Sugar & Ethanol

With over 30 years of experience and installed product base in the sugar industry, Bray has specifically designed unique and innovative solutions that provide dependable and continuous service in the harshest of sugar processes.

Overview

Quality Products

The nature of sugar production and refining industry requires uninterrupted and continuous service of the plant for as much as 300 days in a year. This demanding process puts valves, actuators and controls through harsh and tough conditions. Continuous service and up-time are critical to the profitability of the plant and it is essential that those valves and actuators supplied into the sugar industry are able to successfully withstand the conditions. With over 30 years of experience and installed product base in the sugar industry, Bray has specifically designed unique and innovative solutions that provide dependable and continuous service in the harshest of sugar processes.

Valves suited for the purpose

RSBV & High Performance

Bray valve solutions such as the resilient seated butterfly valve and high performance butterfly valve have helped to increase reliability and performance in tough sugar applications with crystals such as:
  • Discharge pan valves

  • Cut over valves

  • Washout valves

  • Feed/charge valves on centrifugal

  • Massecuite tanks

  • Vacuum pans

 

Bray’s Series 30/31-3WQ EPDM seat butterfly valve is uniquely designed and suited for reliable performance in high temp applications up to 150C / 302F in various parts of the sugar refinery such as vacuum pans, dryers and juice heaters.

 

Innovative butterfly valve solutions designed specifically to sugar industry such as optimized disc to seat interference on low pressure and slurry applications allow our customers to size smaller profile actuators which help them achieve cost savings through higher service life and lower cost automation.

 

Bray S41R is specially designed high performance butterfly valves for the Sugar Industry. These valves are structured to handle the low pressure steam of evaporators. This valve incorporates the same proven design features of the Bray S41 but in a lighter and a more economical configuration specifically designed for the sugar industry steam services.

 

Segmented Control Valve

Series 19

Bray’s line of segmented control valve solutions has provided dependable performance on tough abrasive and slurry control applications such as:

  • Milk of lime

  • Raw juice feed

  • Decanter/rotary vacuum filter mud feed/discharge

Bidirectional & Unidirectional

Knife Gate valves

Purge ports are recommended when knife gate valves are installed in applications where product tends to dewater, solidify, or build up in the seat area. Deflection cones on knife gate valves used on centrifugal discharge help redirect flow of sugar crystals away from the seat and towards the center of bore. This extends service life of the seat and gate allowing customer uninterrupted service for the production season.

Our innovative and

cutting edge solutions

Pneumatic actuation solutions such as the Bray scotch yoke actuator is built tough with hard chrome plated polished internals and self-lubricated bearings to handle the stress from rapid and high cycling applications such as clarifier discharge. Performance parameters such as stroke count, change in position, pneumatic leakage, position histogram and other metrics available on board and remotely through the Bray smart positioner continually provide the plant actionable insights to make proactive decisions on product performance and maintenance.
