Powder handling How Powder Handling Can Profit From Modular Plant Concepts
Transferring fine powders and powder mixtures into uniformly porous, practically dust-free, soluble and meterable granulates is what Glatt's new GF Modflex plant concept achieves in an endless loop with consistently top quality and safety.
The space miracle is based on established Glatt fluid bed technology and, thanks to gentle process control, preserves the nutritional and functional properties of the products. The compact modular system guarantees a changeover at short notice, with limited space and production volumes of 100–3000 kg/h. The Atex-compliant concept, equipped with WIP cleaning, also scores with a short installation time of only 12 days and an integrated room and zone setup.
At Powtech 2019, the plant manufacturing and process development specialists are also is presenting a groundbreaking waste-free process that recycles the phosphorus from ash to produce ready-to-use high-quality fertilisers. The second highlight is a new plant concept for continuous powder agglomeration: it’s extremely economical, versatile and, thanks to its modular design, is ready for operation in 2 weeks. In the first step of the two-stage "Phos4green" process, a suspension is produced from the phosphate-containing ash, a mineral acid and, depending on the objective, other components. The suspension is then spray granulated in the fluidised bed. This results in fertiliser granulates that are available to plants and soil, which can be discharged, filled and delivered directly after the desired grain size has been reached.
