From ingredient management to processing, filling and storage; we apply our proven expertise in cooling and chilling solutions to maximize beverage quality, reduce energy costs and thoughtfully address environmental considerations.
Beverage production — of end products like soft drinks, coffees, teas, beers and juices — relies on industrial refrigeration & heating systems to provide precise temperatures during various processing phases to ensure product quality, hygiene and safety.
By delivering the right temperatures to the right place at the right time in the production cycle, GEA’s sustainable, energy-efficient cooling and heating solutions ensure that our customers, consumers and our environment are well served.
GEA’s commitment to providing sustainable solutions to the beverage industry includes the use of natural refrigerants such as ammonia (NH3), which has an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) rating of 0 and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) rating of 0.
GEA’s beverage industry expertise includes brewing. And our refrigeration and heating solutions help our customers achieve what they care about most — high-quality beer and optimal energy efficiency.
GEA serves the needs of both smaller craft brewers as well as large-scale, industrial brewers as a single-source brewery supplier by providing full processing lines; which include sustainable, energy-efficient cooling and heating systems.
The highest percentage of electrical energy needed for beverage processes often goes to meeting precise temperature requirements. These systems therefore represent the largest opportunity to reduce costs. GEA identifies these energy-saving and energy-management opportunities and provides beverage production facilities with measurable, innovative solutions with short payback times aimed at reducing the total cost of ownership.
Related to the beverage cooling process, GEA also has its eye on “green” savings by installing industrial heat pumps. By identifying the processes from which waste heat can be recovered and diverted to other processes and needs — like pasteurization, pulp melting, sink water, environmental comfort, and CIP — we help customers move toward achieving 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.
Our focus on sustainability begins with conducting a complete analysis and assessment of all processes. This provides the basis from which customized solutions are designed and implemented for the comprehensive integration of high-value energy concepts. The result is a beverage facility optimized for efficiencies, reducing both energy consumption and the carbon footprint.
