Maintaining the highest quality from farm to formulation requires a blend of technology and know-how that only years of experience and innovation can provide.

GEA Process Engineering is the leading supplier of whey processing technology to dairy processors worldwide. Through the company’s full scope of dairy process technologies and components – together with deep insights into whey products and their processing – combined with solid expertise in engineering and project management of large-scale installations GEA has a unique position in the industry. “We are one of the few companies that are able to provide a truly holistic approach designing a whey processing plant,” says Steven Wright from GEA Process Engineering in the US and one of company’s experts in whey processing. “We help our customers to perfect processes and products. We work closely with them, through all phases of the project – from the very start to the plant is up and running – allowing our customers to bring their products to market quickly and profitably.”

Maintaining Manufacturing Efficiency

GEA is continuously investing in technological advancements, both evolutionary and revolutionary, for improved manufacturing efficiency. Whether it is in terms of production capacity, running time, product quality, resource consumption or sustainability, the parameters are constantly being moved through new and innovative solutions.

With the broad portfolio of heat and mass transfer technologies and a keen knowledge of state-of-the-art sanitary design and construction techniques, GEA offers unparalleled solutions to the most demanding process requirements. Whether the requirement is a single, stand-alone unit operation or an entire, integrated process line, GEA has the solution. Lowest total cost of ownership is our ultimate objective; product yield and quality, energy, chemical, and water consumption all key elements to this.

With over three decades of experience in cross-flow membrane filtration technology, GEA Filtration remains the market leader in sanitary process applications. Pioneering high-pressure reverse osmosis (HPRO) technology in the sanitary process industries has had significant impact in transport cost reduction in remote market regions and high fuel cost economies. Companies, some with operations in particularly arid regions and others with progressive sustainability initiatives, have benefited from GEA advanced water recovery, treatment, and re-use technology. Advanced process design applied in GEA Ultrafiltration plants provides clients with improved product yields and reduced energy, CIP chemical and water consumptions. Revolutionary GEA Microfiltration technology advances the economics of protein-protein and protein-lipid fractionation. All of this comes amid a watchful eye toward the highest standards in hygienic design resulting in superior product quality and safety.

IWC 2014

GEA Process Engineering is sponsoring the seventh International Whey Conference in Rotterdam from 7-9 September 2014 (IWC 2014).  This is the second time GEA sponsors the event that is one of the major venues for whey processors, application industries, and scientists and academia to meet.

GEA will provide the technology providers’ view on whey processing, and be available for discussions on how the company’s technologies are applied in production of advanced whey and lactose products. The company will contribute to the poster presentation at the conference with a theme on ‘Whey protein concentrates processing: perspectives on optimization and process and product interaction’ highlighting advances and best practices in the manufacture of whey protein concentrates and isolates.

Meet GEA at booth number 17 to talk to our engineers about strategies for improving production efficiencies, minimizing waste, increasing yields, decreasing consumption of materials and energy, and integrating sustainable design into your plant operations.
