Safety concepts. Heat recovery. Environmental compatibility.
POWTECH. 26 – 28 September, 2023 / Nuremberg, Germany
Meet the Glatt plant engineering experts at booth 2-216
Hygienic design, trouble-free processes and occupational health and safety
Plan and operate process plant safely
Glatt, the pioneer of fluid bed and spouted bed technology for bulk solids processing, will be presenting cutting-edge safety concepts at POWTECH 2023 in Nuremberg (Germany) that go far beyond current legal requirements. As a plant manufacturer and operator, Glatt combines professional engineering with extensive technological know-how from its own practical experience. Visitors to the stand can discover which comprehensive concepts and innovations Glatt has developed and how they pay off in terms of product quality, fire/explosion protection, operational safety, heat recovery and environmental compatibility.
Glatt takes a holistic approach to planning new facilities and converting existing ones. This not only focuses on optimal particle design, but also ensures sustainable operation, especially in bulk materials processing industries. In addition to optimised space concepts and complete building solutions, Glatt’s expertise extends to waste and environmental management, energy concepts and the handling and containment of toxic and highly active substances.
Hygienic design and product safety
Particular attention is paid to hygienic and safe production, especially in the food sector and for items destined for the consumer market. Glatt has implemented robust processes in production facilities to meet the requirements of the Global Food Safety Initiative’s Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC), which minimises product liability in the event of damage.
Glatt specialists take structural and conceptual aspects into account, as well as the process itself, to develop new concepts for the dust- and contamination-free handling of highly active toxic products, for example. Design improvements such as securing individual components against overpressure-induced bursting are also part of the process and make cleaning and maintenance work on fluidised bed and spouted bed systems significantly safer for employees.
Tailor-made explosion protection
Glatt offers various explosion prevention devices and measures that have been assessed theoretically and subsequently proven in practical tests. Ignition sources are avoided as far as possible, all parts are earthed and an appropriate plant design is chosen to ensure maximum safety. Customers can select from the most appropriate option, whether that’s explosion suppression, pressure relief, inert gas or vacuum operation.
At the Glatt Technology Centre in Weimar, not only are tests done on the production and functionalisation of powders, granulates and pellets, but further trials are run to optimise the process. Safety-relevant processes can also be tested at laboratory scale before being used in production.
“Our many years of experience as a plant manufacturer and operator enable us to offer our clients customised safety concepts that meet their specific requirements. We focus on forward-thinking action and stand for maximum protection, efficiency and quality in bulk solids production,” says Dr Michael Jacob, Head of Process Technology at Glatt Ingenieurtechnik.
We are looking forward to your visit!
