01.07.2019 Meeting stringent sustainability demands through better particle design

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik, Weimar, Germany, will showcase current research activities and solutions for the development of contemporary, high-performance ingredients at the SEPAWA congress for the detergents/cleansers, cosmetics and fragrance industry in Europe, which takes place 23–25 October in Berlin. Whether it is a question of replacing certain ingredients or developing completely new recipes, fluid and spouted bed technologies offer a number of design possibilities when it comes to particle design, including the washing of stabilisers, enzymes, polymers, fragrances and flavours, and optimising the production and protection of other active substances.

Spray granulation, spray agglomeration, spray coating or spray encapsulation (microencapsulation) can be used to enhance the properties of sensitive raw materials for new formulations and functionalise particles. Dissolution, release behaviour and homogeneity parameters can be improved to guarantee optimum cleaning activity with the minimum use of raw materials. In addition, because they can then be better, more specifically and more reliably compacted and dosed, packaging design savings can also be achieved.

At the event, process engineer Katja Oppermann, Glatt Process Technology Food, Feed & Fine Chemicals, will give a presentation on “Process options in fluidised bed technology for value-adding product forms" and explain how the development of innovative products depends on state-of-the-art technologies. She will give an overview of Glatt’s current research activities, provide examples of how the various process principles are applied, examine how specific particle structures can be designed using technical plant configurations and discuss which drying principles and technologies are essential for optimum product performance.
