into a secondary bag at the required batch rate.
