Abstract


ABSTRAC
The purpose of this study was to modify and test the evaporator on the production of plam sugar; comparing the processing time of plam sugar between using traditional and modified evaporators to compare the fuel requirements.
The result of this study indicated that the process of plam sugar processing using 3 kg LPG gas fuel still take by a long time which was 3 hours 24 minutes using a modified evaporator and 3 hour 9 minutes using a traditional evaporator. Whereas, the process of processing palm sugar  traditionally using wood fuel  was 1 hour 45 minutes. The fuel consumption rate using modified evaporator with 3 kg LPG gas fuel was 1.06 kg/hour; the fuel consumption rate when processing plam sugar using a traditional evaporator with 3 kg

 
 
LPG gas fuel was 1.17 kg/hour; while the fuel consumption rate when processing palm sap traditionally with wood fuel was 25.88 kg/hour. The  efficiency of processing palm sugar using  modified evaporator with 3 kg LPG gas fuel was 46%, the efficiency of processing palm sap using a traditional evaporator with 3 kg LPG gas fuel was 45% and the efficiency of traditional processing of palm sap with wood fuel was 11% .
Keywords: processing time, fuel consumption, evaporator efficiency
