 ACHEMA 2018: Glatt GF ModFlex – compact production design for continuous spray agglomeration for food and feed ingredients

Based on proven fluidized bed technology Glatt offers the newly developed compact, flexible and modular plant concept Glatt GF ModFlex for continuous spray agglomeration for food and feed ingredients.

At ACHEMA, the leading international trade fair for the process industries in June in Frankfurt am Main, market leading supplier of fluidized bed and spouted bed technologies, Glatt, will showcase several new developments, including a new modular and compact plant concept for continuous agglomeration - focused on food applications - as well as a modular control system that’s easy to customize. Customers will benefint from maximum flexibility, minimum space requirements, fast installation by plug & play, low investment costs, reduced operation costs, and safe operation thanks to hygienic design, high filter performance, integrated WIP, and dust Ex-design (St 1)


For the first time, Glatt will introduce a compact, newly developed fluidized bed plant concept for the continuous fluid bed spray agglomeration of fine powders and powder blends. GF ModFlex enables the production of uniformly porous, virtually dust-free, outstandingly soluble and very easily dosed granules. The process also ensures the homogenous incorporation of ingredients into agglomerates.
 Being a gentle process, the nutritional and functional properties of the ingredients are preserved. When it comes to product quality, the systems designed due to this new concept are by no means inferior to its big “brothers”. Specially designed for production volumes of 100–3000 kg/h and, thanks to the compact design with space-saving filters, they are particularly suitable for use in confined spaces or rooms with low ceilings. Another plus: installation times are reduced by more than a third.
 The ATEX-compliant, wash-in-place (WIP) version solves two key challenges when processing powdery substances: cleaning operations are semi- or fully automated, time-saving and effective, and explosive powders can be processed safely. Depending on the application, the spray nozzles can be supplied as either top or bottom spray versions.
