The Nordson system provides the hydraulic and electrical components to link bulk delivery tanks to multiple melters. These include a docking station, pumping station, temperature and level control, adhesive supply hoses, and melter lid-fill kits. The closed system reduces adhesive contamination that can cause nozzle clogging, downtime and associated maintenance. Automated melter filling limits operator involvement and potential for injury caused by lifting or moving adhesive boxes, molten adhesive splash-back, and adhesive floor spills. This closed design also minimizes employee exposure to fumes and particulates caused by open adhesive boxes and melter lids.
