Düsseldorf (Germany), August 1, 2017 – GEA will showcase its scope of expertise, wide range of technologies and solid and liquid processing solutions for several industries and applications at the upcoming POWTECH trade show in Nuremberg, Germany (26-28 September, 2017, Hall 3A, Stand 312). POWTECH is one of the world’s most important trade exhibitions for powder, granule and bulk solids technologies. From food to feed, pharmaceutical to chemistry, from ceramics, minerals and hard metals to battery material and base for high-quality plastics, POWTECH provides an ideal platform for GEA’s innovative and cross-application approach to standard and custom-designed plant and machinery and service.
GEA will highlight the new Pathfinder GMP, a centrifuge skid for test centers and pilot plants. This GMP-certified skid for pharma test centers and pilot plants has a sophisticated compact format for pharmaceutical applications. It requires little space in the technical center and, thanks to its ingenious design, reliably fulfils even the most demanding technical tasks. Combined with technologies such as the high-pressure PandaPLUS 2000 homogenizer, it belongs to GEA’s portfolio of biopharmaceutical manufacturing lines and equipment.
GEA furthermore offers a comprehensive range of technically advanced process components, including BUCK® containment valves, VESTA® tank bottom valves, and tank cleaning systems as well as the new pump range of Hilge CONTRA and HYGIA for food, beverage and pharma applications.
GEA’s liquid jet solids pumps and jet mixers for the admixture of powder into liquid are also exhibited. GEA will further highlight the SRS vibration sifter, designed for applications that require high standards of hygiene and sanitary processing.
And, completing the line up, the compact and versatile MOBILE MINOR™ MM-100 spray dryer, equipped with the new cyclone CEE (Cyclone Extra Efficiency) for highly efficient powder separation, will also be exhibited. GEA has developed the CEE based on extensive computational fluid dynamics modelling of a well-known yet complex unit operation. Improved cyclone performance and the resulting higher separation efficiency increases yield, reduces emission and has the potential to reduce the complexity of the spray drying plant by minimizing the number of powder separation unit operations.
