Product Handling Systems

GEA's intermediate bulk containers and powder handling solutions are dedicated to the specific and demanding needs of the worldwide dairy, food and pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

Powder handling solutions can vary from a simple bag tipping system to a complex staging, storage, automatic batching and mixing system. These solutions are aligned with the latest material handling safety standards and hazardous area design requirements. GEA solutions also focus on efficiency and waste reduction to minimise the impact on the environmental. Efficient powder handling solutions are critically dependant on plant layout. Physical positions of infeed, outfeed and processing equipment will largely influence the quantity of equipment and power requirement.

To ensure success, It is important that the experienced powder handling team is involved during the initial planning phase to ensure a cost effective efficient design is developed.

An experienced team of designers can address your specific application requirements, provide guidance and sales support. Whether it’s for bag emptying stations, powder handling components and systems, dispensing hoppers or special tablet handling equipment, please involve us at an early stage in your project so we can help you to select the most appropriate and efficient design solutions.
