GEA showcased equipment and services from gas compression solutions to centrifugal separation technology right through to refrigeration equipment at the SPE Offshore event in the UK last month.
The company has an extensive range of centrifuges for a range of specialist applications.
Powerful, high-speed centrifuges, tailor-made process cooling, tank/storage cooling, gas compression, small scale LNG, ATEX and API compressors and highly efficient vacuum technology were on show.
GEA refrigeration and compression solutions deliver precision and flexibility across a range of technical specifications, including compressor technology, refrigerants, refrigeration temperatures, and power capacity via three different technologies: oil injected screw compressor packages, reciprocating compressor packages (horizontally opposed), centrifugal compressor packages (integrally geared).
GEA starts from bare compressors to complete skid mounted packages, process design, process simulation, detailed engineering, documentation and drawings along with process guarantee and ends with commissioning & start-up activities.
With several options of the new service concept “GEA Service – For your continued success” GEA supports customers throughout the entire lifecycle of their installed systems and components: From project engineering, installation, and commissioning to maintaining and improving the performance of the customer’s plant and equipment.
GEA’s UK head of flow components, compression & homogenization sales, Paul Leeman, said the company's OneGEA philosophy and structure is now in place.
“We want to show our existing and new customers everything that GEA can offer under one roof,” he said.
This includes the Grasso LT series which comes in sixteen sizes and covers a swept volume from 805 to 11,467 m3/h (at 2,940 rpm).
The compressor has an extremely long life span and low noise and vibration levels due to the combined sleeve and roller bearing of the rotors.
All components are designed for long operating life, high availability and easy maintenance. GEA screw compressors can be provided according to the API 619 standard and ISO 10440.
Moreover, the HG model series consists of state-of-the-art classical suction gas-cooled compressor technology.
Assurance of effective lubrication by an oil pump, application of exchangeable electrical motors, as well as manufacture of very solid and rugged compressors made this series a standout at the show.
