%X The main challenge of the batch sugar production is the large variation of the crystal size distribution (CSD) and in particular high coefficient of variation (CV) values. In this project, the efficiency of three sugar seeds in sucrose extraction studied by crystallization processes. Crystal size distribution (CSD) is the more accurate measure for monitoring the crystallization process. CSD depending on the seeds produced into the sugar solution. So the CSD of three seeds (Milled seed, Slurry seed, and Powdered seed) is investigated by microscopically analysis and then compared. The Coefficient of Variation (CV) in refinery sugar crystallization for Milled, Slurry and powdered seeds respectively are 0.28, 0.31 and 0.36 and in raw syrup, respectively are 0.29, 0.33 and 0.41.Uniformity Coefficient of refinery sugar crystallization for Milled, Slurry and powdered seeds respectively are 5.46, 5.22 and 4.39 and for raw syrup, respectively are 6.00, 5.25 and 3.38. Thus the Slurry seed gives the best results.
