Particle Design + Plant Engineering at the PCH Meetings 2021

Check out the unique supply chain from the first product idea to an efficient production from one single source: Technology transfer, plant design and factory engineering for the development, enhancement and production of functional powders, granules and pellets. Meet the Glatt experts for particle design and plant engineering at the PCH Meetings from 24-25 November 2021 in Lyon, France.

Coated zirconia for medical technology by specialized powder synthesis

The composition and homogeneity of the raw materials used are becoming increasingly important in medical technology. With an advanced powder synthesis process, particularly high-quality nano- and microscale powders can be produced or refined – for example, for dental implants.
To make the properties of zirconium oxide powders, which are also used in other medical and technical products, even more specific, the particles can be coated, for example. Glatt powder synthesis, a further development of the spray calcination process, is suitable for this purpose. At its headquarters in Weimar, the plant manufacturer Glatt Ingenieurtechnik operates various synthesis reactors and develops processes for highly complex powder systems. The process enables the targeted adjustment of chemical as well as mineralogical compositions of material systems.

Particle Design & Engineering from Nano to Macro

Meet the Glatt experts at Chemspec DIGITAL 2021 on September 29 – 30, 2021 for Particle Design & Engineering from Nano to Macro:
Processing of liquids and powders at 40 – 1300 °C: drying, granulation, coating, calcination in ONE process step. Batch and continuous mode. Hotmelt Processing. Solvent Recovery.
High-performance powders, granules and pellets. Homogeneous. Dustfree. Unique. Adjustable properties. Functionalization.

New Battery Material by Powder Synthesis

Powder synthesis represents a novel process for the production, activation and coating of battery materials. By using a pulsating hot gas flow with adjustable frequencies and amplitudes, powders of the highest quality can be produced.
Whereas the battery capacity of computers and mobile devices has reached an acceptable level, the expectations of electromobility customers in terms of range and charging speed are not being met. The search for solutions to remedy these deficits is increasingly becoming a driver for innovative new battery materials. With Glatt powder synthesis, a novel type of cutting-edge technology is available that is already being used in the production, activation and coating of new types of battery materials.

Glatt synthesis reactor ProAPP® Lab as the world‘s first flameles high-temperature powder synthesis plant at Fraunhofer IKTS for high-purity oxidic nanopowders

At its Hermsdorf site, the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS creates high-performance oxide ceramics for medical technology and optical components. The world’s first Glatt synthesis reactor for temperatures up to 1300°C was recently put into operation there, with the powder synthesis process based, for the first time, on a flameless concept with pulsating gas flow.

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik celebrates continued business success with third expansion of its Technology Center

New services, capacities, employees: plant engineering expert Glatt Ingenieurtechnik marks its 30th anniversary with an investment in the future of its headquarters.

From vitamins in animal feed and enzymes in detergents to powder materials for high-performance batteries, Glatt, the Germany-based plant manufacturer and process expert, is working on all of these in close cooperation with renowned research companies. In spring 2021, Glatt will expand its technology center in Weimar for the third time in twelve years.

Meet the Glatt Powder Synthesis Experts on March 15, 2021 at the ProcessNet 2021 Online Conference

The pulsation makes the difference! Learn how to benefit from the Glatt Powder Synthesis for spray drying and spray calcination in a pulsating gas stream to enable the precise design of completely new powder types with customized properties. Dr.-Ing. Viktor Drescher, Manager Advanced Powder Processing, Process Technology Food, Feed & Fine Chemicals, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH will present the process in his lecture at 1:40 p.m. March 15, 2021.
