GEA has showed a new modular orbital cleaner at Brau Beviale 2019 in Nuremberg. Compared to conventional orbital cleaners, the OC200 offers distinctive advantages in terms of cleaning performance and efficiency, build quality and lifetime. The modular concept allows the optimisation of the cleaning process, resulting in significant cost savings. The orbital cleaner’s normal operating pressures are 4 to 10 bar and can easily deliver high impact liquids for tanks with a diameter of up to 35 metres. The OC200 is particularly suitable for large process tanks and storage vessels for industries including food, beverage, fish farming, healthcare, chemical, marine, bioethanol and wine.

Ground breaking design is a recipe for success

Effective, efficient and repeatable cleaning processes are essential in today’s modern hygienic manufacturing industries. The team at GEA has now developed a ground breaking modular cleaning solution for large vessels and particularly demanding cleaning applications. The new GEA Orbital Cleaner OC200 can be individually configured and easily adapted to the cleaning tasks at hand, ensuring optimization of the cleaning process whilst protecting valuable resources. The modular system allows interchangeability of key components – rotors, nozzle carriers and nozzles – in various standard options whilst the main cleaner assembly simply remains in place. This modularity offers flexible adjustments of impact values, cleaning diameter, dwell time and insertion size, as well as reduced consumption of cleaning media, according to the application requirements and customers’ priorities.

Powerful and flexible cleaner type

The new GEA Orbital Cleaner OC200 is the largest and most powerful cleaner in the GEA range. With nozzle sizes up to 15mm, it combines extended cleaning distances through the use of the latest nozzle and flow guide combinations, ensuring high impact performance standards. If the process parameters change, the cleaner can simply be adapted to the new requirements through the interchangeability of key components. Optimizing the cleaning performance helps to prevent product contamination and increase product safety, thereby protecting the product and brand.

Significant cost savings due to optimized cleaning

The GEA Orbital Cleaner OC200 saves time and valuable resources (chemicals, water, labor costs) thanks to the unit’s ability to be totally adjustable to the cleaning process. Once the cleaner has been installed, the process engineer is able to fine tune the “clean in place” process to obtain maximum efficiency, keeping the “total cost of ownership” and cost per clean optimized.

At the forefront when it comes to service and build quality

The superior design and build quality ensures repeatable performance, combined with extended service intervals, ensuring longer plant production. When service is required, the unit’s relatively small number of internal components, together with the availability of standard service kits through the extensive GEA network, allow a swift cost effective return to full operation.

Certification for Eppendorf ULT freezers

As further step into the green future, My Green Lab, a global non-profit organization promoting sustainability in the Life Science Industry through Green Lab Certification and validation of sustainable and energy efficient equipment has certified several Eppendorf ULT freezers (-80°C) to ACT, the Environmental Impact Factor label.

The Eppendorf ULT freezers are the first freezers worldwide being validated by My Green Lab:

The CryoCube® F570h, CryoCube FC660h, CryoCube F740hi, and CryoCube F740hiw are now validated and certified based on the ACT label in the US, UK and EU market. The holistic scoring evaluates a number of environmental factors across the lifecycle of an instrument. Power consumption is based on external testing at ENERGY STAR® with US-voltages. These ULT freezers are also certified by the ENERGY STAR regarding their sustainability footprint.

Flottweg Industrial Centrifuges for Wheat Starch Extraction

Tricanters, Decanters and Sedicanters optimize Viresol’s process in wheat processing.

One of Viresol’s main concerns was to reduce the company’s ecological footprint. Above all, it was about using less energy and water. Flottweg supplies the right overall package for this: two Tricanters, four decanters, two Sedicanters and the right equipment. These include dough mixers, curved sieves, pipes and the static design of the hall. This enables various products such as starch, gluten, maltodextrin, feed and ethanol to be produced in an energy-efficient manner. Flottweg industrial centrifuges also reduced water consumption.
