Agrochemicals

A proven track record in agrochemicals

GEA Agrochemicals middle
GEA has provided innovative solutions in the agrochemicals sector for more than 60 years. We combine our extensive expertise in centrifugal separation, evaporation, crystallization, drying, and granulation, with research and development, to generate added value with respect to both process and production.

Comprehensive and innovative solutions

From R&D to commercial scale, GEA offers complete solutions to meet your specific product requirements.

GEA’s expertise in the agrochemicals sector has been harnessed around the world, from the Atacama desert of Chile to the European sylvinite and carnallite mines, and from the dead sea in the near East to caprolactam and methyl methacrylate facilities in Asia and North America. Our technologies can be applied to a wide range of products, including: ammonium salts, pesticides, copper derivatives, zinc and magnesium compounds, urea, potassium chloride, potassium sulfate, and potassium nitrate for the potash fertilizer market.

We offer a wide range of plant technologies, including separators, decanters, evaporators, crystallizers, spray dryers and fluid beds for agglomeration/granulation. These have been developed to meet specific requirements in areas such as free-flowing characteristics, powder granulometry, low dust levels and redispersion parameters.

GEA also provides solutions for the recovery of by-products from waste streams, and for reactive crystallisation (for example, to produce granular ammonium sulfate from spent sulfuric acid and ammonia).

New solutions for producing high-purity MAP fertilizer more economically

Some say the application of fertilizer has done more to reduce world hunger than any other single innovation or action. While perhaps true, the fertilizer sector and growers are unable to rest on these impressive laurels given growing demands for solutions that make more efficient use of nutrient resources and have a less negative impact on the environment. GEA is helping manufacturers to meet some of these tough challenges and reducing their production costs in the process.
