By Chemical Engineering |

Gala Industries

This company has engineered a centrifugal dryer with the highest known capacity for drying polyolefin pellets. High-capacity resin producers, engineering companies and equipment manufacturers require a single dryer for virgin resins. This company has successfully increased the drying capacity of its Model 100 dryer (photo) to 150 ton/h, processing high-density polyethylene (HDPE) with lentoid pellet geometry and melt flow index of 0.35, with moisture below 500 parts per million (ppm). Future plans include a number of new concepts that will be evolving over the next 12 months, says the company. — Gala Industries, a Maag company, Eagle Rock, Va.
