The Continuous Vacuum Pan

From Design to Fabrication to transportation to installation supervision and finally commissioning

Our CVP is just one of many pieces of equipment that has been supplied to the Zambia Sugar Nakambala expansion project by the Sugar Equipment division

The process starts with the design phase, the CVP is sized to suite the clients process requirements, then using the latest 3D modelling software, our design draughtsman create a model of the CVP which is then sent to a pressure vessel certification specialist.  Once the design has been approved, fabrication drawings are produced and issued to the fabricator for construction.

The fabrication quality is continually monitored by Sugar Equipment engineers and all testing completed in the presence of the client. Once the BP engineers and Client representatives had signed it off it was loaded onto an abnormal truck bound for Zambia.  Loading had to be contracted out to a specialist company due to the size and weight of the CVP, the loading was closely monitored by our Engineers as this piece of equipment weighed over 70 tons in total.  Once loaded onto the truck,  it set off with a police escort on its month long  journey to Zambia.

The next phase was Installation.  The installation was done by sub-contractors under the constant supervision of Bosch Projects Sugar Equipment, ensuring the highest level of quality was adhered too.  Once complete the CVP is pressure tested and released for commissioning.

Commissioning is done by the client, under the direction and supervision of a BP Sugar Equipment engineer, the clients operators are trained and the CVP is now released for many years of successful operation giving the client a more efficient and productive manufacturing process.
