CUSTOMER STORY: HOW OPTIMAL PUMP SELECTION RESULTED IN HUGE PROCESS IMPROVEMENTS
New partnership GEA & Bornemann ITT
Pump experts GEA and Bornemann ITT have entered into a new partnership, from which the Hilge NOVATWIN emerges. The screw spindle pump is designed for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
Although GEA has so far focused on hygienic centrifugal pumps, the partnership now introduces the GEA Hilge NOVATWIN. The GEA Hilge NOVATWIN is a flexible screw spindle pump with a twin screw based on the proven Bornemann design that meets the highest hygiene requirements.
The design guarantees smooth product handling and Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) with just one pump. The new GEA Hilge NOVATWIN will be available in 6 sizes and will be part of the GEA VARIPUMP line. This line consists of pumps with a high degree of flexibility for optimal adaptation to individual customer requirements.
