Dalkia/Veolia Water

Dalkia and Veolia Water, part of the global environmental services company, Veolia Environnement, will co-exhibit at the Future in Food exhibition (stand 8)

Water systems use large amounts of energy and energy systems use large amounts of water. The Food and Beverage sector is acutely aware of the interdependency of these vital resources. Veolia Environnement partners with a wide range of clients in Ireland and globally to apply our technological solutions to meet our clients’ specific environmental challenges. Key clients include Diageo, Kerry Foods, Tipperary Co-op, Irish Distillers and Robert Wiseman Dairies.

We design, build, operate & maintain utility schemes using CHP and/or biomass energy sources, as well as heating & cooling networks systems. Our Virtual Power Plant (VPP) service, also called Demand-Side Unit management, enables sites with their own electricity generation or load reduction capability to receive payment for offering electricity demand reduction capacity.

Veolia Water offers customised technological solutions to design build and operate industrial water treatment networks and plants. We manage an end to end industrial environmental process, minimising carbon budgets and recovering effluents and treatment channel products for use as new resources or to produce lower-cost energy.

GEA 400

GEA Ireland

GEA is one of the largest suppliers of process technology and components for the food and energy industries. As an international technology group, the Company focuses on sophisticated production processes.

Many of the process components such as valves, pumps, product recovery systems and CIP units meet EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group) and 3A standards.

GEA Tuchenhagen® – VARIFLOW centrifugal pumps are among the key components of a process plant and they are gaining importance when it is necessary to meet the ever-higher quality requirements placed on products and conveying processes. These pumps have specially developed impellers and excellent cleaning compatibility, this makes them gentle to the product, efficient and easy to maintain.

Low flow velocities and careful discharging of the media through the spiral housing allow the product to be handled very gently.

By combining the existing GEA Tuchenhagen®-VARIFLOW TP series with a screw rotor, a new generation of hygienic self-priming centrifugal pumps has been created.

The new GEA Tuchenhagen®-VARIFLOW TPS series conveys products containing a large amount of gas. It is characterized by a low sound power level, high efficiency and optimal cleaning properties. This TPS series also permits evacuation of pipes on the suction side – just one pump only for CIP return and product conveying. The new TPS series is used for CIP return applications, for emptying tanks as well as for conveying products containing gas.

The new T-smart butterfly valve series, made by GEA Tuchenhagen, is a cost-effective shut-off device in valve blocks and panels for product and CIP operation. The T-smart butterfly valve offers a wide range of advantages to the benefit of the user: hygienic design, ease of maintenance, reduced cleaning cycles, reduced installation and maintenance achieving overall an economical production in the process plant.

Decanters are horizontal, solids-oriented, solid-wall scroll centrifuges. They are primarily used for the clarification of suspensions and sludges with relatively high solids concentrations, but also for the separation of liquids with simultaneous removal of solids.

The main requirements in this respect include a high bowl speed, a powerful drive for the scroll and a scroll speed which automatically adapts to the solids loading in the feed. Due to its versatility and the technological know-how of GEA Westfalia Separator, the decanter can be used for a wide range of process tasks; from clarification through separation, classification, concentration and washing right up to extraction.
