Meet the Glatt experts at the ChemProTech India 2022

Free-flowing granules and pellets from liquids and powders using innovative fluid bed and spouted bed technology at Booth G12 in Hall 1. With state-of-the-art fluid bed and spouted bed technologies, Glatt offers intelligent particle design to dry, shape and functionalize powders and granules with the desired properties in just one process step, improving their application and handling.

Glatt expands engineering capacity in Cologne, Germany

On 1 March 2022, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH opened a new branch in Cologne. The new unit will showcase the company’s pharmaceutical, biotechnology and active ingredient plant expertise and represents Glatt’s first location in North Rhine-Westphalia. The decision to expand was based on a positive market outlook in the field of pharmaceutical engineering and excellent capacity utilization.

Glatt expands technology center with new laboratory plant for powder synthesis

In January 2022, plant manufacturer and process expert, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, expanded its powder synthesis capacity at the company’s technology center in Weimar. The newly installed system ensures a homogenous process temperature throughout the entire length of the ProAPP® 80 HT reactor or the targeted adjustment of temperature gradients. This allows different process steps to be combined.

Cost-efficient synthesis processes for the production of BSCF powder systems in pulsating gas flow (Poster)

SaMBa research project for a novel fabrication process for high permeability oxygen membranes and development of an innovative membrane connection plate for oxygen generators: “Mixed ionic electronic conductor” (MIEC) Membranes are specialized single phase materials which exhibit significant electron and ionic conductivity. Neutral molecules can be transported through a solid membrane and separated from other components. BSCF (barium-strontium-cobalt-iron oxide) enables oxygen exchange. Research focuses on the production of BSCF by Glatt powder synthesis and the subsequent production of the membranes for oxygen separation from air.

Precision landing with special plant engineering

Dr.-Ing. Viktor Drescher, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH: “Plant concepts must be oriented to the customer, not the other way around”. Glatt, the plant manufacturer and process expert, accompanies users along the entire value chain – from the initial idea through feasibility studies and process development right through to the to the construction of the production facility. Novel plant concepts are are increasingly in demand. (Article in German language)

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

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. Glatt powder synthesis, a further development of the spray calcination process, is suitable for this purpose. The process enables the targeted adjustment of chemical as well as mineralogical compositions of material systems. The plant manufacturer Glatt Ingenieurtechnik operates various synthesis reactors and develops processes for highly complex powder systems.

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.
