Gala will be introducing a Rotational Valve at NPE2015.
Modular system has a low enough profile to slide right into a warehouse-type building.
Targets applications requiring one, two, or all three of its functions—drying, cooling or classifying of extruded pellets
System combines compounding and sheet processing in one step.
Reportedly offers more vigorous mixing, greater size reduction and higher throughput compared to conventional rotor/stators and colloid mills.
Series is aimed compounding, masterbatch production, devolatilization, rubber/elastomer and dewatering.
Process is called 'bumping.'
Higher chromium content is the key.
Savings of up to 17% are reportedly possible by the elimination of a separate fines-removal sieve and pump.
Can be transformed from a compounding system to one for extruding blown or cast film by exchanging the dies and docking module for the new processes
