    GEA IO

    Düsseldorf (Germany), July 28th, 2016 – At the marine industry trade fair SMM 2016 (September 6th - 9th in Hamburg, Germany) GEA presents solutions for processing of fuel and lube oil. Under the umbrella of „seaprotectsolutions“ GEA focuses on environmentally-friendly techniques, as for example treatment of bilge and ballast water or oil and oil sludge treatment. Further exhibits are components for air conditioning and refrigeration technology. All solutions target on maximum availability and high efficiency, to ensure trouble-free operation and simple maintenance on sea. Interested visitors can get an impression of the wide-ranging portfolio for cruise ships, ferries, container ships, tankers, fishing vessels, tugboats and many other special ships for offshore purposes at the GEA booth (hall 3A, stand 214). The exhibits will include:

    Separators for lube oil, fuel, sludge and bilgewater treatment – always well handled by GEA IO control

    GEA's separators of the OSE series for fuel, lubricating oil and water treatment, cover the range with a throughput capacity up to 80 m³/h. Thanks to their many sizes, the separators can be chosen very precisely adjusted to the requirements, which has a positive effect on operating costs. In addition, all centrifuges are CFR-certified (Certified Flow Rate) for heavy oil treatment and approved by leading classification societies. In maritime applications, the centrifuges convince with excellent separation efficiency and their service and maintenance compatibility. The latter is essentially due to the fact that the advanced design is based on a small number of components and performs with less wearing parts. They are also easy to operate even remotely as an option: The GEA IO control makes it possible to call the current status either via tablet or smartphone and to receive commands from there as well. This is as helpful for operators as for the service technicians on board. The control is deliberately designed according to the motto of "keep it simple". Rather than showing everything the control and the centrifuge can do, it focuses on what the user needs for his specific tasks. The operating interface is therefore selfexplanatory and can be operated intuitively.

    Ballast water treatment with the GEA BallastMaster marineX 150

    GEA BallastMaster marineX

    In cooperation with Trojan Technologies, GEA offers the BallastMaster marineX for treatment of ballast water. The model which is presented at SMM, can process a throughput capacity of 150 m³/h and effectively disinfect organisms with an UV-radiation grade of 44%. The BallastMaster marineX needs no chemicals, since it combines an effective 32-μm filtration with subsequent UV radiation for disinfection in a single unit. This prevents the introduction of germs or organisms into foreign ecosystems during deballasting. The differential pressure-controlled back flushing filter and the wiper system in order to keep the quartz sleeves clean enable a steady disinfection and satisfy the IMO-requirements. The GEA BallastMaster marineX – thanks to filtration combined with UV-technology – supplies excellent process values, – particularly even river water with high sediment load. The unit also offers a compact design that is up to 50 % smaller than conventional systems. Its low energy consumption and the effective principle make it to the ideal option for any ship type.

    Screw compressors of the GEA Grasso LT series – efficient and stable in all conditions

    Screw compressor GEA Grasso LT

    The GEA Grasso LT series is an example for the many high-sea-capable screw compressors by GEA. It combines high performance with a long service life and covers maximum displacement volumes from about 800 to 11,500 m³/h with 16 sizes. Resource-saving operation is made possible by features like the special 5/6-rotor profile or the sophisticated axle bearing that contributes to low play and therefore minimizes loss. The compressors are continuously adjustable in the range from 10 to 100 % of the nominal power and can optionally also be equipped with a Vi slider with which the internal volume ratio can be modified. The low pulsation has a positive effect in full and partial load operation, which protects the compressor itself as well as the connected cooling system. The compressor is durable and service-friendly not only because of its excellent vibration characteristics in all operating conditions. But also on account of wear-free plain bearings with high load-carrying capacity and the extremely stable axial bearings that can be exchanged on site. Further equipment features include the power slider, ports for the economizer or pulsation control and many others.

    Permanently in operation: GEA piston compressors for marine use

    High efficiency does not need to come at the expense of durability, as GEA proves, among others, with the piston compressors of the semi-hermetic series GEA Bock HG and the open type series GEA Bock F16.

    The F-series includes open, single-stage compressors with 2, 4 or 6 cylinders that are designed for common synthetic refrigerants (e.g. R134a, R404A, R507, R407C, R22). The maximum displacement volumes are 12,6 to 214,1 m³/h (1.740 1/min). They are optionally driven directly via a coupling or with a V-belt. Due to the high-volume oil sump as well as the reliable oil pump independent of rotating direction, the use in a wide speed range is possible. A stable drive, the successful mass compensation and the low pulsation contributes to the robustness and calm operation. The F-series runs without any problems even at short-term inclinations of up to 30° in both axes, making it perfect for marine use.

    GEA Bock HG44e/770-4 S

    GEA Bock HG44e/770-4 S

    The semi-hermetic piston compressor HG44e represents a broadly set-up series of suction-gas-cooled compressors with maximum displacement volumes from about 6,5 to 337,5 m³/h (at 60 Hz). Therefore the series cover the whole refrigeration and air conditioning requirements on ships, from cabin cooling to provision cooling. The optimized semi-hermetic compressors benefit from a cutting-edge valve plate system, highly efficient electrical motors and an improved gas flow as compared to the predecessors.

    GEA MixFeeder with Wireless Integrated Control

    Düsseldorf (Germany), July 20, 2016 – GEA introduces the Wireless Integrated Control (WIC) system, an intelligent software for its proven MixFeeder. The new system ensures that every performance group receives the optimal mix ration of raw feed, concentrated feed and minerals in the right volumes at the most appropriate intervals. The WIC delivers the feed precisely and reliably around the clock. This benefits milk producers and herd managers as it ensures that their cows are always performing at their full potential, thereby improving milk volumes and quality and reducing workload and costs.

    The WIC combines feed bunkers and silos and controls each individual step of the process fully automatically: from the precise weighing and mixing of the feed components in accordance with set feeding plans and specifications, to time-controlled group feeding. Having multiple feed deliveries throughout the day has been shown to improve feed uptake and utilization, so farm staff are able to set the distribution frequency to suit their animals. The system determines both the position of the feeder wagon and the current status of the processes, and calculates the shortest path from the filling station to any other position in the barn.

    The WIC software enables staff to access the system from the PC, touch panel or their smartphone, wherever they happen to be, via the local network or the internet. This gives milk producers and herd managers greater freedom, whilst still enabling them to have full control over the entire feeding process. The system can also send alerts via SMS if required. These messages can then be acknowledged with a simple reply text. Staff can also manage individual functions and get basic information via the touchscreen on the feeder itself.

    The MixFeeder with WIC can manage up to 30 feed types (15 per animal group), up to 30 feeding groups and 30 rations, up to 64 barn areas and around 100 mixtures per day. Whether the farm has high-performance or dry cows, calves or bulls, the MixFeeder with WIC ensures that each group receives their mix ration, tailored to its performance level. And as the feed is delivered multiple times per day, the animals are kept active, which in turn enables them to make the most of the nutrition. The system provides a whole range of benefits, including improved animal health, lower treatment costs over the long term, increased milk yields and excellent milk quality.

    GEA MixFeeder with WIC will be available in: Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Austria, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Norway, Great Britain, Japan, Turkey, Hungary, Lithuania, USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay

    2016.07.06 lolli_coating_chilli_final

    Düsseldorf (Germany), July 6, 2016 – The GEA Aquarius Coating Line for producing fluid, powder and granulate coated lollipops will be introduced at the Confitexpo 2016 in Guadalajara, Mexico, taking place from 2 - 5 August. Interested parties can visit GEA at booth no 850/851 to get informed about the latest developments. The visitors can taste some of the coating ideas GEA has for this line such as: disco dip, coconut shaving and syrups. The line forms, coats and wraps lollipops, and is the only fully automated solution (patent pending) currently available in the world.

    Sweet, smooth, shiny, spicy or savoury

    Coatings can be used to add colour, texture, shine and flavour to lollipops and result in a unique product with excellent market potential. Next to applying fluid, powder or granulate which can be applied to a hard candy lollipop centre fillings such as bubble gum or chewy candy are also still possible. “We would like to work closely with our customers on these ideas for different coating applications. We would like to invite interested customers to our facility in Weert (the Netherlands), to run tests on our coating test installation, such as sweet coatings for example, caramel, syrup and caster sugar. The ideas extend to ground nuts, grated coconut, disco dip, sherbet and yoghurt. Sweet and sour combinations can be applied,” says Kees Le Loux, segment sales manager for the GEA Aquarius lollipop manufacturing equipment.

    A chili coated lollipop may seem strange to European tastes, but hot spicy confectionery is extremely popular in Mexico. Le Loux adds, “Development of this coating solution was initially triggered by a request of a European customer for a line to produce chocolate-coated lollipops. A little later, a meeting with a Mexican customer led to a discussion about coating lollipops with chili-powder, and the concept started to take shape.”

    Sharing know-how

    To master the challenges of powder coating, the development team turned to colleagues from GEA’s meat processing activity in Bakel (the Netherlands). The GEA OptiFlour and GEA OptiCoater are well established for controlled flour coating of meat and poultry products. With various modifications to how products enter, run through and exit the machine, the GEA OptiCoater became the GEA Aquarius PopCoater for confectionery applications. Its highly controlled way of applying powder not only ensures the lollipops have a clean appearance as the powder is kept away from the stick, but the amount of powder on the lollipop is also controlled, the applied quantity of powder consistence and powder waste is absolutely reduced to an absolute minimum. Since GEA also considers agreeable working conditions important, the dust emissions have been limited to almost zero.

    Customer cooperation

    The GEA fully automated coating line solution (patent pending) includes forming, transferring, cooling, wetting, coating, drying, wrapping and quality control. The cooling and drying technology is a further development of an existing solution. “The coating line concept arose from responding to customers’ requirements, and we have the facilities in our Technology Center in Weert available to test and refine new coating applications. In a mature confectionery market like lollipops, it is important to innovate and enable customers to create new exciting products. This line will make it possible to bring hard candy lollipops with coating on the market. That is a great way for our customers to differentiate their products,” Le Loux added.

    2016.06.27 GEA_NG-compressor


    Düsseldorf (Germany), June 27, 2016 – GEA designed, manufactured and delivered a gas jet compressor system for an offshore platform in the North Sea consisting of a jet pump (ejector) with a total length of about 4.5 m and silencers to reduce the sound pressure level. At a new drilled well natural gas is available with a pressure of up to 600 bar. The gas pressure decreases in the course of exploitation of the gas field. At a defined gas pressure, the gas delivery rate is so low that the mechanical compressor is no longer economical.

    Gas jet compressors are perfect to increase the natural gas pressure and to allow extending the use of the installed mechanical compressors. In this way, the gas field life is prolonged. The system compresses a low-pressure natural gas (8 barg) by using a high-pressure natural gas (90 barg) to an intermediate gas pressure (12 barg). GEA managed to increase its portfolio by designing the ejector-body for 137 barg – and on the motive side for 213 barg.

    The material of construction is corrosion resistant and corrosion tested Duplex-stainless steel, which is coated with sprayed Aluminum. Ejectors are reliable in operation at low operating costs. They are almost maintenance-free because they are of simple construction, having no moving parts. Almost any vacuum duty can be accommodated including large suction flows.

    GEA donates EUR 25,000 to protect Syrian child refugees

    Thanks to the UNHCR project, Syrian child refugees like eight-year-old Hiba have a chance to attend school. (© UNHCR/Viktor Pesenti)

    Düsseldorf (Germany), June 13, 2016 – GEA has donated EUR 25,000 to a project started by German aid organization UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe (UN Refugee Relief) to protect Syrian child refugees in Jordan. The UNHCR-backed project aims to supply Syrian refugee families with their basic needs and to allow child refugees to attend school.

    "The financial support for families not only allows necessary educational materials to be purchased, it is also a vital step towards effectively fighting child labor because it helps ensure that children no longer have to contribute to the family income. Additionally, education is an important precondition for the future success of this generation," says Jürg Oleas, Chairman of the Executive Board of GEA.

    Syrian child refugees, of whom more than 1.3 million now live in overcrowded housing facilities and camps in Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq, are physically and mentally impacted by the ongoing civil war in their homeland. The vast majority of them have no access to regular education. In Jordan, half of the school-age children of refugee families currently do not attend school at all. The Jordanian government allows all registered refugee children to attend public school. Still, enrolling and keeping Syrian children in Jordanian schools remains a challenge because many refugee parents are forced to choose between meeting their families' basic needs and sending their children to school. The circumstances of life in refuge and displacement often force children to contribute to their families' modest incomes - often under difficult and dangerous working conditions.

    UNHCR is working with its partners to secure healthcare for child refugees, to modernize school facilities, to strengthen the Jordanian education system and to allow as many child refugees as possible to attend school.

    UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe is the German donation partner for UNHCR, the refugee relief agency of the United Nations. Since 1980, it has promoted relief efforts for refugees at home and abroad. Today, the UNHCR is active in over 125 countries and is one of the world's largest relief agencies. For its efforts to support refugees, the UNHCR has twice been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Naperville, IL (USA), June 13, 2016 – The GEA AutoRotor™ PerFormer CX360 is taking rotary parlor innovation to the next level with its sleek new design, increased labor efficiency, and improved cow comfort while also including a five-year warranty on the platform and rollers.

    “For more than two decades, rotary parlors have revolutionized dairy production around the world and now the AutoRotor™ PerFormer CX360 advances them to a whole new level of engineering,” says Chris Genal, Milking & Cooling Sales Manager for GEA North America.

    With above and below the deck performance, AutoRotor™ PerFormer CX360 features a revolutionary roller system that keeps the platform on-center milking after milking, reducing friction, extending roller longevity, and reducing maintenance needs. The platform is based on a series of preassembled, pie-shaped segments that fit together to form the circular base of the rotary, allowing for an extremely precise yet quick installation.

    Sound engineering choices have also streamlined udder preparation with the PosiForm position arms that stay below the deck for an unobstructed view and access to teats during udder prep; and then are raised into presentation mode when ready to attach the milking units. After milking, the PosiForm arm removes the milking unit straight off the udder (not at an angle) and safely away from the cow’s legs. Then, the arm is lowered below the platform out of the way for less animal and employee interference to help increase labor efficiency and cow comfort.

    The heavy duty AutoRotor™ PerFormer CX360 rotary parlor comes in configurations from 40 to 120 stalls, to suit the needs of dairies of various sizes.

    “Reliability and labor efficiency were two key factors when designing this sleek new system,” explains Genal. “Many farmers utilizing this parlor technology have commented on the number of cows they are able to milk with oftentimes less labor– plus most importantly, cows are getting milked and back to the housing area much faster.”

    The GEA AutoRotor™ PerFormer CX360 is available with many options to customize the installation to specific dairy operations. To learn more, contact your local GEA sales representative or call 1-877-WS-Dairy (1-877-973-2479).

    2016.06.01 Nereda

    Düsseldorf (Germany), May 30, 2016 – Nowadays, the need to process industrial and municipal wastewater in a cost-efficient, environmentally-friendly and resource-efficient manner is one of the most significant global challenges to be faced in competition for market shares and location advantages. Decision-makers focus on process efficiency and product quality as well as the need to reduce energy consumption as a cost driver for their installations.

    GEA is a sought-after premium partner in the water/wastewater management growth market

    Industrial and municipal wastewater treatment as a factor of competitionHigh-quality partner portfolio: Nijhuis Industries, Royal HaskoningDHV, CDEnviro and Cambi On course for success with energy- and resource-efficient GEA decanter technologies

    At this year's IFAT 2016 in Munich, GEA is presenting itself not only as a leading systems provider of customized decanter solutions for water and wastewater treatment but also as a "preferred supplier" and premium partner for innovative globally operating environmental technology providers in the growth field of water management/water technology. These include in particular leading GreenTech companies such as the Dutch groups Nijhuis Industries and Royal HaskoningDHV, the Northern Irish company CDEnviro as well as Cambi from Norway. The range of applications of these high-quality GEA partners comprises process water and wastewater, water recycling and sewage sludge treatment as well as "waste-to-value" systems.

    “The crucial factors in the decision to choose GEA as a certified 'preferred supplier' or premium partner were our process know how, the strong product quality of our decanter technology as well as our world-wide sales and service network”, says Joost Vliegen, Director Product Management Environmental Technology at GEA. “This guarantees our partners and their customers a reliable investment and a rapid return on investment over the entire machine and installation life cycle.”

    GEA world-wide first “preferred supplier” for Nereda® process of Royal HaskoningDHV

    With its natural wastewater treatment process Nereda® which has revolutionized the traditional municipal and industrial wastewater treatment process world-wide, the global player Royal HaskoningDHV has taken the decision to use decanter technology from GEA. In November 2015, the contracting parties signed a cooperation agreement which guarantees GEA the status as a “preferred supplier” for the decanter-based secondary sludge dewatering in the Nereda® process. The solution uses waterMaster decanters from the GEA ecoforce series, which ensure a considerable reduction in operating costs with their high sludge dewatering efficiency and their energy-saving drive, control and regulating systems. The agreement with Royal HaskoningDHV also includes intensive cooperation in the field of research and development, in order to ensure that the Nereda® process – which is already successfully employed in all continents – will continue to be optimized in order to meet the requirements of the customer. The initial result of this intensive cooperation: a 10-15 percent improvement in the dewatering capability of excess sludge - and thus a significant saving in terms of costs for every wastewater treatment plant.

    Cooperation partnership between Cambi and GEA with tremendous prospects

    A highly efficient technology for cost-saving wastewater treatment world-wide continues to achieve success in the form of the thermal hydrolysis process (THP) of Cambi using GEA decanters. The key element of the THP system developed by the Norwegian company Cambi: The considerable improvement in anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge using optimized thermal hydrolysis – with an increased digestion speed and a reduction of the amount of time spent in the digester. The extremely precise machine performances of GEA decanters are absolutely essential in the treatment of sewage sludge: The advantages include an automatically controlled constant discharge of 16.5 percent dry matter (DM) in pre-dewatering as well as a maximum dry matter of 30 to 35 percent in the final dewatering of the digested sludge. The result: With the same digester capacity, THP provides the possibility of achieving an up to 40 percent increase in the volume of sewage sludge to be processed. This avoids expensive investment costs for additional digesters and the reduced volume of digested sludge enables savings to be achieved in terms of disposal costs. The annual savings per installation can in total run into seven figures.

    By the end of 2017, the THP system will be installed in a total of 54 wastewater treatment plants in approximately 20 countries, including more than 30 major installations with a population equivalent of more than 500,000 PE. GEA has the greatest amount of experience with the THP process for sewage sludge treatment in the entire sector, and in this particular field works continuously with Cambi in order to optimize processes and achieve further innovations. In consequence, the successful cooperation partnership between Cambi and GEA also offers further tremendous prospects in the huge market for wastewater treatment.

    Main supplier and “preferred supplier” of Nijhuis Industries

    The Dutch Nijhuis Industries specializes in the planning, production and turn-key delivery of industrial wastewater treatment plants, recycling and liquid-manure projects as well as “waste-to-value” projects. For this company with global operations, GEA has for the past approximately 20 years been one of the main suppliers of decanter equipment which for instance is used in biological wastewater treatment processes which result in savings in terms of disposal costs and which are also used in the processing of flotation sludges. For the past four years, GEA has also been the “preferred supplier” for the “GENIAAL system” of Nijhuis Industries. This highly-efficient process for treating liquid manure and fermentation residues is an intelligent combination of the application know-how of Nijhuis Industries and reliable GEA technologies which have demonstrated their value in many wastewater treatment applications. The GEA decanters ensure maximum separation of solid particles from the liquid manure in the initial pre-treatment stages, thus achieving the required separation into solid and liquid phases before subsequent flotation (DAF), ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis. The result: Using the liquid manure which would otherwise incur significant disposal costs, the user obtains reusable water (approx. 65 percent), a polymer-free solids cake which is rich in phosphates (approx. 15 percent) as well as high-quality liquid fertilizer (approx. 20 per cent) which is rich in potassium and nitrogen. An efficient win-win situation for the user and the environment which reduces costs and ensures the efficient use of resources.

    Certified partnership with CDEnviro

    The core competences of the international market leader CDEnviro which is based in Northern Ireland include wet processing installations for a wide range of industrial sectors and areas: e.g. road and sewer cleaning, construction and demolition companies and the treatment of agricultural harvest products such as potatoes. As a certified CDEnviro partner, GEA supplies the decanter technology for the clarification and dewatering of the sand and clay sludges in the wash water and rinsing water. Customized waterMasters of the ecoforce series ensure reliable processing of the fluctuating compositions of the material flows in the final stage of the processing system. Or stated simply: The GEA decanters reliably separate the dewatered solids and return 99 percent of the wash water and rinsing water as “clean” water to be reused in the installation. This is a key element in ensuring that CDEnviro has so far sold, installed and commissioned the highest number of wet processing installations in the world.

    On target for success with energy- and resource-efficient GEA decanter technology

    “In addition to our competence as an innovation and technology leader with a global sales and service network, there is a further good reason behind the extremely successful partnerships of GEA: Our partner companies appreciate the project management of GEA – as a guarantee for professionalism, customer loyalty and ability to meet deadlines and process optimization”, says Joost Vliegen. Excellent references for generating further partnerships and cooperations in the GreenTech sector at the IFAT 2016 in Munich and for ensuring that these continue to achieve success with the use of energy- and resource-efficient GEA technologies “made in Germany”.

    The GEA decanter solutions which are customized for each individual customer always comply with the maximum industry standards and guarantee compliance with all prevailing standards and laws, without any concessions being made with regard to the performance of the installations.
