Abstract: This method describes the determination of the moisture content in the wet filter cake from rotary vacuum filters used in the cane processing industry.
The result of the determination expressed as g/100 g moisture in filter cake in conjunction with the polarimetric sucrose content and the fibre content in filter cake is used to assess filter efficiency.
The precision of the method has not been determined.
