Continuous Process (CP) System
Gala Underwater Pelletizing Systems are frequently used for the continuous and discontinuous production process of polycondensation polymer pellets (polyamides, polyester, etc.) downstream of a reactor.
- Ecellent pellet quality and uniformity
- High degree of automation
- Low maintenance requirements
A Gala Continuous Process (CP) System can include:
screen changer for melt filtration
dwell time definition
caprolactam handling (only for PA-6)
process water heating and filtration
integration of the extraction (only for PA-6)
overall line control
multiple lines in a parallel arrangement to achieve daily output
In the transition from the traditional strand pelletizing process to underwater, it is irrelevant whether the user opts for a continuous or a discontinuous process in the early stages of the project planning and design. Gala’s state-of-the-art underwater pelletizing technology can be used with either process and, due to the modular design, can later be easily changed.
