Company Profile

GEA Air Treatment supplies central and decentral air-handling solutions. Air can be filtered, heated, cooled, humidified and dehumidified in a cost-effective and eco-friendly way. The products are suited for various sectors: They help hotels provide a comfortable atmosphere for their guests, create pleasant and productive working conditions in offices, ensure wellbeing in churches and museums and simultaneously protect the buildings’ structures and exhibits.

Precision air-handling units ensure a constant indoor climate in laboratories or datacenters, hygienic units in turn are geared to the needs of the health sector or the industry. Air filter systems and last but not least cleanroom systems produce clean production conditions und minimize health hazards.

Economic motors, systems for heat recovery or the integration of environmental heat and cold enhance among others the solutions’ energy efficiency; in-house control systems moreover offer further savings potential.

Research & Development

For GEA, today is tomorrow

Market leadership and strength are a constant challenge for GEA to work with future orientation. This includes the efficient use of non-renewable energy resources, as well as careful treatment of the environment.
As partners of planners and systems contractors, we offer optimized, customized climate-control solutions for each project. Flexibility and closeness to the market are strong points here at Air Treatment. As part of a globally active technology group – with decentral decision-making structure and responsibility – we can assure you intensive contact with our teams onsite.

High-tech, with tops in form
With top performance, you should expect top appearance. When equipment demonstrates functional and formal unity – and is coordinated aesthetically with interior design – then systems design becomes a positive element in interior furnishing. Our specialists have received numerous national and international design awards for such work.

The GEA Technology Centre
Air Treatment heavily invests in its own research and development projects, with emphasis on sophisticated control technology. Systems with in creasing intelligence characterize this work. Numerous new developments at GEA have consistently provided critical impetus to our business field.

Energy consumption

We at GEA have specialized in developing products with optimum energy efficiency. This topic is becoming increasingly more important, especially under the aspect that, in future, the now mandatory European Building Energy Certificate will readily provide valuable conclusions on the energy quality of a building structure.

We apply dynamic energy simulations to determine the energy influences that act on enclosed building space. In addition, we are also able to effectively simulate building automation and utilities systems, as well as technical plant systems, and to study energy conservation on a time-discrete basis. The following are taken into account:

  • The heat-storage effect of the body of the building
  • Climate data that depend on site conditions
  • Including analysis of extreme values
  • Interactions within the thermal building behaviour and
  • User behaviour.

Equipment performance

The Institute for Air Treatment Technology, located in Herne, Germany, offers measuring stations and test benches for optimization and study of system output.

Measuring paths for air flow and heat-output performance

  • Plotting of fan characteristics up to 30,000 m³/h
  • Combined air-flow and heat-output measurements
  • Heat-output measurements of heat exchangers up to 120 kW
  • Build of systems with air-delivery cross sections up to 1800 x 2000 mm
  • Automated determination of all relevant air- and heat-engineering variables (motor speed, electric power, pressure rise, volume flow, water mass flow, temperatures)

Environmental chamber

  • Equipment testing under extreme conditions
  • Setting of realistic ambient-air conditions
  • Determination of equipment application limits
  • Measurement of cooling capacity, and determination of dehumidification performance
  • Verification of equipment insulation to prevent condensation


We perform testing to determine whether the relationship between performance capability and noise emission is optimal. In our acoustic testing facilities, we offer standardized acoustic-power measurements in accordance with comparative testing techniques.

We employ advanced measurement systems in the form of real-time analysis devices that enable short measuring times. The systems being tested can be studied in accordance with their requirements, for example

  • Measurements on the intake side
  • Measurements on the delivery side
  • Overall acoustic-power measurements.

Thermal comfort

We spend most of the time in our lives in closed rooms. That’s why a healthy room environment is so important for our comfort. Various factors contribute here: Various standards and directives provide essential information on generally valid criteria for thermal comfort. Our laboratory for measuring air and heat flow in rooms is available for simulation of a great variety of room situations.

Measuring systems can acquire data on all room-environment variables that play an important role in determining thermal comfort. This makes it possible to optimize room design with respect to comfort.

Sensors supported in place can accurately determine the prevailing environmental conditions in a room.

Our computer-aided flow-analysis systems provide key support in the determination and verification of comfort characteristics. These facilities not only allow conduct of room-climate tests and comfort simulations, but also enable the optimization of air-flow characteristics.

Structural analysis

In the field of engineering design as well, we offer essential support for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. We apply advanced CAD technology in this area of work, closely linked to component and assembly optimization by FEM. In this way, we also effectively carry out temperature-field studies for cases involving the consequences of thermal loads and deformations in solids.


It’s our responsibility

Employees who are encouraged and are qualified to follow responsible business practice right from the start achieve sustainable air and climate-control solutions for Air Treatment and satisfy the value promise of Air Eco2nomy.

Embedded in the GEA Group, with its rich stock of resources, Air Treatment is a company that has often proven its innovative capability and assertiveness. Investors, planners, and users profit from the co-operation of sustainable and entrepreneurially attractive solutions. This enables employees to bear the responsibility for their work and to measure themselves against the satisfaction of their customers. They commit themselves personally to the optimum achievable in air treatment in buildings, and are systematically trained to always aspire to this goal. The main focus is not the individual "job position," but the development of the employee’s personality along with all his professional and individual capabilities.

A pronounced learning and innovation culture, short decision-making paths, and decentralized organization all open up opportunities and a scope of action for the employees of Air Treatment to take over entrepreneurial responsibility even in their young years. Apart from professional considerations, the courage to make decisions, the capability for teamwork and common responsibility for results – and, not least, the will to make ideas out of visions and develop new products and applications from ideas: all of these are promoted in the course of their development. Specialists, project managers, and executives cooperate directly and openly, at eye level – and with success.

Whoever is expected to act as a successful business person must also be able to act accordingly. Air Treatment offers first-rate conditions:
