Product Spotlight: Adhesive-Delivery System

June 19, 2008
The ADS1 DynaFill adhesive delivery system eliminates the need to manually fill adhesive tank hoppers and minimizes adhesive contamination by reducing adhesive exposure to the environment.

Gradually adding adhesive to the tank hopper also stabilizes the heat in the system for cleaner operation. The system integrates into, and is compatible with, most adhesive-application equipment. The inlet cover fits directly on the hotmelt unit’s adhesive tank hopper.

The self-contained system operates on 20 cfm at 50 psi and automatically draws and transfers adhesive to the tank hopper when the level falls to a preset minimum. Adhesive is drawn through a suction wand immersed in the adhesive bin and delivered under positive pressure to the tank hopper. A vibrator on the wand keeps the adhesive flowing freely. A capacitive sensor immersed in the tank hopper senses when the adhesive level is low and responds by transmitting a signal to draw adhesive through the wand and transfer it to the hopper. The sensor shuts off the flow when the tank hopper is full.

The system feeds a hot-melt unit up to 22 ft vertically and 100 ft horizontally.
