High-performance powder materials and optimized properties for functional ingredients


Weimar (Germany), August 2016 – At the 6th edition of Powder & Bulk Solids 2016 in Mumbai, India, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, Germany, and Glatt India Engineering Pvt. Ltd. will present state-of-the-art fluidized bed and spouted bed technologies to create innovative powder materials or to agglomerate, granulate, coat and dry various ingredients for food, feed and fine chemicals applications. Based upon its comprehensive expertise, Glatt is able to provide integrated solutions for demanding and complex applications that require precise technical targets, such as defined shape, solubility, homogeneity and particle sizes.

For nutritional supplement manufacturers, working with ingredients or products that are supposed to feature particular properties can be demanding – whether it’s a technological challenge during production, a specific protective role or a sensory or nutritional function.

Glatt will showcase processes in which liquids can be spray granulated, powders can be agglomerated and sensitive substances can be encapsulated. Glatt’s fluidized bed technologies enable manufacturers to optimize product properties. Drink powders comprising semi-hydrophobic components or agglomerated baby foods can be produced that do not separate and offer both excellent solubility and homogenous particle distribution properties. Nutritional supplements can also be covered with functional film coatings that provide better active ingredient release profiles. Additionally, with the help of spray granulation, it is possible to dry liquid food additives and precisely adjust their particle size. At the exhibition in Mumbai, Glatt will demonstrate this with the help of Augmented Reality systems, including a virtual tour and specific animations. Various samples and products will also be on display.

The company also provides extensive consulting and offers laboratory units and pilot plants for early stage trials and testing. Lab units are available both at the company’s technology center in Weimar, Germany, as well as for use in the client’s own laboratories. Besides planning, construction and the implementation of tailor-made production plants, Glatt offers comprehensive engineering services as well as entire turn-key solutions. Numerous projects around the world show Glatt´s competence in hygienic design requirements and total containment solutions. Its subsidiary in New Delhi was inaugurated in 2008 and provides services to the pharmaceutical, food, feed and fine chemical industries. Further affiliated branch offices are located in Pune and Mumbai. In recent years, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik and Glatt India jointly executed several projects in the Indian subcontinent and also in Uzbekistan, Russia, Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia.
