i-Heat® Process (patent pending)

i-Heat® is a process that uses gas injection to separate and speed the pellets to the Gala dryer. An inert gas is injected into a key point in the process slurry line. This decreases the residence time and contact time with water, which results in a pellet with most of its internal heat (i-Heat) remaining. This internal heat flashes off moisture, which results in highly improved moisture levels for reinforced plastic produced with the underwater pelletizing system.
