Discover interesting possibilities for the synthesis and functionalization of advanced powder particles. Glatt powder synthesis in pulsating hot gas flow as well as processes in the high temperature fluidized bed play an important role. Solutions for complex stoichiometry and crystal structure requirements, for example in mixed oxides, are considered as well as options for organic and inorganic core-shell coating and aspects of calcination. The combination of theoretical considerations and practical experience takes into account different levels of prior knowledge.
Glatt will be presenting cutting-edge safety concepts that go far beyond current legal requirements. As a plant manufacturer and operator, Glatt combines professional engineering with extensive technological know-how from its own practical experience. Visitors to the stand can discover which comprehensive concepts and innovations Glatt has developed and how they pay off in terms of product quality, fire/explosion protection, operational safety, heat recovery and environmental compatibility.
Dr Reinhard Böber is leaving the management of Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH on 1 September to begin his well-earned retirement. He co-founded the company 32 years ago with the “Continuous Fluidised Bed” research group of the Magdeburg Heavy Engineering Combine (SKET) in Weimar and was largely responsible for the company’s development. Dr Böber’s farewell ceremony was attended by shareholders, executives and partners of the Glatt Group, as well as numerous representatives from Thuringia’s business community, society and politics.
On 30 June 2023, a completely new type of production plant for special effect pigments was officially commissioned at the Glatt Technology Centre. The Darmstadt-based Merck Group placed the order for the development and construction of a plant based on chemical vapour deposition (CVD). The Dryflux technology is suitable for numerous powder applications.
The product requirements of paints and coatings are versatile, but the properties of commercially available fillers or additives are often not. Glatt experts will explain how this gap can be closed with optimised powders and particles. As a leading company for powder synthesis, fluid bed and spouted bed technology, Glatt will provide insights into successful customer projects for particle design, process planning and plant engineering at booth 3-732.
As a leader in fluid bed technology and powder synthesis with its own Technology Center in Weimar, Germany, Glatt will highlight integrated concepts in the areas of particle design, process know-how and plant engineering. Glatt experts will be happy to discuss a wide range of topics — from product idea to the industrial manufacture of products and ingredients — in the bulk solids processing industries. Meet our experts at booth H04-5.
”From Particle Design to the Production of Powders, Granules and Pellets” is Glatt’s motto for POWTECH 2022. Company experts will be available in Hall 3 Booth 3A-101 to discuss the complete workflow from product idea to commercial production. As a leading fluid bed technology company with its own Technology Center in Weimar, Germany, Glatt will be showcasing the interplay between particle design, process know-how and plant engineering.
In January 2022, plant manufacturer and process expert, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, expanded its powder synthesis capacity at the company’s technology center in Weimar. The newly installed system ensures a homogenous process temperature throughout the entire length of the ProAPP® 80 HT reactor or the targeted adjustment of temperature gradients. This allows different process steps to be combined.
At its Hermsdorf site, the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS creates high-performance oxide ceramics for medical technology and optical components. The world’s first Glatt synthesis reactor for temperatures up to 1300°C was recently put into operation there, with the powder synthesis process based, for the first time, on a flameless concept with pulsating gas flow.
On June 14, 2021, the VORSPRUNG business award was presented for the second time. This year, the business prize ‘VORSPRUNG’ went to the Weimar company Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH, along with 4 other prize winners from other federal states. The Thuringian Minister of Economics, Wolfgang Tiefensee, acted as laudator for the prize winner.
