Easy Access Models: The noise level of an Easy Access Dryer is 95 dB(A) or less at 1 meter processing 3 mm diameter x 3 mm long LDPE pellets and the buyer insulating the pellet outlet and air outlet lines. This can be reduced to 87 dB(A) or less with optional low noise modifications. (Please note that larger and/or harder pellets will adversely affect the noise level.)

Easy Clean Low Noise Models: The noise level of an Easy Clean Low Noise Dryer is <80 dBA or less at 1 meter processing 3 mm diameter x 3 mm long LDPE pellets and the buyer insulating the pellet outlet and air outlet lines.
(Please note that larger and/or harder pellets will adversely affect the noise level.)
Residual Pellet Moisture: A surface moisture of nil to 0.05% (500 ppm) can be achieved on smooth pellets if the internal pellet heat is 60° C. or above, and the pellets do not contain fines, agglomerates, melt fracture or additives. Gala recommends that the line between the pelletizer and the dryer be as short as practical for maximum pellet heat and minimum outlet moisture. Packaging at the outlet nozzle of a centrifugal pellet dryer is not recommended if low moisture levels are desired. The residence time in a dryer is less than 10 seconds and this time is seldom sufficient to flash all of the residual moisture. If the pellets are hot, residual moisture will flash in downstream equipment. Pneumatic conveyors, classifiers and vented storage bins are ideal for flashing residual moisture.
