With the multidirectional polymer diverter valve (Gala Model MdPoDV), the melt is diverted sequentially into different directions during production. The MdPoDV is designed to allow a continuous operation of the production machine and to increase output without interruptions from a defined minimum throughput up to the maximum line throughput. The underwater pelletizing machine does not have to be stopped and no throughput related modifications are required, so only minimal start-up waste is generated. At least one additional diverting operation is integrated, in addition to diverting to the floor or production position, allowing faster changeover between two product flow directions or the sequential operation of multiple pelletizers connected to the same diverter valve. All these items optimize the production process.
