Synthesis of powders in an oscillating process gas – Reactor design and application for catalytic active materials (Poster)

The Glatt Powder Synthesis is not only suitable to produce powders but also for the coating of materials. Starting from suspensions, drying, coating and calcination can be done in one step by a core-shell process.
Besides the presentation of the technology, the fabrication of photocatalysts as well as oxide materials for the generation of hydrogen will be exemplified.

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.

Continuous monitoring and automatic control of pharmaceutical processes. Example: Fluid bed granulation (Poster)

Elaboration of the plant and control engineering fundamentals for the precise control of particle growth in granulation processes. From this, reliable statements on the industrial scalability and pharmaceutical suitability of self-regulating granulation processes can be derived. The results create the technological prerequisites for a completely new quality level in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products (granules and tablets).

Spray (micro) encapsulation of oxidation and light-sensitive volatile substances in matrix form (Poster)

The poster reports a case study involving the spray granulation of a solution using continuous fluidized bed and spouted processing.
Based on various experiments in laboratory and pilot scale a statistical process model was derived based on artificial neural networks. A parameter study and sensitivity analysis was performed to determine the main process conditions and formulation variables. The multi-dimensional model of the process supported the optimization of product properties (e.g. particle size, particle sphericity) and related process conditions (e.g. product temperature, spray rate).
