GEA Process Engineering offers a broad range of technology and tailor-made applications to meet the various property requirements of inorganic chemicals. From aluminium to zinc, hundreds of compounds are well-suited for drying on GEA Niro drying technology.
No installation too big or too small
Our supply covers a variety of plants from small installations for production of a specific product to multi-purpose plants - with capacities from a few hundred kilos to 100 tonnes per hour.
We offer our customers high performance process systems and in-depth application know-how, giving an overall distinct competitive advantage to produce at higher rates, at a tighter specification, reduced cost and improved efficiency.
GEA Process Engineering has the knowledge and competences to supply plants complying with the highest requirements to powder quality; particle size distribution, residual moisture content, bulk density, particle morphology, and other product-related requirements, as well as to plant efficiency and reliability.
Whether your feed is in liquid, suspended crystal or solid form, we help you find the right technical solution:
GEA Process Engineering is able to meet the strictest requirements to efficiency, safety and environmental compliance. Since many inorganic chemicals include hazardous ingredients, all GEA Niro drying plants are designed to meet the strictest standards when it comes to explosion and emission control systems. Our vast experience within these areas is unequalled and also an invaluable aid when it comes to complying with international safety directives like ATEX, other European safety directives and/or local regulations.

Examples of drying solutions for soda ash production
For soda ash production, the GEA Niro CONTACT FLUIDIZER™ has proven to be an excellent alternative to the traditional rotary dryer/calciner due to higher energy utilization, improved product quality, less maintenance and higher productivity.
The fluid bed plants have capacities ranging from 20 to 90 tonnes per hour, but the design is capable of handling even higher rates in a single unit. The design is unique when it comes to thermal efficiency and possible usage of low pressure steam.
