Century Inc. (Booth N5375) expanded its test laboratory with the recent addition of a Gala underwater pelletizer.
Installation of the pelletizer in Traverse City, Mich., allows Century to expand the range of compounds being developed by customers. Century runs the pelletizer with its CX twin-screw and 3+ Ring extruder. The latter is a twelve-screw, intermeshing, corotating extruder.
Gala Industries Inc. (Booth N8531) of Eagle Rock, Va., has installed a Century CX twin-screw extruder to expand its own customer demonstration laboratory.
In another development, Century selected Eisenbeiss GmbH of Enns, Austria, to supply multiscrew gearboxes for Century's 3+ extruder.
