Abstract: The production of sugar beet (I) can be increased if addnl. amts. of I are recovered from molasses. Ca saccharate (II), also cold saccharate, can be pptd. by powd. lime from dild. molasses (to 6% of I) at below 18°. Lab. expts. have shown that II contg. 14-15% sucrose and 15-16% CaO can be used for clarification of sugar-beet juice (III). The mixt. of diffusion III and returned over-carbonated muddy III (ratio 1:1) can be progressively prelimed (Dedek-Vas´atko) at 60° by II and simultaneously limed by II and carbonated at 85°. The filterable and sedimentary qualities of III are of such a good quality that rotary vacuum filters can be installed which will result in an economical mechanization of I production.
