GEA was placed an order for a revamp of an old evaporator and for a new direct-steam sterilization unit of a German gelatin manufacturer.

After the commissioning phase of the evaporation plant, the customer will replace the existing ion-exchanger and install an ultrafiltration system with diafiltration unit for desalination of the gelatin solution. Moreover, process water streams occurring in several production steps in the factory, will be treated and recovered in a reverse osmosis system.

Another order was placed by a company of the gelatin industries in Turkey. A complete GEA gelatin concentration line is concerned, consisting of ultrafiltration/evaporation and sterilization. This plant is controlled via a PCS7-system.
