Costa Rica was the site for the XIX Congress of the Sugar Technicians Association of Central America. The Hotel Wyndham Herradura held host to over 600 participants from over 100 countries around the world. Nearly sixty agricultural presentations and over twenty industrial seminars were conducted throughout the week.
Wilfley’s extensive presence in the sugar industry is clear. Why?
- No dilution of product – concentration process
- No water necessary for seals
- Solids handling capabilities – beginning stages and in carbon for purification processes
- Froth handling capabilities
- Higher viscosity handling capabilities – syrups
- No leakage
Which, of course, results in more money to the customer:
- High sugar recovery rates due to no product dilution
- High productivity from equipment reliability
- Reduced equipment down time and maintenance
Wilfley has pumps for all applications in sugar:
- Cleaning and preparation
- Heating and Clarification
- Crystallization in Refinement
The most important sugar producer in Central America is Guatemala with approximately 50% of total Central American production. Nicaragua and Honduras have 20% each in production and the remaining countries split the rest (El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Panama). Guatemala is the third largest producer globally in sugar cane production in metric-tons per hectare (with 2.78 million metric tons per hectare). Who’s there to support, serve, and increase production? Wilfley
