Case Study – Pumping KLEIBERIT PUR HotCoating® Material Using a Uniflow® Hot Melt Drum Unloader

Pumping any type of PUR (polyurethane reactive) adhesive requires a hot melt drum unloader, as the material is solid at room temperature and must be heated to convert it to liquid form. KLEIBERIT HotCoating® materials deliver unique performance advantages, but also create challenges for the drum unloader.  This document provides information on HotCoating® and on […]

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 […]

[Case Study] – Hot Melt Drum Unloader Project for the Tape Industry

Worthen had recently installed two new hot melt drum unloaders built by a competitor, each of which was expected to pump 600 lbs of pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) per hour, but only ended up pumping 325-350 lbs per hour. That’s when UNIflow stepped in.
