Process Refrigeration

Energy efficient refrigeration for your process

Effective refrigeration technologies are critical to many industrial sectors. GEA is a recognized global leader in the development of sustainable and efficient industrial refrigeration plants, systems, compressor packages and heat pumps. We develop refrigeration technologies that we can demonstrate are the safest, most reliable and energy efficient in the world, but that keep our customers’ total cost of ownership as low as possible. Whether the requirement is for a new greenfield project, a major extension or for upgrades and component replacements, GEA works with each customer to tailor environmentally sound, sustainable and highly efficient refrigeration solutions to meet every requirement. From design, to engineering and commissioning, our experts consider even the smallest details.

Refrigeration excellence

GEA strives to innovate. Refrigeration accounts for a major percentage of the overall energy requirements of any industrial process. Ongoing R&D, both in house at GEA and in collaboration with our industrial partners, aims to continue to improve energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Working with clients we have already developed heat pump systems that recycle heat from the refrigeration operation back into production processes, to save energy usage and so reduce costs.

All refrigeration plants and systems from GEA meet international requirements to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our technologies use the natural refrigerants NH3 and CO2, and non-halogenated hydrocarbons. NH3 is one of the most efficient industrial refrigerants and has a completely zero-rated global warming potential (GWP) and ozone depletion potential (ODP).

GEA compressors and refrigeration components are manufactured at our own factories, and our refrigeration systems are serviced and maintained by GEA experts. We offer a range of tailored service and maintenance and our specialists are available 24/7, anywhere in the world.

Our solutions help our customers to improve their processes, for their continued success.
