Discover some of our latest technological benefits:
NEW! GEA SmartPacker CX400 sanitary with GEA Smart Sealing System
By adding a new sealing system to our vertical bagger, we have developed a machine that is ideally suited for the frozen food market. The GEA Smart Sealing System uses special metal tape in the sealing area. It eliminates the need to replace Teflon tape on the heated sealing jaws after just a few hours.
The advantages are many including maximizing productivity, reducing downtime, lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) and improving package quality. The bagger will be demonstrated during the show.
GEA MaxiFormer 1000 | Raising the Bar in Drum Forming
GEA MaxiFormer, with patented forming technology, is our most efficient forming solution for high-quality formed poultry, pork and meat replacement products.
It has been designed to address many of the issues traditionally associated with drum forming. By fully understanding the whole process, including critical grinding and chilling operations, GEA made important changes to the technology, which have a major impact on the final product.
High-capacity Injection line | Ultimate control over the injection process
GEA MultiJector with 2mm OptiFlex needles features unrivaled brine injection accuracy with a low standard deviation for excellent product quality and maximum profitability. The injector is seamlessly integrated with GEA's brine preparation equipment. Our GEA SuperChill brine chiller and GEA MultiShaker remove excess brine from both sides of the product, closes needle marks and activates proteins. A fully automatic and fast NeedleCleaner solution is also available to support a highly efficient injection process and food safety.
GEA CookStar 1000 Gen 3 | Pushing the art of industrial cooking
Our third generation GEA CookStar 1000 offers ultimate flexibility by providing the opportunity to dry, steam, cook, roast, and smoke food products with more power, unbeatable precision and better performance. The spiral oven provides higher capacity, better yield, better quality and consistency, increased flexibility, greater efficiency and the lowest lifetime cost.
Adding the SuperHeatSmoke option to the oven enables food processors with in-line production to produce and brand their products with a CleanSmoke label. SuperHeatSmoke is the innovative and award-winning solution for in-line smoking of meat, poultry, seafood and meal components and is generated using a Red Arrow purified smoke condensate. The smoking process is conducted at temperatures above 100 °C.
GEA Freezers | Always Innovating
Proudly setting the standard in freezing solutions since 1999, GEA A-Tec spiral freezers are designed to satisfy the industry’s most stringent safety and hygiene requirements. With the largest installed base of high-capacity freezers in North America, this freezer is a solution like none other.
Our Variable Retention Time Tunnel carton systems (GEA I-VRT) simultaneously handle various product sizes and types with different chilling and freezing profiles. Optimally flexible, the GEA I-VRT fully integrates with in-line processes to support a wide range of freezing and chilling applications. Fully automated, the equipment handles products from production to the freezer or chiller and all the way to the palletizing area.
