Hugot's Handbook of Cane Sugar Engineering needs little introduction - it can be found in technical libraries in cane sugar producing countries all over the world. Unique in the extent and thoroughness of its coverage, the book has for many years provided the only complete description of cane sugar manufacture, mills, diffusers, boilers and other factory machinery, calculation methods of capacity for every piece of equipment, and process and manufacturing techniques.
This new edition has been extensively revised. Information that has become obsolete or of little interest has been deleted or severely shortened. Detailed additions have been made to chapters dealing with recently developed equipment. An entirely new chapter has been added on automation and data processing. Numerous figures, graphs, drawings, photographs, tables and formulae are provided. The metric system has been used throughout the book, but because many factories still use the British units, all measures, formulae and tables and nearly all calculations have been given in both systems.
