Preparation and Pressure Vessels

The processing of sterile and non-sterile liquids, such as blood plasma have specific purity requirements that can only be achieved with great technical skill and experience.

Preparation and pressure vessels from GEA Diessel set new performance standards and ensure that our customers 'central process components' have competitive advantages.

The surfaces of our preparation and pressure vessels are ground and polished inside and out, and as required, electro-polished. All welds are smoothed to the current GMP-/ FDA-standards and exclude even the smallest cleaning dead spaces. Computer-aided design provides the customers with the right product, which is essential for sensitive manufacturing processes.
