GEA biofuel Separator for sustainable shipping

GEA biofuel Separator

GEA biofuel Separators are tailored to the specific characteristics of biofuels, efficiently separating water and contaminants to meet the stringent requirements of the industry.

GEA biofuel Separator
In the pursuit of a carbon-neutral transportation economy, the adoption of biofuels is a critical step toward decarbonizing shipping. The use of biofuels such as HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) and FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) is a proactive choice to reduce emissions and improve sustainability. GEA biofuel Separators are specifically designed for the purification of marine biofuels and offer a reliable solution to ensure efficient performance and longevity.

Biofuel purification excellence

Biofuels such as HVO and FAME offer a cleaner alternative for diesel engines, reducing greenhouse gas and sulfur emissions. However, effective purification is essential to ensure peak performance and prevent costly engine wear. 

GEA biofuel Separators are designed specifically for the unique characteristics of biofuels, efficiently separating water and contaminants to meet the stringent requirements of the industry. Whether it's the acidity of FAME in accordance with EN 14214 or ASTM D6751, or the lower density of HVO compared to fossil fuel oil, our purifiers excel at meeting various biofuel specifications. Meeting the fuel requirements of ISO 8217:2017, GEA biofuel Separators are versatile and can operate seamlessly with any type of biofuel, ensuring compatibility with the evolving landscape of sustainable fuels.

Performance in a compact design

GEA biofuel Separators feature an integrated direct drive that delivers unmatched performance per square meter of space. This innovative design ensures maximum efficiency while minimizing footprint, making it an ideal choice for vessels where space is at a premium.

Simplicity in service

With user-friendly engineering, GEA biofuel Separators with integrated direct drive offer an extremely simple service concept. This not only facilitates easy maintenance, but also contributes to the longevity and reliability of the system, keeping your operation running smoothly.

Smart connectivity

Stay in control with the smart connectivity features of our separators. Monitor and manage the purification process remotely, enabling proactive maintenance and minimizing downtime. This intelligent integration ensures a seamless and connected experience for optimized efficiency.

Technical upgrading for other generations possible

We understand the value of your existing equipment. That's why GEA offers the option of upgrading older generations such as OSC, OSD, and OSE Separators to make them compatible with the unique characteristics of biofuels.

Benefit from years of proven superior separation performance on board ships, regardless of centrifuge generation.
