Glatt powder synthesis offers a versatile tool for the development and industrial production of innovative battery materials. The highly flexible technology opens up the possibility of producing and refining anode and cathode materials as well as solid electrolytes in just one step. The key to the effectiveness of this process is the special conditions in the pulsating hot gas flow.
The Glatt Group’s customers benefit from bundled expertise in particle design – from the initial feasibility trial, through scale-up, to validation of the production process. Glatt offers suitable solutions for every variant and, if required, also implements customer-specific processes. In this way, new products move more quickly from the development phase to market maturity. (German article)
By using Glatt’s innovative powder synthesis technology and the associated spray drying and calcination processes, new opportunities in raw material production have been explored. In this article, the inherent potential of barium strontium cobalt iron oxide (BSCF), doped and coated zirconium dioxide is described.
Being prepared to make an investment decision. Stay ahead in the race for successful new product launches, the concept phase is crucial. Plant manufacturer and process expert Glatt uses pre-engineering to put investment decisions on a firm basis and enables its customers to bring forward sub-projects.
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)
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. (German article)
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.
Outside-in process from the plant manufacturer: From the idea to market maturity – the future is made by the team.
For decades, fluid bed equipment has been considered the top class for the production of dust-free, soluble or functional granulates and pellets. Why Glatt Ingenieurtechnik approaches product ideas with an open mind to technology and how this advances the customer’s innovation process. Whoever comes to Glatt is looking for exactly that. Synergy effects also result from cooperation with university partners and our involvement in competence networks and research projects. Our employees make a very significant contribution to the success of complex innovation projects; highly motivated colleagues who contribute their expertise and ability to think outside the box in collaboration with our customers.

Although the benefits of pulsating multiphase flows and the concomitant opportunity to intensify heat and mass transfer processes for, e.g., drying, extraction or chemical reactions have been known for some time, the industrial implementation is still limited. This is particularly due to the lack of understanding of basic influencing factors, such as amplitude and frequency of the pulsating flow and the resulting particle dynamics. The pulsation generates oscillation of velocity, pressure, and temperature, intensifying the heat and mass transfer by a factor of up to five compared to stationary gas flow
