GFC 16 – Continuous fluidized bed coating on pilot scale

The new overall concept for fully continuous coating – now also on a pilot scale – includes measures for optimum product treatment, uniform liquid distribution and gentle raw material feed and product discharge. The control system and instrumentation allow meaningful process monitoring. One application example is the coating of fertilizers with biopolymers in order to control the release of the ingredients in a targeted manner.

Glatt at ACHEMA 2024. Hall 3.0 Booth H4

ACHEMA 2024, Hall 3.0, Stand H4: Glatt presents a pilot coating module. Now: Fully continuous coating in all scales for non-pharmaceutical applications. The GFC 16 process module, which the market leader for fluidised bed and spouted bed technology will be showcasing at ACHEMA in Frankfurt, expands the performance spectrum of pilot systems at the Glatt Technology Centre in Weimar. One application example is the coating of fertilisers with biopolymers to specifically control the release of ingredients.

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

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.

Fluid bed systems: continuous, batch or a hybrid?

The discussion pro and contra continuous versus batch production is conducted as if there were only these two alternatives. However, with the Glatt series, plant solutions have long been available that enable both types of process control. A look at the requirements of two customers shows which issues are really decisive.

For quick enjoyment – Fluid bed systems in batch or continuous operation

Product refinement in two acts: Whether it’s enzymes for animal feed, vitamins for dietary supplements or instant coffee for capsule systems, the search for a suitable process precedes product development. Dr. Michael Jacob, head of process engineering in the Process Technology Food, Feed & Fine Chemicals division at plant manufacturer Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, summarizes what is important when deciding between continuous and batch fluid bed production.

Large-scale plant for continuous additive coating based on fluidized bed technology

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH has completed a fluid bed plant in Scandinavia for the continuous coating of additives with a capacity of several tons per hour. We spoke to Christian Heiermann, Engineering Sales Manager in the Food, Feed & Fine Chemicals Division, about this large-scale plant and about Glatt’s role as an engineering partner in a wide range of industrial sectors.
