CRAFCO sealant melters offer an unbeatable fastest heat up time of the material to the application temperature, minimal demand on maintenance and cleaning, high daily performance and safety. Fully automated control makes the operation easier, moreover it ensures the right use of the machine and it rises the safety. Just set up the desired temperature and the machine starts to heat the transfer oil in order to heat the material, patented electric heated hose and wand. When the temperature of the material reaches the desired temperature the material agitation starts. Also when the hose reaches the desired temperature the pump starts up and it is possible to start the work. Thus it avoids the application of the material in a lower temperature than it is prescribed and also it avoids the pump or agitator damage. Thanks to low-voltage (12V) heated hose and wand, the material can not freeze up and thus it is not necessary to clean the hose with the compressor in each pause. It is not necessary to heat the hose on the grate. The machines have other safety components such as agitator stop when opening the loading lid – splash-proof lid, so the material does not spill out and the operator does not burn. The material loading is solved easier – the material and the plastic wrap is taken out of the box, put on the open loading lid and then the whole lid is closed and the material falls into the tank without the risk for the operator. We supply the machines also in the variant with an efficient compressor, which is not assigned for cleaning the hose, but for cleaning the cracks and joints with the compressed air, or for drying the cracks and joints with the hot-air lancet. The machines can be supplied on a trailer, on a trailer with self-propelled variant or only “skid mount” – without the trailer on a steel plate so it can be used on the load space of car.
