Sugar beet chips are small pieces of sugar beets. These pieces are knocked of the fresh beets as they are shipped to, delivered, washed and culled at factories that produce sugar from sugar beets.
The beet chips will be run through a miniature diffuser where some of the sugar content will be extracted. The beet pulp that is removed from this process will be pressed in the Dewatering Screw Press. The press liquor, with its sugar content, will be returned to the diffuser. The press cake will be sold to a feed milling operation where it will be blended with other feedstuffs.
