ITW DYNATEC: Bulk Adhesive Melter

This company has announced the availability of its new DM55 DynaDrumTM Bulk Adhesive Melter. Featuring a touch-screen PLC Human/Machine Interface, the DM55 offers field-interchangeable platen faces to accommodate various adhesives, a high adhesive flow rate of up to 600lb/hr, and up to 25,000 lbs of platen force. Standard features include a 7-day timer, self-diagnostics, temperature setback, warning light and drum low and empty indicators.

Incorporating a modular heated platen offering a heat capacity of 35kW at an operating temperature of 400°F (204°C), the DM55 Bulk Melter provides efficient, reliable adhesive supply. The versatile platen has interchangeable, hard anodized, Teflon®-coated faces mounted on dual 8-inch cylinders that deliver up to 8000 lbs of force. Optionally, the cylinders can be operated on low-pressure hydraulic (air-over-oil) service at pressures up to 250 psi, delivering up to 25,000 pounds of force. Its pneumatically actuated dual sealing system is designed to adapt to variations in drum diameters, providing optimum seal effectiveness regardless of the application. Due to its superior sealing characteristics, the pneumatic seal also protects the platen from sinking when the system is in standby mode.
