Matted from hot gas stream – matting agent with Glatt powder synthesis

Spray calcination // Their share in the paint system is only a few percent, but their effect triggers buying impulses and makes the cash registers of vehicle manufacturers and furniture producers ring: Matting agents. Thanks to a novel process of spray calcination in a pulsating stream of hot gas, new ideas can be turned into additives ready for testing within just a few weeks. (Article in German language)

Innovative particle design for high performance applications

With APPtec® for thermal powder synthesis and high-temperature fluid bed, plant manufacturer Glatt Ingenieurtechnik offers effective manufacturing processes for unique product properties. For particle design and the development of customized processes, Glatt has apparatus and equipment on a laboratory, pilot and production scale. (Article in German language)

Greener granulating and adding value – Effective fluid bed plant design

Sustainable granulation and refining – Effective fluid bed plant design
German energy prices are among the highest in Europe. More efficient energy use pays off not only in terms of operational cost management, but also in terms of competitiveness and image. Whether in the form of spectacular architecture, as in the case of state-of-the-art, energetically self-sufficient company headquarters, or in silver-grey components for fluidized bed plants – there is always a holistic approach behind successful concepts.

New type of powder synthesis

Continuous process for manufacturing powders with customis-able properties – Whatever the field – medical engineering, battery technology or special pigments – companies looking to develop new applications for high-performance materials are dependent on new and innovative production technologies. A milestone in the produc-tion of customised powders has now been reached in Weimar, Germany.

Powder production accelerates pulse beat – spray pyrolysis reactor for pigments and catalysts

Powder production accelerates pulse beat – spray pyrolysis reactor for pigments and catalysts.
Tailor-made – this stands for unique, high-quality and suitable. The Apptec process developed by Glatt for powder synthesis, on the other hand, leaves little room for chance. With a pulsating hot gas stream, this further development of spray pyrolysis enables unerring particle design for application fields such as catalyst and pigment development.
