Model SC

The Gala Self-Cleaning Dryer is designed to achieve a high degree of self-cleaning which will reduce the otherwise common downtimes to a minimum. In most cases, this dryer need not be cleaned and opened to prepare the system for a color change. The entire compounding line can continue production and the “cleaning material” generated in pellet form can be readily reused. Once the purging of the extrusion system has been completed, the downstream equipment will be clean, and in most cases without requiring the operator to open and clean the dryer manually. This development was helped by the fact that easy cleaning is a built-in design feature of all Gala equipment, which has proved an essential asset in every day operation, especially in view of the increasingly complex nature of the jobs to be fulfilled by the users. This model dryer can be constructed with double insulated walls for the low noise version. The gap is filled with insulating material so that a sound pressure level of <80 dBA is guaranteed. Thorough cleaning is achieved through a combination of spray nozzles with a powerful water jet, air injection and controlled draining elements. A PLC controlled module can be used to achieve the highest degree of automation possible and to adapt the cleaning process to the product-specific requirements. All Gala dryers are supplied with door timed interlocks and local power disconnect for operator safety. Features: •Double walls filled with insulating material. Sound pressure level of < 80 dBA is possible.
•Large, wide opening doors and larger distances between rotor screens and dryer walls provide easy and convenient access to the interior.

Strand Pelletizer T200 Series

The T200 Series Strand Pelletizer has been designed to substantially reduce maintenance and cleaning time. What would typically take 30 minutes to disassemble now takes only 2 minutes. Hand knobs and the pivoting feedroll assembly “Tips” forward for access to the lower feedroll and bed knife for easy cleaning and adjustment. The T200 Series can produce up to 6000 lbs/hr while running 85 strands at 700 RPM. The specific gravity for the materials being pelletized may increase or decrease the capacity. A Stellite tipped rotor, on a 3˚ helix provides a scissor-like cutting action for clean quality pellets. Rotor to bed knife adjustment is easily accomplished with the use of eccentrics. The eccentrics allow the rotor to be dialed into the bed knife to provide precise adjustments for even cuts. The lower feedroll also operates with eccentrics minimizing the gap between the doctor blade and the lower feedroll. The solid carbide bed knife is very economical with four usable edges. A Hypalon upper feedroll and diamond-knurled lower feedroll is belt driven for uniform pulling force on the incoming strands. The upper feedroll is offset directing strands directly into the bed knife producing quality pellets. Safety features include safety interlocks and a Dynamic braking system. The rotor automatically stops before the cover can be opened to avoid injury. The T200 Series Strand Pelletizer offers a variety of options. Quick-ship machines, sparepart deliveries, and rotor sharpening service are all part of Reduction Engineering Scheers guarantee of  ervice and manufacturing excellence.

Bidirectional Polymer Diverter Valve (BiPoDV)

With the bidirectional polymer diverter valve ( Model BiPoDV), the melt is diverted sequentially into different directions. This means that, depending on the requirements of the job, the machine operator can work with two pelletizing heads that can be individually configured. The operator can prepare the machine for the next task and assemble, heat and tighten the ideal pelletizing tools under full production conditions. All connecting channels are freely accessible so the most recently used channels can be thoroughly cleaned. For product change, the polymer diverter valve housing is rotated and lifted into the new production position so melt flow is directed to the new fully prepared tool. The change of melt direction for the next production job can be readied in very little time and without tools. A lift-and-rotate mechanism makes it possible to change to a fully prepared and heated die plate at the operative machine within minutes.

Fines Removal Sieve (FRS)

The Gala FRS removes fine particles >0.15 mm from the process water. Clean process water prevents product contamination and the settling of fines in key system components. The curved screen and collection basin are made of stainless steel. A self-priming pump and internal piping may be used to convey process water from the dryer and over the curved screen. If the gradient is appropriate, gravity feeding will be sufficient. The process water contaminated with particles is first conducted into a holding chamber and then flows evenly over the curved screen. The fines >0.15 mm are separated and collected in a collection basin. The filtered water is recirculated.

Band Filtration (BF)

The Gala Band Filtration System (BF) is designed for the pellet production line where there are several color changes throughout the day, and for the system used for cutting a product that creates fines resulting in contamination in the process water system. The operator do not have to monitor the system, the advance of the filter media is automatically activated in order to catch all fines down to 20 µm created before the process water becomes contaminated. In most of the cases, the water does not need to be replaced as it stays perfectly clean. The fines are continuously separated from the process water and collected in a mud cart.

Continuous Band Filtration (CBF)

The Gala Continuous Band Filtration (CBF) is also designed as a retrofit for the pellet production line where there are fines created regularly on some products and operator attendance would normally be required to clean the IS drawer in the production frequently. After installation of the CBF, the operator does not have to monitor the system anymore. The advance of the filter media is continuous and does not need any activation in order to catch fines larger than 150 µm. The process water contamination is in most cases eliminated. The fines are continuously separated from the process water and collected in a mud cart.

Dynamic Fines Removal System (DFRS)

The Gala DFRS removes particles down to 0.14 mm from the process water. Clean process water avoids the contamination of the product and the settling of fines in key system components.The entire volume of process water separated from the pellets in the centrifugal dryer is conveyed by a self-priming waste water pump to a vibrating screen where it is continuously filtered. The fines are automatically separated from the circulating water and collected in a container outside the water tank. The water dripping from the container is recycled into the process. By actuating a valve, the vibrating screen can be by-passed so the process water is conveyed directly into the tank.

Water Box By-Pass

Model JV Air Knife Series

Designed for 24/7 operation and very low noise levels, this vacuum strand dryer has been recognized by many compounders as the preferred method for drying strands. Built on a compact frame the JV series air knife has proven itself as a very effective method of drying strands utilizing vacuum only. Each model has a cantilevered vacuum strip that can be positioned and placed anywhere along the water bath to draw the water off the strands as they exit the water. This takes up less floor space and maximizes the efficiency while utilizing the heat of the strands to expel surface moisture that results in drier polymer entering the pelletizer. A stainless steel cyclone continuously separates the water from the air stream and the water exits to a drain port. The JV head assembly is designed to positively separate and support the strands before and after the suction bar. When placed at the end of the water tank these units can be outfitted with an optional drip tray. This tray collects the dripping water and returns the water back to the water tank. To further increase water savings, a sump pump can be installed to pump the water from the drain to the water bath.
