23.07.2018 Glatt wins ACHEMA award

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, Weimar, Germany, last month was honoured with the ACHEMA Innovation Award for its TwinPro® pharmaceutical plant, which combines two batch processes. Another highlight at Glatt Group’s joint pavilion was a novel compact plant concept for powder agglomeration, which can be installed and ready for operation in just 12 days.

The short construction time and 12-day installation period for the new GF ModFlex fluid bed compact plant for continuous spray agglomeration was a central theme of the company’s process technology food, feed & fine chemicals division. Sales manager Lutz Heinzl commented: “We had trade visitors from 70 countries, including notable numbers from well known companies in Asia, Russia, North Africa and South America, in addition to companies from Europe. Important topics for us were, for example, the possibilities to functionalise and enhance bulk products like detergents, cosmetics, fertilisers and pesticides, as well as industrial salts." Product samples, including spray granulated phosphate fertiliser, microencapsulated orange oil and coated enzymes, also attracted a great deal of interest.

The ProCell LabSystem mobile laboratory was, once again, one of the most popular exhibits. It enables product developers from the food, feed and fine chemicals sectors to test their ideas in every possible fluid bed and spouted bed process and to determine optimum parameters to achieve the desired functionality.
