The range of health products is wide, including ginseng, valerian, spices and liquorice, among others, and a huge variety of herbal ingredients.

From a manufacturing perspective, GEA supplies a complete range of granulation and pelletizing equipment, as well as a comprehensive selection of powder handling, mixing and blending technologies, and machinery for powders designed for capsule filling. We offer engineering services, entire process plant and standalone machines for oral solid dosage form processing for customers in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.

From weighing, dosing and discharging equipment to extruders and spheronizers, and from fluid bed processors and high shear granulators to rotary tablet presses and coaters, GEA has the technology, experience and expertise to provide a complete range of granulation and drying solutions, including batch, continuous and single-pot systems.
