Estimating the Cost of a Hot Melt Drum Unloader

Hot melt drum unloaders are used to heat high-viscosity polymers and pump them into a customer’s manufacturing process.

Some of the hot melt materials that are typically processed include:

Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA)
Polyurethane Reactive Adhesives (PUR)
Butyl
Cable Sealants
Among many others

Manufacturing processes that use hot melt drum unloaders include roll coating, cable manufacturing, spray coating, and hand […]
