OPERATION: For finding pol in cane or bag gases a weighed quantity of the sample along with the predetermined quantity of water is disintegrated and mixed in the vessel for a set time. The homogeneous liquid thus formed is filtered by adding lead sub acetate and is polarised for the pol reading. The Cane sample takes about twelve minutes where as the bagasse sample takes only about five minutes.
For determining fibre in cane or bagasse the above process for a particular sample is repeated or three quantity of water. The liquid is decanted every time and the fiberous material is dried in the bagasse drier and weighted for finding the fibre%.
