New Separator Lines for Processing Algae: algaeprime and algaepro

 The most distinctive features of the algaeprime series are automatic discharge and cleaning; no manual intervention anymore so processes stay closed, clean and safe. On top, GEA  offers different bowl types to meet a researcher’s every need. The algaepro series on the other hand can be customized right down to the smallest detail. For example, the separators can be equipped with the directdrive system for minimum space requirements, low noise emissions, top energy efficiency and low-wear operation.

GEA Westfalia Separator has successfully launched a new separator generation for the concentration of algae: algaeprime and algaepro.

The prime series with its capacity range from 100 to 23,000 L/h is ideal for research and development, but also for start-up companies. It offers high flexibility for processing all kinds of algae with all possible recipes, features easy and simple operation, high capacities and separation efficiency along with maximum scale-up safety.

The algaepro series on the other hand is the best solution for processing algae on full industrial scale, offering cutting-edge separation technology for capacity ranges of 20,000 to 80,000 L/h. The separator can be customized right down to the smallest detail to optimally fit process and demands.

Highlights are the new two-in-one ejection system for a fast and easy change of algae types as well as the integrated directdrive which you can choose for maximum energy efficiency. Moreover, this most modern drive system from GEA Westfalia Separator needs 30 percent less space, has a lower noise level and fewer parts than a flat belt drive. Profitability and cost management were the clear focus when designing the new algaepro separators. Both lines of course come in food-grade design with stainless steel for all product-contacting parts and FDA approved gaskets, special bowl material for salt water algae is available, too.
