Every nutritional formula is blended as a precise mix of multiple ingredients, which can include dry powders and different oil types as well as liquid milk or whey products. The ability to process these complex formulations with consistency and reliability requires gentle, effective mixing technologies.
GEA tailors and supplies versatile equipment for the complete mixing process, whatever the recipe or final format. We understand that you want to ensure accurate batch control, top quality and seamless processing. Our experts will work with you to design mixing systems that safeguard every key requirement, and match your capacity, throughput and plant layout. Upstream of mixing we offer safe and reliable handling and dosing technologies for every type of powder and liquid ingredient, giving you confidence that every component will reach the mixing stage in perfect condition.
Our MIXING FORMULA® system represents a state-of-the-art rethink on traditional mixing technology, so you can achieve high-quality, homogeneous, lump-free concentrates quickly and efficiently. The MIXING FORMULA® technology incorporates a high shear mixer that optimizes the mixing process.
The technology can be configured for the latest continuous processing lines (INLINE FORMULA® Mixer) or supplied as a batch solution (BATCH FORMULA® Mixer).
The unique, versatile multirotor INLINE FORMULA® Mixer comprises a high shear mixing head that both homogenizes the product, and also provides a centrifugal pump effect to feed the downstream process.
The INLINE FORMULA® Mixer can be configured for vacuum-induced powder introduction and/or vacuum-based product deaeration, and supplied with a heating/cooling jacket.
The innovative BATCH FORMULA® Mixer is placed at the bottom of the vessel, and introduces ingredients below the liquid surface, avoiding the need for a recirculation loop. This approach ensures fast wetting and solubilization, and reduces foaming and incorporation of air.
Capable of handling a wide range of ingredients, the single pot BATCH FORMULA® Mixer is energy efficient, saves time, and optimizes clean-in-place (CIP) processes.
Offering high flexibility, the BATCH FORMULA® Mixer is available with the following features:
Avoid upfront investment and preserve capital. GEA Financial Services offer to you attractive conditions to lease your new GEA equipment. Cost occur over time while the machine is used.
Video support designed to provide remote assistance in real-time.
Food Safety and Product Quality are fundamental to your business. Make sure you meet the challenge, and protect your brand, with SAFEXPERT® from GEA.
