Abstract: The many moments model for dense gases and macromolecular fluids is considered here, where the upper order moment is chosen in accordance to the suggestions of the non-relativistic limit of the corresponding relativistic model. The solutions of the restrictions imposed by the entropy principle and that of Galilean relativity were, until now, obtained in the literature by using Taylor expansions around equilibrium and without proving convergence. Here, an exact solution without using expansions is found. The particular case with only 14 moments has already been treated in the literature in a completely different way. Here, it is proven that this particular closure is included in the presently more general one.
