Water Box By-Pass
Developed by Gala to simplify the start-up phase of the underwater pelletizing process for polymer production using underwater cutting.
- Ensures water flow into the cutting chamber at the desired time in a repeatable manner.
- Economical by reducing water loss to only that volume in the cutting chamber and between the valves.
- Constant water temperature is maintained and provided during the start-up phase even after a service stop. This is achieved as the water continues to circulate in the main piping loop and is temperature regulated during this period.
- Provides reproducible starting conditions and reduces energy and water consumption, as well as material loss.
