The new GEA Hilge HYGIA – versatile and adaptable


The new GEA Hilge HYGIA is a hygienic pump that offers a high degree of flexibility. It completes the GEA VARIPUMP range. In particular, users from the foodstuffs, beverage and pharmaceuticals industry benefit from the tremendous adaptability of these single-stage stainless steel centrifugal pumps with EHEDG certification.

Perfectly adapted to suit customer needs

The GEA Hilge HYGIA has been further improved for operation in multiple production processes and it can be configured to suit individual customer requirements. This series of pumps is offered ex-factory in two sizes and features a high standard of surface quality. A version is also available made of completely pore-free material – i.e. no cast components in the area in contact with a customer product or medium.

The new motor connection concept – developed based on a modular design – enables the GEA Hilge HYGIA to be equipped with a vast array of motors, enabling this concept to satisfy international standards and specifications. Customers can benefit from a high standard of technical support and can rely upon full availability of spare parts. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland the merging of existing service units creates a comprehensive network of service outlets.
