At POWTECH India 2018, in Mumbai, Germany based Glatt Ingenieurtechnik and its Indian subsidiary, Glatt India, will show case cutting-edge fluidized bed and spouted bed technologies that have been specifically designed to spray-granulate, dry or encapsulate fluids, and spray-agglomerate and functionalize powders for a broad range of innovative applications.
The company’s new, compact continuous agglomeration technology will significantly shorten construction, development and production cycles.
When it comes to enhancing ingredients and functionalizing bulk goods with defined properties, fluid bed pioneer Glatt is well known for its established and state-of-the-art technologies. Following its European inauguration in June this year, the engineering experts are now also offering their newly developed compact system for continuous agglomeration processes in India.
Glatt GF ModFlex enables the production of uniformly porous, virtually dust-free, soluble and easily dosed granules. The process also ensures the homogenous incorporation of ingredients into agglomerates. “We designed the new compact system for production volumes of 100–3000 kg/h and to be used in confined spaces or rooms with low ceilings,” says German Sales Manager, Lutz Heinzl.
“The predefined modules are pre-installed and pre-assembled to save customers an enormous amount of time and money,” he added.Furthermore, a zone-based operating and room concept based on specific requirements is included. The continuous operation mode is suitable for the safe manufacture of high quality ingredients for food, beverage and nutraceutical applications, as well as detergents, surfactants, agro-chemicals, enzymes, fertilizers and numerous other products that dissolve easily, are dust-free and can be readily dosed or pressed into tablets.
“In addition, we will present our expertise as Engineering Design Consultants,” explains Anuvrat Singal, Executive Director at Glatt India Engineering Pvt. “Using real planning and construction projects as examples, we will show how we can support companies with bespoke design solutions, for example.” Interested visitors should ask about Glatt’s modular plant concepts for biotechnological and pharmaceutical active ingredients, which benefit from flexible system design and‘right first time’ principles, and can be implemented according to local requirements.
Glatt Ingenieurtechnik engineers, designs and implements international projects, from the expansion or modernization of existing production sites to the construction of completely new plants. Throughout its activities, the company combines professional engineering and in-depth technology expertise with self-developed and patented technologies such as powder synthesis with APPtec as well as fluidized bed and spouted bed processes for granulation and coating. Projects focus on the manufacturing of solid, semi-solid, liquid and sterile drug dosage forms as well as on the development, optimization and processing of bulk materials such as powder, granules and pellets for food, feed and fine chemicals as well as processes for the manufacturing of biotechnological and chemical substances in sterile and non-sterile dosage forms. Glatt Ingenieurtechnik is headquartered in Weimar, Germany. Further affiliated enterprises are located in Wiesbaden, Dresden, Switzerland, Russia, India and the USA.Integrated within the global network of the Glatt group, the company benefits from the know-how of some 2000 specialists.
