How the two-stage, residue-free process “PHOS4green” turns sewage sludge ash into ready-to-use fertilizer containing phosphorus. (article in German language)
Innovative Process Technologies for Customized Functional Ingredients and Beverage Powder Mixes: At the 27th International Exhibition for Food, Beverages, Food Raw Materials in Moscow, Glatt will present innovative fluidized bed and spouted bed technologies to dry, agglomerate, granulate and particle coat various ingredients for sophisticated applications. These ingredients may require specific particle sizes or shapes, optimum solubility, compressibility or the functional protection provided by active ingredients or improved stability via protective coatings.
Future materials such as high-energy and safe battery components, more economical membranes, orthopedic ceramics, functional additives or high-performance pigments must provide more than the current properties of existing material components. A common issue within each of these applications is the high levels of powder performance that are required. Therefore, completely new products or novel innovations require powder materials that must first be developed and then manufactured in the necessary quantities.
With APPtec®, plant manufacturer Glatt has succeeded in overcoming these challenges and established a mature continuous process technology to produce future materials at both laboratory scale for research purposes and at industrial levels. Time-consuming and risky scale-up procedures are eliminated because of the size-independent conditions — fluid mechanic and thermodynamic — that exist from lab- to commercial-scale production.
