To commercialize next-generation cathode materials a lot of different synthesis methods need to be researched and evaluated regarding the attainable electrochemical properties of the materials on one hand, and the scalability of the process on the other. For the high voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 cathode material especially the degradation of the material during cycling needs to be investigated for different scales and techniques. LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) was synthesized using two different methods in different scales: lab-scaled spray drying and pilot-scaled gas pulse drying.

Continuous process for manufacturing powders with customis-able properties – Whatever the field – medical engineering, battery technology or special pigments – companies looking to develop new applications for high-performance materials are dependent on new and innovative production technologies. A milestone in the produc-tion of customised powders has now been reached in Weimar, Germany.
A new thermal process for powder production – Advanced Pulse Powder Technology – is designed to enable targeted particle design. Manufacturers of advanced ceramics can thus achieve unique and customized product properties. (Article in German language)
Glatt Ingenieurtechnik developed a new powder technology that allows powder composition and particle design to be adjusted to meet a customer’s specific application needs. By synthesising the powder in a pulsed hot gas stream, product structures can now be generated that were not accessible with conventional techniques.
Powder production accelerates pulse beat – spray pyrolysis reactor for pigments and catalysts.
Tailor-made – this stands for unique, high-quality and suitable. The Apptec process developed by Glatt for powder synthesis, on the other hand, leaves little room for chance. With a pulsating hot gas stream, this further development of spray pyrolysis enables unerring particle design for application fields such as catalyst and pigment development.
