With an installed base of GEA SmartPacker vertical packaging machines that have ultrasonically sealed more than 100 million bags worldwide, GEA Food Solutions has demonstrated that its execution of the technology is consistently reliable on an industrial scale.
The main feature that differentiates GEA’s solution from other vertical packaging machines with ultrasonic sealing is a unique technology that keeps the sealing jaws, independent on machine output, parallel to incredibly tight tolerances as they close on the film.
Although ultrasonic bag sealing on vertical packaging machines has been available for several years, until recently the technique could not deliver consistent results with films as thin as 30 microns >>
These thinner films are in demand because not only do they cost less than thicker gauges, they also reduce the amount of landfill waste after the contents have been consumed. There is a strong lobby from governments, supermarkets and consumers to reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials.
ColdSteam is a highly controlled process using steam under vacuum to efficiently defrost meat without scalding or damaging it, nor cause denaturation of proteins. GEA Food Solutions pioneered this technique, and currently leads the market with the innovative ColdSteam. Read more>>
At normal atmospheric pressure (1.0 bar), water boils at 100°C (212°F). In a vacuum, it boils at a lower temperature. In a 95% vacuum (0.05 bar), the boiling point of water drops to 33°C (91.4°F).
The resulting steam also at this temperature condenses immediately on to the cold meat, and efficiently transfers its thermal energy, significantly speeding up the defrosting.
The steam at 33°C does not scald or damage the meat, nor cause denaturation of proteins.
The GEA PowerGrind 280 represents a new generation GEA grinders with improved capacity, hygiene and safety performance.
These aspects are combined with high flexibility, robustness, and modularity, making the GEA PowerGrind 280 a reference in its class.
Higher output, low margins, and constant demands for even more flexible production: our customers in the meat and poultry industries have to be lean, mean and competitive.
This means your equipment and processes must be in top condition too. Yet many companies are happy ‘competing’ at around 80% of their true potential.
One of the tasks of GEA Food Solutions is to help them reach 100% and one of the tools GEA Food Solutions has to do this is the GEA Automation platform.
