GEA is an established expert in raw material handling, mixing and blending, spray drying, tableting, storage, end-of-line packaging, product recovery, cleaning-in-place (CIP) and automation. Whether you need a single component or a complete turnkey plant, GEA has the right technology and experience to meet those requirements in terms of hygienic design, product safety, productivity, profitability and quality.
Liquid Processing Solutions
The manufacture of liquid dishwashing detergents involves minimizing the quantity of the dishwashing liquid that the consumer requires. The generation of foam during production can be challenging, especially in filling lines. GEA not only understands liquid mixing technology but also has a unique understanding of the entire process, based on many years of experience.
High Output Tableting Solutions
For powder-based products, such as dishwasher tablets, we can advise on formulation, tableting applications (size, weight, shape), cost implications, quality control and downstream processing. Depending on the required tablet size (up to 70 mm diameter) and compression force (up to 40 tonnes), GEA offers a range of machines designed to meet your specific application requirements.
In addition, our standard tooling provides a wide variety of size/weight combinations as well as a variety of tablet appearance options (flat faced, bevelled edged, etc.).
And, when it comes to mixing and blending, we have the capacity to blend high volumes of different powders/granules to your exact formulation, from 1 kilo up to 1000 tonnes.
All GEA technology is designed from the outset to aid fast plant development, bring products to market quickly and open up new market opportunities for processors and finished products. Our technology centers support each of the following processes:
- reception and storage of raw materials
- distribution and dosing of raw materials
- mixing technology with buffer tanks
- homogenization systems
- product storage in bulk tanks
- transfer lines to tanks and filling lines
- distribution of utilities such as water, air and steam
- clean-in-place (CIP) systems, automation and process control
