Hot melt adhesive supply units (ASUs) require frequent adhesive re-filling.
If the operator does not refill the ASU often enough, there can be insufficient time to melt and condition the adhesive. this results in equipment down time and employees waiting untill the hopper temperature returns to setpoint.
Installation of a HF Hopper feeder system reduces all of the above problems. The result is lower repair costs and higher production rates.
The HF-2 Hopper Feeder utilizes an air venturi-activated suction to pick up the solid "chicklet" or ball form of hot melt adhesive from a bulk container (such as a 32-gallon plastic drum or a 250-gallon tote) and convey it by air pressure to the hopper.
