Technologies for Efficient Separation of Liquids

GEA offers world-leading mechanical separation technologies for diverse industries, and our separators and decanters are a secure investment for processing any type of chemical.

GEA separators and decanters are designed to operate with hazardous chemicals, and we can offer equipment that is manufactured using corrosion-resistant special materials, such as Hastelloy.

GEA separators are vertical bowl high-speed centrifuges, running up to 10 000 G. They are used primarily for the clarification and separation of liquids with and without solids content. When the solids content in the suspension to be processed is higher, decanters can be used.

Our decanters are capable of processing suspensions with up to 60 percent solids and are often placed upstream of a centrifuge to achieve high clarification efficiencies and maximum dewatering. They are also employed for the separation of liquids with simultaneous removal of solids.
