A Special Message from Gala Industries, Inc.


THE FINEST PELLET PRODUCTIONS SYSTEMS

Since 1959 Gala Industries has operated with the singular focus of providing the world’s best plastic pelletizing systems. Over the years, the Gala name has become synonymous with centrifugal drying and underwater pelletizing in polymer production. Since 1969, Gala has shipped over 5,700 Pelletizing systems and 8,000 centrifgal pellet dryers. Gala underwater pelletizers are considered absolutely state-of-the-art in cutting technology while simultaneously reducing the number of mechanical parts to a minimum, improving maintenance time and lowering repair costs. But Gala goes far beyond manufacturing the equipment. They have become the global experts in plastic pelletizing processes. Their systems have improved the process for working with some of the more difficult materials such as adhesives and engineered resins and their dedicated micropellet technology research and engineering team have created the ability to produce pellets as small as 400 -500 micron. The Gala team works directly with clients on the specific pellet application to determine the best system components resulting n better operations and more satisfied customers.

Company Profile

Gala manufactures the world's finest plastic pelletizers and centrifugal dryers. Our strength is in our employees dedication to their customers and their product. Gala specializes in plastic pelletizing processes, leading the industry with their innovation and success.

  • Extrusion/Compounding at K 2013: Having It All

    Extrusion processors no longer need to chose among speed, quality, and flexibility, based on exhibits at K 2013.

  • Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: Advances Push Efficiency Envelope

    Blown film towers may have been scarce, but there was no shortage of new technology aimed at helping to make extrusion processors more profitable.

  • Compounding: New Torque Record Set At K '10

    New twin from Coperion also pumps up output by 30%

  • EXTRUSION & COMPOUNDING: Five-Layer Film Structures Set to Supplant Three Layers?

    In blown film, equipment and material suppliers have come together to push five-layer technology into non-barrier applications previously held by three-layer films.

  • K 2010 Preview, Compounding ‘Slower’ Compounders Suggest Trend Toward Energy-Efficient Designs

    channel depth in larger machines, which exposes the material to less mechanical stress at comparable residence times.

  • NPE News in Compounding

    Compounding news at the show includes several new ways to feed low-bulk-density materials faster for higher outputs with corotating twin screws.

  • K 2007 Compounding: New Approaches to Mixing, Pelletizing

    In addition to the news reported in our September K Show preview (see Learn More), previously unrevealed developments in Dusseldorf include several ingenious devices designed to save energy, reduce wear, and safeguard compounded material properties.

  • By moving pellets very rapidly through the water after the cutting chamber in an underwater pelletizer, Gala Industries Inc., Eagle Rock, Va., retains more heat in the pellets.

  • Starting about two years ago, Gala in Germany (U.S. office in Eagle Rock, Va.), retrofitted coil heaters in underwater pelletizer dies to replace cartridge heaters and found that the coils lasted far longer than cartridges.

  • NPE Newsfinder: Compounding and Mixing

    For the second straight NPE show, the focus in compounding is on twin-screw machines that deliver more speed and torque—thus more output—than ever before. No fewer than six suppliers of twin-screw compounders are showing such machines. There’s something to see in in-line systems as well. And there’s plenty of news in PVC mixers and pelletizing equipment, too.
