Chimney of Kanthan Sago Factory

This 10 meters high chimney of a sago factory in Kanthan,Perak
is a surprise find after looking around for it in Sarawak
i ended up with 3 old mills here
and this is the only one still in operations
that is if its veteran staff can still hold on.
It gets its raw materials, the sago trunks from the coastal area of Perak
and is delivered here by lorry.



A large pile of rubber wood used  for the heating.



Rubber wood is burned here to provide the heat for the drying of the sago flour.




This is the drying area where the wet sago flour is spread evenly on the heated cement floor
under which is where the heat passes through on the way to the chimney.



Abundance of groundnut plants here.
