Industrial Refrigeration & Heating for Food Processes
A safe, sustainable cold chain requires carefully controlled, low-temperature ranges each step of the way — for both processing and post-processing environments. GEA’s sophisticated, compressor-based process cooling systems are designed to meet these precise condition requirements. This results in thermal-optimal food production environments, ideal product storage and distribution areas, minimization of perishables and extended product shelf life.
Meeting process-critical requirements
GEA’s long and successful history of innovation and leadership in the design and production of world-class industrial refrigeration solutions — which includes compressors; compressor packages and complete, turnkey facilities — provides customers with confidence that their cooling systems can be relied upon to deliver peak performance over the long haul.
GEA is one of the largest suppliers of process technology for the food industry and a wide range of other industries. Our goal is to be the customer’s preferred partner in the industries we serve. As the world’s population increases, so does the demand for safe, quality food products produced by efficient, sustainable technologies. GEA stands ready to help our customers meet these challenges and serve as a long-term strategic partner.
From privately owned, single-site operations to the largest and most respected food-producing companies in the world, GEA provides customized solutions designed to deliver long-term value. Here are just a few examples of GEA’s applied expertise:
- Distribution and storage facility cooling for an international grocer expanding to a new continent;
- Energy-saving refrigeration system control technology for a thriving, family-owned regional bakery;
- Turnkey process cooling facility for a leading producer of a wide range of dairy-based products;
- Sustainable heat pump system for a diversified, multi-national consumer and pet food producer.
The heart of our systems
Compressors are the heart of the refrigeration system. GEA’s long history of technological innovation and product quality in the design and manufacture of compressors and compressor systems provides the confidence our customers require for their operations.
Reusing Waste Heat
Related to the food cooling process, GEA also has its eye on “green” savings by installing industrial heat pumps. By identifying in which processes waste heat can be recovered and diverted to other processes — like water & brine heating, drying, cooking, blanching, pickling, pasteurization, sterilization, dehydration and cleaning — we help customers work toward achievement of their sustainability goals and save money in the process. GEA’s ambition is to work with our customers to tailor environmentally sound, sustainable and highly efficient solutions to meet every requirement.
