Hardfacing and wear products for sugar mill industry
Sugar is used for soft drinks, sweetened beverages, convenience foods, fast food, candy, confectionery, baked products, and other sweetened foods. Sugarcane is used in the distillation of rum.
Sugar subsidies have driven market costs for sugar well below the cost of production. As of 2018, 3/4 of world sugar production was not traded on the open market. The global market for sugar and sweeteners was some $77.5 billion in 2012, with sugar comprising an almost 85% share, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 4.6%.
Globally in 2018, around 185 million tons of sugar was produced, led by India with 35.9 million tons, followed by Brazil and Thailand. There are more than 123 sugar-producing countries, but only 30% of the produce is traded on the international market.
To mitigate the effects of wear on equipment used in sugar mills, Youke uses its own specially developed cored wires for hardfacing, building up and arcing the rolls and other machinery. We provide tailor-made welding machines and services dedicated to the sugar industry to increase the total lifetime and productivity of sugar rolls and other equipment used in sugar mills.
Youke offers a wide range of products, services to solve wear problems faced in the sugarcane industry.
