Unifying separator and decanter control

10 September 2017

In order to reduce complexity and to focus on user-friendliness, the GEA IO control generation will now be available for every separator and decanter, unifying control. 

The development of GEA IO aims to keep control as simple and user-friendly as possible. Consistently reduced to the essentials, operators are quickly able to understand and handle the control units of the centrifuge. This increases flexibility in production, and the reliability of the production processes also improves. The system only displays what the user needs, so the error potential declines automatically.

GEA IO includes streamlined displays with self-explanatory symbols, and the colour code is based on international standards – either traffic signal colours for statuses or the standard which is used in plant design for identifying pipework. 

“With GEA IO customers are also able to see how efficient the centrifuge is running in relation to energy consumption, performance or separation efficiency. It also offers remote capability. GEA experts are therefore able to access the centrifuges so that they are ready to be deployed again as quickly as possible.
