Geocache Description:

I mitten och slutet av 1800-talet växte den svenska sockertillverkningen upp och började blomstra. 1869 anlades sockerbruket i Arlöv strax utanför Malmö . I början användes jordbruksredskap för att framställa socker ur betor, men i slutet av seklet importerade man maskiner från bl a Tyskland till sockerindustrin. Som den här ångmaskinen utanför Malmö Tekniska Museum – tillverkad av Braunschweigishe Machinenbauanstalt BMA, ett tyskt företag i Braunschweig som finns än idag och som fortfarande tillverkar maskiner för bl a sockertillverkning men betydligt mer högteknologiskt numera. Sockerbruket i Arlöv finns också kvar, numera ägt av Nordic Sugar. Man slutade ta emot betor 1958 och ägnar sig idag åt att raffinera råsocker. Besök gärna Tekniska Museet och Sockermuseet i Arlöv!

In the middle and end of the 1900th Century, Swedish sugar production grow and flourished. The sugar factory in Arlöv near Malmö, was built in 1869 and in the beginning agriculture tools was used in the sugar process, but in the end of the Century machines came from Germany among others. So did this steam machine placed outside Malmö Technical Museum, manufactured by Braunschweigishe Machinenbauanstalt BMA. A German company that still exists and produce machines for sugar manufacture, although in a significant more high tech way. The sugar factory in Arlöv is still going as well. Pay the Sugar Museum in Arlöv and Malmös Technical Museum a visit!
