Products groups

Blowing and Filling

Aseptic Blow Moulders

Blow-filling is aseptic only when blowing is aseptic and this is reached only maintaining the environment within the stretch blow moulding wheel sterile and sterilizable.

Aseptic Fillers

GEA offers complete filling lines which means that we also take care of the complicated task of line integration and control. In order to provide an efficient production line, it is important to consider all parts of the system together. Our experience and our “intelligent automation” enable us to guarantee the total line performance.

ESL Blow Moulders

After many years of experience in the technique of aseptic blow fill (ABF), GEA has developed ESL Blow Fill technology for sensitive products that are to be distributed through the cold chain.
