ceramitec 2022: Particle Design from Nano to Macro
Munich, Germany, 21.06. – 24.06.2022
Meet the Glatt experts at the booth C2.409
Powders and granules with special properties for bioceramics, industrial ceramics, LED applications and batteries for electromobility
From nanometers to millimeters, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik (booth C2.409) will be demonstrating its expertise in particle design for grain sizes from nano to macro at this year’s ceramitec. At the leading international trade fair for the ceramics industry, the fluid bed and spouted bed pioneer will present these technologies as well as its pulsating gas stream process for powder synthesis.
By combining drying, granulating, coating and calcining in a single step, the process expert and plant manufacturer facilitates the efficient handling of solid and liquid starting materials at process temperatures from 40 to 1300 °C. In addition, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik partners with its customers from product idea to production and also offers technology transfer, and services for process and plant engineering, contract manufacturing and factory planning for functional powders, granules and pellets.
With their wide range of process options, Glatt technologies provide almost unlimited possibilities for optimum particle design and the functionalization of bulk material particles. The key to the ideal product lies in the optimized selection and combination of the most appropriate process parameters.
Thanks to the particularly homogenous thermal treatment at up to 1300 °C, ultrafine powders produced using the pulsating gas stream of Glatt’s powder synthesis technology have no undesirable hotspots or hard aggregates and are easy to disperse. Further advantages include the very high heat and mass transfer rates in the reactor and the ability to specifically determine the layer thickness, porosity and activity profiles of powder particles.
Fluid bed and spouted bed processes transform powders and liquids into dust-free, free-flowing granules and pellets that can be precisely dosed and safely handled. Particle coatings and microencapsulation guarantee the protection of bulk solids and the environment, thus ensuring greater storage stability. They also improve sensory appeal and enable the retardation and controlled release of active ingredients.
