Centrifuges & Separation Equipment

Since 1893, GEA has been building centrifuges which combine high separating efficiencies, clarifying efficiencies and throughput capacities with maximum savings in terms of energy, water and disposal costs.

Mechanical Separation

GEA is the leading company in the world in the field of mechanical separation. We provide technology solutions for the food, chemistry, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, energy, shipping and environmental industries, providing equipment for the efficient processing of liquids and liquid mixtures and ensuring considerable added value for the end product.

Based on experience gained with more than 3000 process applications and a procedure for rapidly translating innovations into marketable processes, GEA can supply a comprehensive range of mechanical separation technologies, including products such as homogenizers, pumps, valves and tank cleaning systems.

Our integrated and co-ordinated approach to research and development, know-how and technology transfer, and a culture of continuous innovation encourages the optimisation of technologies and the development of new markets. Synergies are utilized to provide application-specific solutions that are fully adapted to meet the needs of individual customer wishes.

Providing solutions in areas such as enzymes, hormones, human blood proteins, mammalian cell culture, pharmaceutical proteins, starter cultures and vaccines, the company’s technology plays a key role in the recovery of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and optimizing production processes and products. 

Centrifugal separation is a vital part of vaccine production. Processing valuable cellular components in a reliable, smooth and efficient way is an economic driver, whereas safe and superior hygienic processing is a technological one. Combined, they offer excellence, innovation and efficiency — the core features of all our products. In short, GEA has been instrumental in advancing mechanical separation technology. 


Fresh cheese uncovered with GEA separation technology

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.


Plant protein recovery with decanter centrifuges

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.


GEA Crude Oil Treatment Systems

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.
