From November 21 to 24, 2016, GEA presented innovations and proven solutions in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning at the Big5 International Building and Construction Show. With over 3,100 international exhibitors, Big5 is the largest building trade fair in the Middle East, dealing with the industrial sectors construction, air conditioning, refrigeration, water technology and environmental engineering.

GEA presented the GEA Plusbox: a series of complete, modular-design outdoor condenser sets based on semi-hermetic GEA compressors and GEA condensers.The GEA Plusbox, which can be configured according to the individual requirements of plant-systems contractors, is characterized by excellent energy efficiency. With a considerably higher COP (coefficient of performance) than comparable condenser sets from other manufacturers, the Plusbox is an energy pioneer. The product offers generous interior space, which makes work on the system easier.

Additional exhibits are:

  • The air-cooled condensing unit SHG34. GEA offers a comprehensive program of condensing units, with displacement ratings from 5.4 to 122.4 m³/h. GEA will also show condensing units especially suited for high ambient temperatures – such as prevail, for example, in the United Arab Emirates.
  • The ATEX (ATmospheres EXplosibles) compressor designed for use in explosion-risk environments. They are, for example, employed in chillers in Kuwait and ensure optimal air conditioning of container-type control centers that coordinate measurements in the oil and gas fields there.
