The Therm-O-Flow 200 bulk melt systems feature heated, ram-mounted, supply pumps with a patented non-stick, heated Mega-Flo platen that transfers hot-melt and warm-melt sealants and adhesives up to 204°C (400°F) from drums to a variety of manual or automatic, extrusion or swirl applicators. The systems utilize the company’s Severe-Duty Check-Mate® pumps with power ratios up to 70:1, allowing them to handle high viscosity materials (up to 5 million mPa) at flow rates to 2.8 gpm (10.6 lpm) at 60 cpm.
The systems feature EasyKey™, said to be a simple, easy-to-use intuitive control that displays actual and set point temperatures, a material totalizer that can be reset to track job or daily material usage, as well as a 7-day automatic startup timer that can be configured to have the system ready to go when a shift begins. It also features integrated self-diagnostics, designed to provide quick, easy maintenance, and sensors to signal when drum changes are needed.
The bulk melt system also provides temperature control in up to 12 zones, and features an improved blow-off and vent design, as well as quick-change pump packings. Therm-O-Flow is CE-approved. Graco Inc., www.graco.com
