In industry and commerce, the requirements for heating and process heat are highly specific. Heat pumps can very often satisfy these needs. Thanks to their efficiency and short amortization period, they represent an environmentally friendly and economically attractive alternative to conventional heating systems. A heat pump raises heat from its surroundings – water, or waste process heat – from a lower temperature level to a higher.
A crucial factor in the planning and selection of a heat pump system is the type of intended application. The diversity of the industrial heat pump makes it attractive for many applications where both heating and cooling are required.
If requirements change from heating to cooling in accordance with the seasons – as is typically the case in office buildings and greenhouses – a GEA heat pump can provide the heating in winter and cooling in the summer. In the seasons where both heating and cooling are required the efficiency can be more than 10 times better than a conventional boiler/chiller installation.
Whatever application may interest your company for a heat pump, it will – when its overall life cycle is considered – amortize quickly by a reduction in energy consumption and emissions that affect the global climate. In addition, emphasis is placed on using natural refrigerants such as ammonia wherever possible.
Heat pumps are a great solution that can help to decarbonize the heat supply. In this introduction video on heat pumps our experts from GEA Heating & Refrigeration Technologies, Thomas Lergenmueller and Kenneth Hoffmann, explain alongside helpful illustrations the principles of a heat pump and how they can help you to decarbonize your heat supply.

Customized heat pumps are designed for optimized efficiency and a wide range of temperatures and capacities. They serve all common industrial applications and district heating. They are applied when special conditions or requirements outstrip the limits of our standard heat pumps.
GEA has launched an innovation that combines highly efficient cooling and heating in a single product. The new GEA Blu-Red Fusion is a combination of the successful GEA Blu chillers (low stage) and GEA Red heat pumps (high stage).
Open type GEA heat pumps are designed for the direct connection to a refrigeration plant. They use condenser heat as the heat source by efficiently recovering the heat with minimum pressure loss using a compact open intercooler. They can provide heat for any industrial process and are commonly used in food and dairy plants.
GEA RedAstrum is the standard ammonia screw compressor heat pump that meets the increasing demand for efficient heating. The series is known for its wide capacity and temperature range. It features high-end components and a sophisticated, compact design.
