Glatt GmbH

Developing, processing and refinement of powder solids

Glatt GmbH has specialized in the developing, processing and refinement of powder solids and tablet manufacturing. As a pioneer in fluidized bed technology, Glatt is the partner to companies in the pharmaceutical, food, animal feed and fine chemicals industries.

Technology and processes for granulation, drying, pelletisation and coating of solids

The core technology is the fluid bed process for the granulation, drying, pelletisation and coating of solids.

With the introduction of the Advanced Pulse Powder technology – or APPtec® for short – Glatt has expanded their expertise in innovative particle design through powder synthesis as an upstream process. As a result, Glatt is now able to offer you integrated solutions throughout the entire value chain – from primary particle manufacturing to refining, and right up to finished tablets and ready-to-use granules.

Glatt offers powder processing machines for the following processes:

  • Spray granulation (granules from liquids)
  • Spray agglomeration (granules from powders)
  • Spray coating (coating or encapsulation of particles)
  • Spray encapsulation (encapsulation of valuable materials from the liquid)

Applications for granules and pellets

Granules and pellets are required for a wide range of applications:

  • Food additives (vitamins, spices, flavorings, sweeteners, preservatives, stabilizers, nutrition, milk proteins)
  • Texture agents
  • Instant drinks and instant soups
  • Enzymes (detergent enzymes, feed enzymes, perfumes and flavors)
  • Microorganism
  • Essential oils
  • Bleaching agents
  • Detergents (surfactants, polymers, laundry detergents, phosphonates)
  • Ceramic powders
  • Catalytic powders
  • Pigments
  • Polymers
  • Salts (calcium chloride, sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, lithium chloride)
  • Pesticides (copper oxychloride, copper hydroxide, imidacloprid, neonicotinoids)
  • Fertilizers (methylene urea, mixed fertilizer, NPK fertilizer

Glatt Technology Center

Thanks to continuous research and development in process engineering for powder synthesis, the granulation of powders and liquids, and particle coating through fluidized bed or spouted bed technology, our systems are now able to develop and optimize products that could hardly be processed even just a few years ago. Refine your powder and liquids into functional granules and pellets that are tailored to your needs.
