Cane Feeding & Milling Control System ModuleEach cane feeding control module is custom designed to suit the layout of the cane preparation equipment installed. The design philosophy is to maintain a preset cane level in the first mill chute whilst providing overload protection for the cane preparation equipment be it electric motor or turbine driven. Wherever possible the feeding of cane from one carrier to the next is regulated so as to even out any irregularities from the cane unloading area. Robust weighing systems are often used to meter cane feed at carrier transfer points, thus allowing consistent feeding of the outgoing carrier.
If milling control were required this would normally be included in the cane feeding control module and would include mill chute level transmitters and control.
