Unit makes quick work of tough material jobs

The A5PAC hydropneumatically adjustable pelletizer has a throughput rate of 50 to 15,000 kg/hr. This underwater pelletizing unit has fully automated control of blade adjustment, positioning, and monitoring. Pellets produced show consistency in form and are clean cut. Both blade and die-face life are lengthened due to the stability of the hydraulic controls, which also equates into less operator supervision. When the blade eventually approaches the end of its service life, a signal is given to the operator so the system can be temporarily shut down for blade change. This is said to take no more than three minutes. Gala Kunststoff- und Kautschukmaschinen GmbH, Xanten, Germany; +49 2801 9800
