January 15, 2008 - Combining melter and adhesive feed system, ProBlue® Fulfill(TM) System automatically maintains desired adhesive levels in melter tanks. Integrated capacitance sensor detects low adhesive levels and transmits signal to suction lance. Using vacuum, system conveys adhesive as pellets, pastilles, and mini-slats from supplied closed adhesive storage container directly to melter tank. Adding small quantities of adhesive at regular intervals prevents sealed tank from running dry.

DULUTH, Georgia - January 4, 2007 - The new ProBlue Fulfill integrated melter and adhesive feed system from Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq - NDSN), automatically maintains desired adhesive levels in the melter tank to increase uptime, reduce clogged adhesive nozzles and deliver consistent bonding.

An innovative alternative to manual filling of melter adhesive tanks and automated feed systems that require retrofit kits, the ProBlue Fulfill combines the adhesive melter and the automated filling apparatus as a single integrated system, resulting in fast, easy set up and operation.

An integrated capacitance sensor detects low adhesive levels and transmits a signal to a suction lance. Using vacuum, the system then conveys adhesive in the shape of pellets, pastilles and mini-slats from the supplied, closed adhesive storage container directly to the melter tank. Adding small quantities of adhesive at regular intervals prevents the sealed tank from running dry and reduces adhesive char, contaminants and incorrect adhesive temperatures that can result in poor bonding.

The closed system virtually eliminates adhesive from becoming contaminated with dirt, dust or other debris. By removing the need for manual refilling of melter tanks, operators are free to perform other, more productive tasks. In addition, operator exposure to hot surfaces, repetitive lifting to fill adhesive tanks and the adhesive spills common with manual filling are minimized.

The ProBlue Fulfill system is currently available in 4, 7 and 10-liter melter capacities.
