CRUSH IMPROVES

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Moss­man Mill plant avail­abil­ity im­proved in Week 2 although there were some sig­nif­i­cant down­time events through­out the fac­tory. The fac­tory pro­cessed 36,452 tonnes of cane at an av­er­age crush­ing rate of 328 t/hr. The ma­jor down time dur­ing the week was due to re­pairs to No.3 bagasse belt af­ter wear­ing through, which also caused a large choke on No.6 Mill exit chute, and hold ups on the pan floor with on­go­ing fu­gal is­sues. This week also in­cluded a sched­uled main­te­nance day. Fac­tory through­put ton­nage was above bud­get. CCS for the week was 11.21. Cane crushed to date: 51,123 tonnes.
