Newer hot melt technologies like low temperature EVA’s and Metallocene are formulated to run cleaner than previous hot melt formulations; this can lead us to think hot melt tank cleaning is no longer necessary. This is not true, as most hot melt tank and hose char is caused by foreign materials introduced to the hot melt tank or simply dust, dirt and products in the plant environment.
Routine hot melt system cleaning/maintenance is required in order to keep hot melt equipment running at peak performance, and productivity as high as possible. Most production downtime can be avoided with hot melt system cleaning and preventative maintenance.
