Gentle treatment for best quality concentrates

IceCon® Compact


GEA developed a range of standard skid mounted units suitable for the production of liquid food concentrates. IceCon® provides an affordable solution for producing high quality concentrates, without losing quality. The losses in the discharged water are negligible.

This generally produces water that can be re-used in any up/downstream processes or can be sent straight to the drain. The newly developed compact series will be offered as a complete solution.

All relevant components for running a freeze concentration plant are installed on three modules that make up the IceCon® Compact equipment range, meeting the standards for container transport. The modules will be commissioned and tested before shipment ensuring a smooth and fast installation and startup period.

The freeze concentrator requires only electricity and by installing a pre-cooling skid energy can be recovered for an even further reduced CO2 footprint.

The Compact series is available in three sizes:

  • IceCon® Compact 25
  • IceCon® Compact 40
  • IceCon® Compact 60
