For decades GEA provides centrifuges and complete process lines to obtain proteins and fats from various raw materials. From animal by-products such as fat, blood, skins and bones to vegetable sources like soy, sunflower or rapeseed up to the newest alternative resources such as pea, rice, insects and micro-algae, there is hardly any raw material that does not need centrifugal separation technology for the processing into its ingredients.
Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the nutritional benefits and characteristics of the products they use, this also applies more and more to pet food. The demand for healthy, naturally produced pet food is growing. This again affects the complete production chain of pet food ingredients: the increasing concerns about safety and quality have an impact on growing and breeding the resources, their handling and transportation and often require sanitary processing.
With our expertise and long history in food processing, safe and smart CIP solutions are part of our DNA. FDA-approved and components according to 1935/2004/EG, special materials, the design of hollow spaces, corners and surfaces to ensure optimal cleaning as well as a defined arrangement of spray nozzles, our centrifuges and processing lines for fats and proteins are fully CIP capable. We can even plan and implement different CIP options – in one go or stage-by-stage so that the rest of your plant can keep on processing.
Sanitary processing is one aspect, product quality and high yields of the different ingredients are at least equally important and it is often enough the centrifuge and its performance that determines your results. The raw materials used for obtaining proteins and fats are naturally grown which means their composition changes. To always get the best result out of your centrifuge you have to be able to adapt the machine to those changes. This is why we have developed numerous features to adjust running parameters to the individual process optimum.
Apart from single centrifuges GEA provides ready-to-connect skid installations including tanks, pumps, valves and control cabinets up to complete process lines.
With our pioneering work in designing centrifuges and production processes, we enabled the industry-scale production for dairy products like strained yoghurt, quark and fresh cheese. Our centrifuges ensure economical and efficient production and the achievement of a product with a consistent taste and texture.
Decanter centrifuges are the heart of every wet separation process line to obtain plant proteins for the use as e.g. meat alternatives or sport drinks and snack bars. Learn more about the design features decanters should optimally have for the recovery of plant proteins.
With the Crude Oil Treatment System, GEA has designed a flexible but easy-to-integrate solution for the continuous dehydration and desalting of crude oil in various process setups in upstream and downstream processes.
