Underwater pelletizing systems for the plastics industry

Gala and Automatik — two leading brand names in underwater pelletizing systems, centrifugal dryers, and process solutions for the plastics industry — have been offering joint solutions under the MAAG umbrella brand since 2015.

The high product quality and well-conceived detailing of the underwater pelletizers and centrifugal dryers for polymer production and processing guarantee the return on investment demanded by customers. Every single component, spare part, and process control unit is manufactured by experienced employees according to the uncompromising quality standards that make MAAG the epitome of reliability in the pelletizing of polymers.

High-quality solutions for the underwater pelletizing of plastics also include temperature-controlled water systems, process water systems, control systems, as well as various additional equipment including starting switches, band pass filtration, arched screens, grinding tools for die plates, knives, knife heads, non-stick coatings, cutting chamber, bypass piping, quick connectors, and others.
