CALGARY, Alberta – Solex Thermal Science was honoured today to join members of the Colombian Association of Sugar Cane Technicians, Tecnicaña, and our partner in the region, Equisol S.A.S., to discuss the topic of vertical plate technology in the sugar industry. 

Co-presented by Pedro Moran, Global Sales Director of Food Products, Jean-Marc Reichling, Global Sales Director, and Caio Raineri, Operations Consultanttopics covered during the presentation included an overview of how vertical plate technology works, the role of mass flow and indirect heat transfer, as well as identifying where the cooling technology fits in the overall sugar production process.
