The pump experts from GEA and ITT Bornemann are now working together to manufacture and market a twin screw pump for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. While GEA has so far concentrated primarily on hygienic centrifugal pumps, the cooperation now means that a joint model of a positive displacement pump is ready for introduction: GEA Hilge NOVATWIN. The GEA Hilge NOVATWIN is a flexible twin screw pump based on the proven Bornemann design that meets the highest hygienic requirements for gentle product handling and clean-in-place (CIP) with just one pump. The new GEA Hilge NOVATWIN will be available in 6 sizes and will be part of the GEA VARIPUMP line, which stands for pumps with a high degree of flexibility for optimum adaptation to individual customer requirements.
At BrauBeviale, GEA will premiere the new GEA brewpub Separator Skid, developed especially for tavern and pub micro-breweries that produce on site. With this essential skid, small brewpubs now get access to GEA’s state-of the-art centrifuge technology at an attractive starter price. The machine comes as a ready-to-plug skid to immediately deliver all the key benefits of beer clarification with a centrifuge: Reproducible quality, optimal dry hopping and decreased production time, meaning more batches in the same time.
Beneath its focus on brewing at BrauBeviale, GEA will also be addressing other beverage industry trends at the trade show in Nuremberg. These include GEA’s 360-degree solutions to produce plant-based beverages. Bean- and cereal-based convenience products such as drinks have gained popularity all over the globe, riding high on health- and environment-conscious dietary trends. “GEA makes the vegetarian segment into one of its focal areas for development. Not only is demand high around the world but GEA’s extensive project experience and technology portfolio allow us to support customers every step of the way, through to service in ongoing operations,” says Colm O’Gorman, GEA Business Manager Plant-Based Beverages.
