GEA is the technological leader for dynamic high pressure homogenizers and plungers pump for all industries and applications. This is the result of specific know-how and a spirit of innovation that is constantly focused on innovation and process performances. Thanks to a strategy of development of both established and potential applications often based on cooperation with our customers’ Research and Development Centers, GEA can offer highly specific and customized process solutions to always meet, ensure and repeat over time product quality excellence.
The close collaboration with customers to implement innovative and tailor-made solutions permits GEA to maintain continuous product development and to guarantee efficient operations and excellent results on the final products.
The Process Technology Center, based in Parma (Italy) next to the production plant, is a unique resource to test the homogenization technology, refine receipts, develop high efficiency core components and evaluate the performance of installed machines. Highly qualified staff can support customers in the development of new products, to test maximum process efficiency conditions and product scalability to industrial production processes.
The benefit of high pressure homogenization is well known in dairy, food & beverage applications in order to subdivide particles or droplets present in fluids and reduce them to the smallest possible size, down to nanometer range. Thus, the process creates a stable emulsion, which improves the product shelf life, viscosity, colour, taste and consequently its performance.
Different homogenizing valve designs allow particles to be subdivided at the desired micronization size at the lowest possible pressure, with great advantages in terms of energy saving.
Wide range of homogenizers
GEA can offer a complete range of high pressure homogenizers, from laboratory up to mass industrial scale and more than 300 options to satisfy market’s needs. All GEA machines meet the most stringent hygienic requirements and quality control systems. All homogenizers are CIP and SIP’able and are available with cGMP documentation.
