Glatt Powder Synthesis

The innovative solution for your next generation of powder materials

Increasing global demands on the functionality and service life of products pose new challenges to materials and material development in all industries, including powder production. Our answer is Glatt powder synthesis.

From nano to micro: drying, coating and calcining in just one process step with synthesis reactors from Glatt. Produce and coat powder materials with new, previously unattained properties in the pulsating hot gas stream of the patented Glatt powder synthesis. Thanks to the particularly homogeneous thermal treatment at up to 1,300°C, ultra-fine powders produced in this way are free of hotspots, easily dispersible and free of undesirable hard aggregates. Benefit from very high heat and mass transfer rates in the reactor and from the ability to specifically determine the layer thickness, porosity and activity profiles of your powder particles. You have full flexibility to adjust the chemical composition of your powders, achieve extremely good homogeneity and a narrow particle size distribution. The continuous process is easily scalable to industrial applications. Secure our support to realize your product idea and access to innovative technology. Benefit from short development times for new materials using our facilities for collaboration. Laboratory trials and pilot tests in the Glatt Technology Center are your reliable express route to results for the fundamental feasibility of your product requirements and sample quantities for performance evaluation or marketing.

Pulsed Multiphase Flows—Numerical Investigation of Particle Dynamics in Pulsating Gas–Solid Flows at Elevated Temperatures

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
