Spray drying

Safety & 24/7 production

GEA spray drying plants feature a suite of integrated components and technologies that we’ve designed to give you confidence in the safety of your processes, equipment, and people, while supporting your drive for 24/7 production.

Uncompromising safety, day and night

GEA spray dryers have been developed to give you safe, sanitary dairy processing. Key technologies, including our Clean Purge and DRIVENT® systems, help to reduce explosion risks and their potential impact, while our SPRAYEYE®, COTECTOR® and fire safety systems monitor the process and warn operators if there’s any increased risk of fire or smouldering powders.

Safety audits point to the best way forwards

We can carry out a thorough safety assessment and audit of your site, evaluating fire and explosion hazards, reviewing plant zoning, and providing explosion protection documentation. We can then talk about which GEA components and equipment could best help to optimize safety, increase uptime and support 24/7 production, and also improve working conditions for your operators. Whether you are planning a new spray drying plant, or are looking to upgrade your existing system, your local GEA representative can tell you more.
