SMRI PI Determination


The Sugar Milling Research Institute (SMRI) in South Africa has developed a new device for measuring cane preparation called the Displacement Rate Index or DRI.

Traditionally cane prepaation to assess shredder performance has been measured by the pol in open cells method or the preparation index (PI) method. This has required two samples of cane.

Now the DRI uses only ONE SAMPLE OF CANE.
The DRI washes a sample of prepared cane with a reticulated water supply. DRI is automatically calculated from the rate of increase in brix concentration throughout the washing procedure.
