3-Phase Separating Decanters for animal and fish by-products

3-Phase decanters are widely used when processing by-products from fish. They are installed for the whole fish process, the 3-Phase process, for the recovery of protein hydrolyzate or the treatment of canning wash water. In the animal by-products industry they are used for the processing of extraction residues in gelatin production, flotation sludge treatment and wet rendering.

Whether fish or meat: our new GEA ecoforce decanters feature optimum design to cope with the frequently difficult working conditions in the two sectors.

With this new decanter platform GEA has now combined the demands for high mechanical and sanitary reliability as well as the wish for maximum flexibility for investment and practical operation. The result: GEA offers an entire decanter family in a uniform design concept from the smallest right through to the largest decanter, ranging from the drive to the identical pedestal bearing principle. The advantage for the user, operating personnel and spare part maintenance: uniformity across the board. Nonetheless, due to its modular principle every decanter can be customized right down to the smallest detail: Low or high torque, flat or steep conical angle, low or high differential speed, hot or normal operation, oil or grease lubrication, special alloys for corrosion and erosion resistance or hygienic design with rotating feed pipes, spray nozzles and food grade materials.
