GEA valves and components for industrial refrigeration: Highly effective and economical solutions from a versatile program.
Since 1893, GEA has been building centrifuges which combine high separating efficiencies, clarifying efficiencies and throughput capacities with maximum savings in terms of energy, water and disposal costs.
Based on the experience gained with more than 3000 process applications and a procedure for rapidly translating innovations into marketable processes, GEA provides profitable answers to some of the most urgent questions of our time.
Only efficient handling of valuable resources will ensure our quality of life without endangering the fundamental basis of future generations. Healthy growth – this is the objective of GEA's separation technology.
GEA separators are designed for liquid-based applications. Using centrifugal force, they are used for separating suspensions consisting of two or more phases of different densities, i.e. they can be used for liquid-liquid separation, for liquid-liquid-solid separation or for liquid-solid separation. They are equally as effective at separating liquid mixtures at the same time as removing solids.
The decanters hour has come as soon as the solids content in the suspension to be processed is particularly high. These machines provide the benefits of high clarifying efficiency and maximum dewatering as well as the separation of liquids with the simultaneous removal of solids. The main requirements in this respect include a high bowl speed, a powerful drive for the scroll and a scroll speed which automatically adapts to the solids loading in the feed.
Combining process monitoring using online analyzers, together with solid process engineering principles and advanced process modelling techniques will enable processes to be actively controlled in order to compensate for input variations.
Data capture and metering systems measure, monitor and ensure traceability of collected milk or similar liquid product from farm to table.
Every plant or machine, which is designed for a reliable long-term operation, requires a control unit that enables the communication between the different system parts. It is one of the most important component that guarantees reliability and efficient operation.
As system integrators we bring our knowledge from process technology and plant engineering together with software products from market leaders.
GEA has the optimal cooling and air conditioning solutions for your requirements. We place particular value on energy efficiency, reliability, cost efficiency and sustainability.
Compression Heat Pumps for industry and commerce.
Steam jet heaters are used to heat liquids by direct injection of heating steam. The heating steam condensate mixes with the liquid being heated. Steam jet cooling systems are often used to cool a liquid directly without any additional refrigerant by means of flashing into the vacuum.
You will find our compressors across todays food and beverage industries, spanning the entire cold chain. In addition to many other uses, these compressors are ideally suited for refrigeration in supermarkets and food transport. Likewise, they support state-of-the-art refrigeration and air-conditioning solutions in petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, marine and leisure facility applications. We develop these compressors as a global refrigeration expert with more than a century of experience.
GEA offers a wide range of compressors for the industrial refrigeration and air conditioning. They are designed with a special focus on energy-efficiency, reliability, safety and easy maintenance. GEA's industrial compressor program comprises reciprocating and screw compressors as well as packaged compressor systems for cooling and heat pump applications.
GEA gas compressors are key system components in oil & gas extraction and processing operations, in power generation plants with gas turbines, in chemical processing and in numerous other industries.
GEA jet compressors are constructed to unite the operating conditions accurately and efficiently. It is important to consider behaviour under varying operating conditions to find the accurate design of a jet compressor.
GEA carbonating systems are designed for the highly accurate continuous carbonation of beverages. The special injection process uses CO2 very efficiently, thus saving costs and reducing the impact on the environment. The finely effervescent distribution of the gas ensures a taste experience to tickle the palate.

Deaeration is the removal of dissolved gasses such as oxygen and carbon dioxide. All beverages are sensitive to dissolved oxygen; taste and color can be substantially changed. Additionally, dissolved oxygen adversely affects the filler performance. Therefore, it is important to use optimally deaerated water for the production of beverage like soft drinks.

Standardization is defined as the industrial adjustment of milk or cream fat content to a precisely specified or desired value. In general, the fat content of raw milk is higher than the fat content of the various dairy products to be manufactured. The standardized fat content of these products usually ranges between a minimum of 0.5 and a maximum of 3.5 percent.
