GEA presents innovative solutions that combine environmental protection with economy - The new GEA marine Separator increases efficiency on board.

The new GEA separator for marine applications massively changes the working day on board. After a service interval of 16,000 operating hours, the compact plug-and-play exchange unit is replaced. No unplanned maintenance is required.

The maintenance effort on board is reduced by up to 90% with simultaneous lower maintenance costs and maximum machine availability. GEA customers receive an OEM-certified, interchangeable drive module delivered to a location of their choice worldwide - same day delivery is possible.

With an efficiency level of more than 96% and potential savings of up to 30,000 kWh per year, the integrated direct drive is the heart of GEA's new separator series. The direct drive with its synchronous motor requires no belt and no coupling.

For the first time, spindle and motor are available as a compact plug-and-play "exchange unit". This greatly simplifies installation and maintenance of the machine, the separator is accessible from all sides and the space requirement on board is reduced by 50%.

Based on the CWE 15375 standard, the new GEA marine Separator offers full transparency, the best certified flow rates (CFR) and it is precisely tailored to the requirements of the main engine on board of the customer.

Manual cleaning of the disc stacks of mineral oil separators used to be a laborious and time-consuming process. With EffiClean, GEA now supplies a solution with which disc stacks can be cleaned in just 20 minutes - instead of usually up to eight hours.

In accordance with the needs of big data, the demand for more transparent processing and real-time operating data is increasing also in the maritime industry. The equipment needs to be interfaced with the ship's management system and numerous processes need to be controlled, visualized and analyzed within the network.

In cooperation with Trojan Technologies GEA offers the BallastMaster marineX for ballast water treatment. The GEA BallastMaster marineX is designed for a throughput of 150 - 1500 m³/h and is available as explosion-proof version.
