Crystalline Pellet Technology (CPT®)

Direct crystallization process avoids the use of expensive pre-crystallizers and crystallizers prior to taking the PET pellets into the SSP process or other downstream after-treatment processes. The Gala CPT process complements this process and is superior in method of operation.

Goals of CPT Process:
  • Retain sufficient heat in pellets to cause crystallization without additional external heat;
  • All the free flowing pellets to go directly into packaging or other downstream process
ADVANTAGES:
  • Savings in capital costs by eliminating pre-crystallizer and crystallizer, reducing installation costs
  • Savings in energy costs by reducing the amount of equipment required and by utilizing the pellet’s internal heat going into the SSP process
