Dryers for underwater pelletizing and strand pelletizing
MAAG offers various centrifugal dryers that dry large and small quantities of different pellets optimally and efficiently. CYCLO and CENTRO are ideally suited for spherical pellets. Our range also includes special centrifugal dryers for recycling products and high-performance dryers which enable the highest throughput rates in continuous processes.
The ECLN and EA dryers impress through their good accessibility and easy maintenance. The largely self-cleaning SC model reduces waiting times and machine downtimes.
The DURO belt dryer is the ideal choice when abrasive or brittle pellets such as glass fiber or mineral-filled compounds have to be dried.
MAAG Gala’s eXso centrifugal dryers are engineered to reduce cost through efficient changeover and higher reliability Direct drive rotor eliminates belts and pulleys reducing maintenance requirements 66% more interior access for efficient cleaning and inspection between runs Optimized rotor to housing ratio for proven drying effectiveness Interior lighting (optional) and large inspection window to monitor… [...]
CYCLO® is energy-efficient pellet drying with minimal space required. The dryers are suitable for use with both PEARLO® underwater pelletizing and M-USG and P-USG underwater strand pelletizing systems. Well thought-out and highly accessible components, such as the core rotor device, serve to provide excellent operating characteristics and efficient servicing. [...]
Easy-Clean Low-Noise (ECLN) pellet dryers are particularly easy to service and meet high demands on noise reduction < 80 dB(A). Features: Double walls filled with insulating material. Sound pressure level of < 80 dB(A) is possible. Large, wide doors and larger distances between rotor screens and dryer walls provide easy access to the interior. Integration… [...]
All members of the EASY ACCESS centrifugal pellet dryer series from Gala offer wide doors which permit easy, convenient and safe access for internal cleaning and maintenance. All Gala pellet dryers are supplied with door timed interlocks and local power disconnect for operator safety in polymer manufacturing. [...]
The Gala Self-Cleaning Pellet Dryer is designed to achieve a high degree of self-cleaning which will reduce the otherwise common downtimes to a minimum. In most cases, this centrifugal pellet dryer does not need to be cleaned and nor opened to prepare the system for a color change. The entire compounding line can continue production… [...]
CENTRO centrifugal dryer
The CENTRO series of dryers is suitable for use with both underwater pelletizing and underwater strand pelletizing systems. Well thoughtout and highly accessible components, such as the core rotor device, serve to provide excellent operating characteristics and efficient servicing. [...]
MAAG/Gala is the market leader for high capacity dryers. Large resin producers have the need for high capacity, continuous operation pellet dryers. By utilizing patented processes and innovative equipment designs, MAAG/Gala is capable to manufacture centrifugal pellet dryers with outputs up to 150 metric tons per hour (330,000 lbs/hr). Design innovations such as segmented rotor… [...]
Centrifugal Dryer for Recycled Products
Pellet dryer designs are based on current product rate testing. Gala has been conducting extensive testing on our centrifugal recycled plastic pellet dryers at full production rates since early 2007. [...]
The DURO belt dryer in combination with the underwater pelletizing systems from Gala and Automatik is the perfect solution for the production of abrasive or brittle pellets such as compounds highly filled with fiber glass or minerals. The drying process does not use any rotating parts and thus is a very gentle process reducing costs… [...]
The AERO impact dryer provides for gentle, low-impact separation of cooling water in connection with M-USG underwater strand pelletizing systems. As the pellets are conveyed and dried without moving mechanical parts, high pellet quality is guaranteed. Over several decades, many customers have valued the unique benefi ts of the AERO dryer, in particular for virgin… [...]
Impact dryer for drying raw material
The AERO impact dryer is regularly combined with the M-USG underwater strand pelletizing system to dry plastic pellets. The AERO dryer has been delivering consistently good drying performance for decades, especially in conjunction with virgin polymer raw materials.
Belt dryer for gentle drying
The DURO belt dryer is the ideal partner for MAAG’s underwater pelletizing systems in the production of abrasive or brittle pellets such as high glass fiber-filled or mineral-filled compounds. The pellets are dried very gently because there is no relative movement between the pellets and the dryer components.
