DAIRY EVAPORATION PLANTS

GEA has partnered for decades with the global dairy industry to develop versatile technologies for just about every stage of milk processing. Working hand-in-hand with you, our customers, we’ve configured and installed optimized evaporation plants for a wide range of dairy products, from nutritional formula and milk powders, to whey protein concentrates and sweetened condensed milk.

Our solutions span the entire process, from pretreatment, heat treatment and the evaporation step itself, to separation and post treatment. And of course, all of our components and equipment are designed to meet the stringent hygiene and microbiological safety requirements. Fast and effective CIP, and process automation, where possible, reduce downtime and waste, aid efficiency and reproducibility, and help to keep your productivity flying.
