On the GEA Booth:
This year at POWTECH, some of the innovative and small-carbon-footprint solutions that will be displayed at GEA´s booth include an improved version of GEA´s patented spray dryer:
Ever since its introduction, the MOBILE MINOR® Spray Dryer has enjoyed a unique reputation as the perfect choice lab-scale spray dryer to explore the possibilities of spray drying and produce small-volume powder samples. Now with a new and highly efficient cyclone CEE (Cyclone Extra Efficiency). Robust, reliable and versatile already in its original version, it has a proven record of efficiency thanks to the more than 2500 plants worldwide where it has been installed.
The MOBILE MINOR® is available in different versions designed to cater for different requirements including the drying of aqueous and/or solvent based feedstock. As different atomization techniques give different droplet sizes and drying characteristics, the MOBILE MINOR® is available in three different atomization techniques:
- Rotary atomization
- Atomization by a co-current two-fluid nozzle
- Atomization by two-fluid nozzle in fountain mode
In addition, several options are available for powder collection, explosion protection, cleaning, data logging and other technical features.
Also on showcase will be the new GEA Dosing solution for 0,5-100kg/hr dosing – also known as GEA Scan-Vibro Loss-In-Weight (LIW) dosing system FES. The system is designed for ingredients – additives dosing within the food, dairy, chemical and other industries. The LIW dosing system, the entire feeder, hopper, and material are continuously weighed via high precision load cells and delivering information about discharges flow to the feeder controller with HMI control panel. The system can be operated as stand-alone or be controlled via Ethernet IP from central process line control system Scada.
The GEA LIW system can be delivered together with bag empty station or integrated in process lines. The LIW units is designed for batch and continuous operation, they are tailor-made to meet the customers´ specific requirements and are available in different automation levels. The feeder part can be with an open or closed designed conveyor.
With the possibility to have a high sanitary level or not -according to the customer´s needs, they are an easy operable, trustworthy, and low-maintenance solution for a wide variety of processes. On top of this, GEA LIW dosing systems are also easy cleanable solution.
Key Features (with additional features and options upon need):
- Loss In weight dosing application from 0,5 kg/hr. (500 g/hr.) to 100 kg/hr.
