For the Employment of the Mono-Sulphite of
Lime Process in the Manufacture of Sugar.
This process consists of an altogether special
method of preparing Sulphite of Lime, and of
appljin; it in the decoloration and purification of
cane-jaice and sjrap.
The conditions which mnst be fulfilled for the
utilisation of this process are comprised therefore
in two kinds of operations, the one having refer
ence to the manufacture of the substance itself,
the other, the manner of employing it.
PREPARATION OF JlOXO-SCLPniTK OF LIME.
The .Mono-Sulphite of Lime, (insoluble, sul
phite of lime, proto-sulphite cf lime,) is easily
susceptible of deterioration, which renders it but
very little sensible to the action pf weak acid
contained in large liquid masses, iW therefore, re
quires to be manufactured at the very moment of
its employment, nnd in a particular manner.
In the method of its preparation resides the
success of its application to cane-juice and syrups.
It is important, therefore, to follow implicitly the
following directions, which, happily, arc of prompt
and ea3y execution.
First, however, it is necessary to say a few
words as to the action of the apparatus, which
has been so adapted as to permit of the manu
facture of the substance employed at the very
time its use is required.
This apparatus, (see note at ond.) by its eolidity,
particular arrangement, and the perfect regularity
of its action, satisfies a3 nearly as is possible tie
exigencies and usages of Colonial manufacture.
Producing, by means of tho combustion of raw
sulphur, a solution invariably charged with an
equal quantity of sulphurous acid, it allows of
tbe continuous manufacture of sulphite of lime
in tbe phce where it is constructed, and the cost
price of this substanco is only that of the sulphur
and limo which enter into iU combination, or in
other words, a nearly insignificant sum.
A ton of sulphite of lime, which contains 532
lbs. of sulphur nnd 032 lbs. of lime, can not in
fact cost, even taking into account tho labor re
quired for its production, more than fc,om 2 1G
to 3, that is to say, less than what only the
packing and freight of the same quantity of this
substance would cost if shipped from Kuropo.
The manufacture of the sulphite of lime in the
sugar-house itself has, therefore, not only the ad
vantage of permitting tho employment of nil
excellent substanco until now never usefully ap
plied, but also albws it to bo obtained nt an
extremely low price, thu3 freeing planters from
the exigencies of foreign traders.
To function tho apparatus, a small quantity of
sulphur is set fire to in the furnace (about ft).)
and when, after n few minutes, tho product of tho
combustion dUcngages itself in abundance through
the chimney, tho water reservoir is opened, and a
small stream of water allowed to flow, of snch a
volume that when the valve which is placed at
the end of tho last column of the apparatus is
three-fourths closed, the sulphur continues to
burn freely without tho escapo of any whito va
pors through the chimney being perceptible. In
this way, nearly tho wliolo of tbe sulphur is
utilised, and forms itself into sulphurous acid.
This accumulates in the apparatus, being dissolved
in the thin shower of water which falls slowly
into the cylindrical reservoir to which is attached
a discharge tap. In order to regulato the action
of the apparatus in a proper manner, it is neces
sary, first, to add from time to time a large hand
ful of sulphur, which is to be put in the furnace ;
second, to keep np a moderate and continuous flow
of water; third, to open tho valve only sufficiently
to permit of an active combustion without an ap
preciable loss of white vupor through the chimney
And now, the apparatus taing sufficiently
charged with the sulphurous solution, the follow
ing is the next step : By means of a leaden pipe
communicating at its upper end with the reser
voir tap, the liquid in the apparatus is allowed to
flow to the bottom of a circular wooden tub,
snch as the half of an ordinary beer cask. Be
fore, however, tha acid liquid is allowed to flow
into this, a small quantity of common lime, or,
better still, quick-lime finely sifted, must be
placed on the spot on which tho liquid will fall.
As soon 03 the liquid falls on the lime, the- whole
must be stirred round, and the circular movement
thus given to tho mass must be continued I h rough
out tho operation, that is, until all the limo is
transformed into sulphite. This Information is
complete when the liquid contained in the tub.
previously milky white, becomes of a decidedly
Bat it is necessary, and is an essential point in
tbe operation, that a little more of tha sulphurous
acid should be allowed to flow from the apparatus
than is requisite to saturate tho lime. To de
termine the quantity,' there should be plunged
into the liquid contained in the tub a piece of
litmns paper which should at once turn red. This
acidity in the yellow mixture formed in the tub
need not be very decided, but it is indispensable ;
for, otherwise, it will not be long before the
sulphite will undergo modifications rendering it
little fit to act efficaciously upon tho cane-juice
As lime varies in quality according to tho care
taken in its preparation, it would be difficult to
determine once and for always what quantity of
this substanco should be ad Jed Us the sulphurous
solution so a3 to manufacture the Mono-Sulphite,
bat a preliminary experiment, easily made, wiI
enablo anyone to do so in his individual case :
Having allowed the sulphurous acid lo run into

intended to be afterwards nsed. say 2 tt3. n to
be thrown by small portions into the liquid in the
tub until its acidity shall have nearly disappeared.
All thai then remains to be done is to weigh the
lima which remains in hand, so as to ascertain
the quantity required for 20 gallons of the sul
phurous solution. Having these data it will ba
easy tojiave a little tin vessel made which will
serve to measure very approximately the quantity
of lime required for each operation.
The litmus paper will indicate', in case of any;
change in the, quality. cf-lVw-liBMreissfysd,
whether, the., dose, of Ihk ftalistanee sfcoald be
augmented or diminished. The test hy raeBi of
this paper is necessary at each operation by per
sons not accustomed to prepare tbe sulphite of
lime adapted to this process, for alone by that
test can be recognized .the exaci degree of acidity
of tbe yellowish mixture ; and, 03 wo have already
stated, one of the essential conditions of the
efficacy of tho sulphite of lime is, that it is re
tained in a liquid somewhat acid until the mo
ment of its employment. This acidity, too weak
to increase to an apprccitble extent that of tho
cane-juico to which- the mixture is added only in
the proportion of from 2 to 3 per cent., serves to
keep isolated, and in a pure state, tho fine parti
cles which constitute the pair-Jar under form of
which the sulphite of lime has" been obtained. It
prevents, in fact, their change on their enrface
into a mixture or Sulphate and Snb-Sulphite,
which, enveloping them as it wero in a shell,
renders them unadapted to be submitted to the
action of weak and diluted acids.
To resume, then :
1. Tho snlphito of lime must bo prepared at
the same moment that it is to be employed.
2. It mast be obtained in tho form of a very
3. It must be retained in the liquid in the form
in which it has been made, so that the particles
or grains of which it is constituted shall remain
isolated and entirely pure.
Before using the limo in tho preparation of tho
sulphite, it will always bo well to wash it, as by
this means tha small quantity of soluble salts it
contains will be removed.
MODK OF F.MPLOrltEXT FOR CASK-JUICE.
Mono-Sulpbito of Limo being insoluble, neces
sitates certain precautions if it i3 to be success
fully employed. It is not sufficient that it should
be mixed with the cane-juice, but care must bo
taken that it is in conlnct with the sugar-juice
during the greater part of the timo occupied in
the proces of evaporation.
When the cane-juico fior73 from the rollers of
the sugar-mill it onght to be rapidly cleared from
all the bits of cane-trash it brings with it by
means of a strip ot brass not. It should then be
allowed to settle in the tank from eight to ten
minutes, so as to allow of tho precipitation of tho
finer particles of trash which tho sieve has let
Daring thi.i time, in order to provint any
fermentation, the surfiico of the cane-juico is
sprinkled with small quantities of the sulphite of
limo mixtnro: which will accumulate in a great
measure in tho scum thrown up, and -a ill ulti
mately be found at the bottom of the tank when
tho cane-juico is run out.
The cane juice is then conducted to tho evapor
ating apparatus, and to it is to bo added from 2
to 3 per cent, of the yellowish liquid, or slightly
acid liquid containing tho sulphitu of lime in
By tho movement given (o the cane-juice, the
sulphite, of limo, owing to the smallne3s of the
particles tn which it has been obtained, spreads
easily over tbe wholo mass of tho sugar-liquid,
upon which it will soon exercise its double
influence, that is to say, its purifying au.l decolor
Here it must be observed that thero are two
methods of openi'ion, deponding on, 1st, whether
the cane-juice is to bo sent directly into the bat
tery, (boiling-paus.) or, 2d, whether it has to
submit to a preliminary defecation in double
bottomed tanks heated by steam, and then con
centrated in the battery, or in tbe tripple-efiect
I. In the first case, the chief care during the
open fire evaporation process should bo tho isola
tion of the scum thrown up in the firit two boil
ing pans, and to prevent its mixture with tho
liquid contained in the forward pans. The surest
means to obtain thi3 result is to make use.of a
plank fixed at 18 inches below the surface of the
liquid, and adjusted throughout the length. of the
partition which separates the second and third
pans, and to for n an opening in the middle of
tho plank in which should be placed a moveable
blade. This should bo so swung as to allow only
tho purified cane-jaice to pass free from scum.
But thero Is one peculiarity which can not be
too mach insisted on, as upon it depends entirely
tho success of the process : it is that which con
cerns tho re-action in tbe sugar-juico. It is es
sential that tins re-action be slightly acid during
the whole duration ol tho work, not alone when
the joico is in the battery, but when ho clarified
juice, after sufficient decantering, i3 concentrated
in tho vacuum pan, or iti a low-temperature ip
paratns. The neutralization of this acidity, even
for a moment, will inevitably lead to modification
in the remits the process is destined to realize.
At the same time it would be wrong to allow
this acidity to develop itself beyond a certain
degree, fur pushed too far it will cause great in
conveniences. Here, again, tbe litmu3 parpcr is
to be employed, so as to ascertain the precise
limit which should be preserved. A slip of this
paper plunged in tbe different pans will constantly
indicate the acidity, which increases 03 the last
pan is approached ; and this is explained by tbe
fact of tho concentration of the liquid and the
liability of the cane-juico to becoma acid nnder
the influence of beat. If no lime were added,
tbe natural acidity of the j lice, which is gradually
evaporating, would exceed the degree necessary
to be maintained.
It is requisite, then, to throw on the boiling
surface in the fourth and fifth pans, (and there
only,) a certain quantity of very weak lime and
water, in such a way as lo reduce the acidity of
the sugar liquid when that acidity augments be
yond measure ; but a too large quantity of lime
and water mu3t be carefully avoided, (Or it is im
portant that the a:id or acids of tbe juice Shall
never be altogether neutralized.
To determine this essential point in.the process,
it mnst be stated that tbe acid rc-actiort. to be
maintained ought to be each thai tbe clarified
juice marking 20 to 22 3 BeaumV ahall redder;
the litmns paper to a somewhat greater extent
than when it U placed in the cane-jaice directed
into the bxUer.'
The carefal observation of this degretS of acidity
is most important In point of fact, tbe acidity
to be maintained sbonld be only somewhat mora
apparent than that which i natural to the cane
jaice. By ocliaj in the way described, the quantity
of sugar ioterverted, as has been shown by nu
merous conparative analyses, is very much tcss
than is generally produced by other procei5e3, for

juice crystallizes nnder this process, rendara it
necessary that the cooked juice should be run off
when less firm than is usual in other processes.
The tnrbinage is easily effected and requires less
water to be used than ia ordinarily the case when
whitening sugar in a complete manner.

Mono-Solphilo of lime mixture is introduced
directly into the defecator, but only 2 per cent
is employed. After having thoroughly mixed it
with the juice, the defacaticn is proceeded witb.

Then the scum is removed, and the sugar liquid
is allowed to run into tha reservoir in which tho
decantering is effected. This being accomplished,
the juico is drawn off, and at the moment it flows
into the battery a further quantity of tho Sn!

It is then easy to obtain from the first com.
mencement a complete defacatlon. which simpli
fies and ameliorates tho employ of tbe tripple
effect system. In this case the following is done :
The cane-jucice,to which only small dososj of
tho sulphite of limo inij.lure is added to prevent
fermentation, is directed into the dcsbte-boltom
tanks, where it is submitted at first to an ordinary
defacation by means or lime. This is thrown in
little by little 10 tho form of a fine powder, and
the quantity to be employed ought to bo such that
after the removal of tho scum, the juico should
evidently possess the same degree of aridity as
before the introduction of the lime. This result
is generally obtained by employing six to seven
ounces of limo for about CO gallons of juice.
Tho defacation accomplished, and tbe scum
removed, the Sulphite mixturewhich, boacver,
should bo made slightly mora acid than when it
is employed in tho battery, is introduced into the
liquid mass to tbe extent of 3 per cent Tha
whole is then mixed up and stirred about several
times ; it is again heated during eight to ten
minutes, and il is allowed to run into reservoirs
where the decantation is effected very rapidly.
The cane-juico thus prepared can bo concentrated
by the tripple-effect system without tearing any
deposit worth mentioning. .
MODE OF UMrLOYMRXT FOR gYRUrg.
Tho syrups remaining from tho tnrbinago of
sugars, when treated with Mono-sulphite of Lime,
givo most advantageous results. Under tie in
llueuco of that agent, syrups become purified,
decolorized, and crystallized with remarkable
. TLo inodo'of employing tho sulphite of limo
doe not differ from that already indicated in the
treatment of cane-!uicc. The quantity alone has
to be varied accord ng to tho degree of decolora
tion and purification obtained tbrorgh the pre
vious action of the sulphite on the cane-juicc.
This quantity should be from 1 to 5 per cent,
of the volume of gyrnp brought to 25 s B.. that
is to say. from 1 to 5 gallons of the yellowish
sulphite of limo mixture lo 100 gallons of syrup
mioglcd with water to tha degreo most con
venient for its cooking, namely, 25 B.
Tho syrup should be recently produced, and
have an acidity very nearly the same as that of
tbe clarified juico taken from the battery. When
it is not fresh, lime and water must bo added be
fore treating it with the sulphite. In point ot
fact, the syrup should bo mado, as far as possiblo
with regard to acidity, to rcsumblo tha Vcsoa,
and the quantity of Sulphite of Lime to ba em
ployed should be mora or less in proportion as
the syrup is darker colored and less pure.
Thero is ona poiut. to which it is most im
portant to csll attentionand that is,' that syrup
have generally a great tendency to become acid
as soon as their temperature risos above tha or
dinary heat. Consequently, it is ofun best to
add to them a certain quantity of lime and wider
before applying the Mono-Sulphitn. This quan
tity of lime and water shocld ba in proportion lo
the greater or less facility with which tha
syrups become acid when their temperature is
J Under these circumstances, great care should
ba exercised in observing tbe degree of acidity
of the syrup3, nnd before raising their tempera
tcro enough limo should he added to keep this
acidity sufficiently weak during the whcla boiling
Manufactured by this process, syrup mpjr.i
have a perfect grain and a very fine color. Thi3
amelioration, however, is not entirely due to tho
difect influence of the substance "employed ; it )
also results from the purification to which tha
Vcsoa has already been submitted, and tho
absence in the syrnp of those foreign soloole
matters which, as is koown, are ono of tha prin
cipal obstacles to tbo crystallization of sunn of
j the second boiling.
