Abstract: This method can be used to give an estimate of the polarimetric sucrose content of the wet filter cake from rotary vacuum filters used in the cane processing industry.
The result is used to assess filter performance and the mass of sucrose lost is used in compiling the mill chemical balance.
The precision of the method has not been determined.
