The Thermadose® hot melt pail pump system has an innovative elevator enabling easy loading and removal of a pail. The pail is placed on the elevator platform and is automatically raised to engage a static or optional inflatable seal depending on material specifications. A thermal platen is heated to the programmed temperature and the material flows to the gear pump while pressure is maintained by the platen.

Once programmed, a signal actuates a gear-pump with pressure regulation that provides a consistent, pulse-free and repeatable dispense rate. Temperature of the pail contents is kept to an optimum thermal efficiency by either an easy-clean smooth-platen for high-cost materials with low flow rates, or with a spiral-grid thermal platen that increases the surface area in contact with the material and is suitable for high-flow, hard-to-melt materials.

The absence of external rams results in a safe operator environment. All moving functions are fully enclosed and the enclosure is safety interlocked. Swivel-heated hose control-pods provide ergonomic handling for manual operations and dressing of hoses to automated systems.
