Cane crush hits mi­nor prob­lems

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

MOSS­MAN Mill plant avail­abil­ity and through­put were be­low bud­get for week 5.

The fac­tory pro­cessed 33,643 tonnes of cane at an av­er­age crush­ing rate of 336 t/hr.

The ma­jor down­time was due to wet weather in­ter­rup­tions at the start of the week.

In­side the fac­tory, milling train con­trol is­sues led to nurmer­ous trips of the mills on high lo­cad which also af­fected boiler sta­bil­ity with fre­quent high load swings.

The feed­ing sta­tion also con­trib­uted a high num­ber of stops with a drive mo­tor fault on the main car­rier. CCS for the week was 12.16 and the to­tal crushed so far is 116,698t.
