GEA develops advanced powder handling solutions and high quality components for the food, dairy, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. We have the know-how, experience and technology required, including a broad range of components, to configure the best powder conveying system for your product.
From non-friable and non-sanitary powders through to high-value, fragile pharmaceuticals, GEA can supply all the components and systems required.
Both standard products and fragile powders can be transported under lean-phase or dense-phase, using pressure or vacuum.
Pneumatic conveying systems are normally divided into four types depending on whether the material is blown or vacuumed through the pipe, and if the solids : air ratio is high (dense phase) or low (dilute phase).
Our method for conveying fragile products uses patented technology to provide the most gentle and reliable means yet developed to convey a broad range of powdered products and powders.
Our system meets all hygiene standards for food and dairy applications. And, when necessary, the system can be atmospherically sealed, evacuated and filled with an inert gas as part of a modified atmosphere packing solution.
Easy to install and simple to use, clean and maintain, the low product velocity means minimal damage to the powder particles, and because only small quantities of air or gas are used, filters are small and easy to service.
