Phosphorus recovery on an industrial scale

Phosphate fertilizer from recycled sewage sludge ash: Glatt's PHOS4green technology provides an economically and ecologically viable solution suitable for closing the phosphorus cycle.

Specialized Powder Synthesis

The composition and homogeneity of the raw materials used are becoming increasingly important in medical technology. With an advanced powder synthesis process, particularly high-quality nano- and microscale powders can be produced or refined – for example, for dental implants.

How to Tame Recalcitrant Ingredients with Technological Processes

Plant-based functional ingredients behave differently than manufacturers of nutraceuticals and cosmetic products would like. Innovative processes such as double microencapsulation can help them to overcome bioavailability and solubility challenges.

Service is More Than Just a Job

How good, agile service enhances a company’s reputation and becomes a gateway to the customer?Germany is not a service desert: For pharmaceutical machinery manufacturer Glatt, the after-sales service team is a source of pride.

Coating technology improvements deliver outstanding value for money

The coating process should produce smooth, uniform and taste-masked tablets, capsules, or pellets with a defined degree of solubility. In a manufacturing environment, these results need to be reproducible and the process time short.

HAPILA reaching completion of design for new GMP production plant for APIs

High-potency active ingredient specialist CDMO HAPILA GmbH (HAPILA) is ramping up its production capacity with two new GMP plants now in its manufacturing pipeline.

Fraunhofer IKTS operates world’s first flameless high-temperature powder synthesis plant

The German Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS relies on technology from Glatt to produce high-purity, high-performance oxide materials.

Beyond the equipment – real solutions that add value

Tablets continue to be a popular pharmaceutical dosage form. They are relatively easy to manufacture, package and transport; offer good physical and chemical stability; and facilitate simple and accurate dosing.

Optimising functional ingredients for enhanced nutrition

Fluidised bed and spouted bed processes by Glatt offer manufacturers almost unlimited possibilities in terms of optimised particle design and the functionalisation of ingredients, the properties of which can be fine-tuned using spray granulation, agglomeration, microencapsulation and coating.

Faster to Market

We at Glatt keep our finger on the pulse of the market and seek partnerships in research-intensive future projects. Which properties of raw materials need to be optimized to work for one specific application? How can this quality be achieved and economically adjusted on an industrial scale?

Glatt Pharmaceutical Services and Aprecia to Advance Patient Focused Pharmaceuticals with Aprecia’s 3D-Printing Technology

Glatt Pharmaceutical Services and Aprecia announce their joint effort to accelerate and expand the use of Glatt’s multiparticulate technologies through Aprecia's 3DP manufacturing.

Drying, refining and functionalising in one process step

Fluid bed and spouted bed technologies from Glatt offer multiple benefits for food processing. Particles can be economically refined, functionalized and dried at the same time via spray granulation, spray coating or spray agglomeration.
