“Where food moves forward”. This is the slogan of Fi Europe 2022 – the leading Europe’s event for food and beverages.
Are you looking for food and beverage ingredients, alternatives and innovative solutions to produce and improve them? Do you want to form new partnerships with real experts to stay ahead in placing new products in the market?
Do you want to make your manufacturing processes sustainable and energy efficient?
Then visit the Glatt experts at booth 4G127! Be curious and discover the possibilities that modern particle design with processes from the pioneer of fluid bed technology offers you.
In many industries, factors such as nutritional requirements, climate change, the debate on plastic waste and the increasing relevance of online media have prompted a shift away from traditional thinking. More and more manufacturers are responding to the need to replace certain ingredients and develop new formulations based on natural ingredients for increasingly health-oriented consumers.
Glatt’s fluidized bed and spouted bed technologies offer unique benefits in terms of particle design. Sensitive natural ingredients such as vitamins and minerals, as well as fragrances, aromas and other active ingredients, can be produced, protected and refined using these technologies. In a single process step, for example, powders and liquids are turned into dust-free, free-flowing granulates and pellets that are easy to dose. By using spray granulation, spray agglomeration, film coating, lipid coating and hotmelt coating or micro-encapsulation, it’s possible to functionalize particles and optimize the properties of sensitive raw materials for new formulations. And, owing to better, more specific and more reliable compacting and dosage processes, potential savings in packaging design can also be achieved. The custom dissolution properties of vitamin tablets, the optimized release behaviour of food supplement capsules and the homogenous distribution of active ingredients are all product advantages that consumers relate to and use to inform their purchasing decisions.
Sales Manager Lutz Heinzl comments: “As a sought-after technology partner for project-specific processes and products that we develop with our customers, we are very close to the market. This expertise is particularly valuable during the concept phase, which is why our customers benefit from the know-how we gain during the development processes in our fields of competence and in cooperation with our university network and research partners.” In addition, visitors can learn about how specific particle structures can be designed using technical system configurations and which drying principles and technologies are essential for optimum product performance.
At the Glatt Technology Center in Weimar, we work with you to determine the optimum process conditions for your product in feasibility trials for product development. Various laboratory facilities and comprehensive analytical equipment are available for this purpose. On our pilot plants, we optimize the process and scale it up reliably to a stable and economical production scale. The results from this form the basis for the design and construction as well as the erection of your fluid bed or spouted bed plant, tailored to your requirements. As an alternative to our own process technology, we offer you the outsourcing of your production by means of contract manufacturing at Glatt.
