Nordson Introduces New Drum Melter

Nordson Corp. has introduced its new High-Output Drum Melters (Models 5544 and 5554) that increase the melting process of thermoplastic adhesives.According to the company, these models can increase the melting process by 50 to 300 percent without an increase of temperature. This effectively increases roll-coater production rates while preserving adhesive properties.Through its unique design, the heated platen provides five times the hearing surface of flat platens.These new models are capable of melting solid adhesives at a rate of 800 pounds per hour (363 kilograms per hour) based on median viscosity. They also have Teflon®-coated fins and meltplate to reduce clean-up time. Circle 316.
