Ceramic Raw Materials from the Pulsating Hot Gas Stream

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.

Optimization of functional ingredients for improved nutrition by fluid bed and spouted bed technologies

Fluidised bed and spouted bed processes by Glatt offer manufacturers almost unlimited possibilities in terms of optimised particle design and the functionalisation of ingredients, the properties of which can be fine-tuned using spray granulation, agglomeration, microencapsulation and film, lipid and hotmelt coating.

Powder expertise for demanding tasks – Targeted plant modifications for fluid bed processes

The fluid bed is a technology that, with the right modifications, can be used for a variety of different processes. With the right expertise, individual process steps such as drying, granulation and agglomeration can be combined. (German article by Monika Goslinska, Process Development Manager, Inprotec)

Forward-looking plant planning – How pre-engineering can bring ideas to market faster

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.

Contract manufacturing by fluid bed and spouted bed technology: Which is better, continuous or batch process?

When running processes such as fluid bed and spouted bed drying, granulation, encapsulation and coating, which production management is most advantageous for contract manufacturers: continuous or batch mode? Gudrun Ding, Head of Business Development, Process Technology, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik provides an insight into their everyday practices and points out which mode of operation offers most benefits. Glatt + Erbo Spraytec provide an insight into practice

Spray agglomerating plant-based milk alternatives for optimised product properties

Powdery substances often cause problems during dosing, filling and transport because of their high dust content and poor flowability. Low solubilities and dispersing properties also impair the application of the end product. With the help of fluidised bed spray agglomeration, the size distribution and structure of difficult-to-process particles can be specifically adjusted and improved.

Growing the German phosphate industry

Part 1 of this article will highlight a scientific study on the long-term bioavailability of the nutrients in different phosphorus fertilizers. Part 2 will provide a report on the first German production plant and present a research project in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main area. Jan Kirchhof, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH, Germany, reports on a laboratory experiment with phosphorus fertilizers and two current projects.

Outsourcing of the production – Trust in competent partners

How the Glatt Group implements contract manufacturing with expertise and innovative solutions. There are many reasons for outsourcing production – minimizing one’s own risks or a lack of expertise in alternative technologies are just two of them. But what to look for when looking for a contract manufacturing partner?

A spirit of optimism between batch and continuous production

The concept of continuous production is captivating. No longer batch by batch – instead, for example, a liquid product can simply be tapped at any time. It is therefore surprising that “continuous manufacturing” did not already triumphantly conquer chemical and pharmaceutical production five or ten years ago. In the meantime, however, there are a whole series of forward-looking examples.

Animal feed production: food trends as a reflection

Ingredients specialists are using their expertise to drive these industries forward. Vitamins or probiotics, enzymes, yeasts, essential oils, proteins or microorganisms need to be optimized and adapted for industrial processes, storage and feeding conditions, and digestion processes. Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, a leading global plant manufacturer and process expert, offers feed producers process development, technology and plant expertise from a single source. (German article)
