IWF: Nordson presents VersaPail bulk melters

Duluth, Georgia, USA –Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ: NDSN) VersaPail™ bulk melters are designed to provide outstanding precision in the application of hot melt adhesive from 20-liter or 5-gallon pails. Particularly well-suited for reactive adhesives, such as moisture-cure polyurethanes, VersaPail bulk melters only melt the top surface of adhesive allowing the remaining material in the pail to stay solid, reducing thermal stress and protecting bonding characteristics. The system’s hydraulic passages are also designed to eliminate dead spaces where undesired curing could result.

Available with a variety of pump types and sizes, VersaPail melters can be customized to accommodate a wide range of adhesives and meet manufacturers’ specific requirements. A powerful industrial PC provides operators with full control of the adhesive system via an easy-to-use graphical touch-screen interface, with messages and indicators for each activity and machine status condition.

For applications that require continuous operation, Nordson’s automatic changeover system can also link two bulk melters together to eliminate the downtime associated with pail changes.

Nordson’s VersaPail melters offer manufacturers a number of other key advantages, including:

* Easy installation and setup
* Single-side access for controls and pail changes
* A choice of automatic or manual aeration systems
* Variable speed motors and precision gear pumps, with optional dual-stream and hardened versions
* An adjustable pressure control valve for greater accuracy, as well as optional automatic pressure control systems
* Pail centering and clamping for more precise pail positioning and control
* Modular, non-stick axial and smooth melt platens, offering quick change and easy clean-up
* Four additional temperature channels for control of spray guns, heaters, etc.
