Water Box By-Pass

Developed by Gala to simplify the start-up phase of the underwater pelletizing process. The main benefits are:

  • 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.
