In studying the dynamics of drying of PBT and PET granulate, the parameters of the process that ensure sufficient process stability of their melts were determined. It was found that the rate of self-ordering of structural elements in the polymer substrate in drying is higher in PBT than in PET due to the greater flexibility of the macromolecules.
