Glatt Fluid Bed Experts @ Fi Europe 2021 in Frankfurt

Glatt Fluid Bed Experts @ Fi Europe 2021 in Frankfurt

At booth 31K62, you can find out how to enhance the properties of your products in a tailor-made way

Are you interested in efficient possibilities in product design with natural ingredients for sports nutrition, dietary supplements and beverage applications?
Then you’ve come to the right place with the Glatt experts for process development and plant engineering. Visit us at the Food Ingredients Europe in Frankfurt. We will be happy to explain how you can optimize the product properties of your ingredients.
Improve bioavailability, flowability, dust-free and solubility. With our fluid bed and spouted bed technology, you can create tabletable agglomerates, pellet formulations with functional coating, dry solvent-based products, protect volatile and sensitive substances via microencapsulation, spray on active ingredients with controlled release, and more.

Sensitive natural ingredients such as vitamins and minerals, as well as fragrances, flavors and other active ingredients, can be optimally produced, protected and refined with the help of these technologies. In a single process step, powders and liquids are transformed into dust-free, free-flowing and easy-to-dose granules and pellets. By means of spray granulation, spray agglomeration, spray coating or spray encapsulation (microencapsulation), the properties of sensitive raw materials can be optimized for new formulations and particles can be functionalized. Because they can then be compacted and dosed better, more specifically and more reliably, there is potential for savings in packaging design. Tailored dissolving properties of vitamin tablets, optimal release behavior of dietary supplement capsules and homogeneous distribution of active ingredients are product benefits that consumers take into account when making purchasing decisions and recommending products to others.
Speed is a success factor in the development and launch of new products. But sensitive ingredients and, above all, solvent-based processes present manufacturers with technological challenges. At our Technology Center, you will find support - from the initial idea to scale-up to industrial scale.

Company information

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH
Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH
Glatt is specialized in intelligent particle design for the generation and functionalization of powders and granulates with defined, adjustable properties. The focus is on particles and powders for pigments, catalytic, ceramic or battery materials as well as for granules and pellets as additives for e.g. industrial salts, detergents and cleaning agents, fertilizers, pesticides, food, feed, dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals. Encapsulation of flavors, enzymes, vitamins, microorganisms, probiotics or fatty acids (PUFA) is just as possible as encapsulation of essential oils and other active, sensitive substances to be protected. With Glatt APPtec®, a unique technology for spray calcination, it is possible to generate, coat and then calcine particles in a pulsing hot gas stream in a single process step. As a pioneer in fluid bed and spouted bed technologies, Glatt masters these important processes for the formulation and optimization of particle properties through defined spray agglomeration, spray granulation, spray coating or (micro)encapsulation as well as through combinations of these processes. Also in the high temperature range. Glatt supports the product idea from the early phase of product formulation through process development to scale-up to production scale. Under the leadership of the Glatt Process & Plant Engineering teams, customized production plants for nutrition, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biotech applications are successfully planned and commissioned. Worldwide. Whether based on powder synthesis, fluid bed or spouted bed technology, Glatt also offers certified contract manufacturing for customers without their own production capacities.

Spray (micro) encapsulation of sensitive substances in matrix form
An overview of essential oil and vitamin case studies Phytochemicals are increasingly found in many food, chemical and agricultural items. Product and process optimization is becoming ever-more important in all of these industries, with a focus on quality, manufacturing efficiency, stability and formulation costs. Essential oils are volatile substances with a relatively high vapor pressure; they are susceptible to oxidation and light and may change or may even lose their properties when directly exposed to stressors. Like other sensitive, volatile, odor- or taste-intensive liquid active ingredients, they must therefore be protected from the environment or vice versa. For this protection and to simplify handling — as well as for better dosage and targeted release — these substances are therefore progressively offered and used in encapsulated and/or free-flowing forms. Various processes can be used to deliver products with a compact structure. During process development, the most suitable procedures and equipment

Optimising functional ingredients for enhanced nutrition
Fluidised bed and spouted bed processes offer manufacturers almost unlimited possibilities in terms of optimised particle design and the functionalisation of ingredients, the properties of which can be fine-tuned Fluidised bed and spouted bed processes by Glatt offer manufacturers almost unlimited possibilities in terms of optimised particle design and the functionalisation of ingredients, the properties of which can be fine-tuned using spray granulation, agglomeration, microencapsulation and coating. The consumer demand for fortified products is constantly growing and has been well received by end users. The form in which health-promoting probiotics, dietary fibres or antioxidants are consumed depends on both the preferences and everyday habits of the individual: some prefer sports drinks, protein bars or enriched iced tea, whereas others favour more direct dosage forms, such as effervescent tablets, sachets or capsules. However, although the manufacturing processes associated with these products present numerous challenges, a universal requirement is that functional ingredients must be stable during storage, precisely dosed, dissolve quickly or have a depot effect.
