Graco Advanced Fluid Dispense (AFD) announces the Therm-O-Flow Bulk Hot Melt System for both primary and secondary sealing applications in the glass industry.ThermOFlow_200_R (1)

The Therm-O-Flow 200 is available in configurations specially tailored to the glass and window industry for applying both primary and secondary seal materials, according to the company. When applying the primary seal for insulated glass, the Therm-O-Flow 200 dispenses hot melt butyl to a spacer sidewall in an offline, automated process. The spacer is then sandwiched between glass panels and hot-applied desiccant or matrix material is automatically dispensed inside the spacer. For the secondary seal, hot-applied butyl material is dispensed behind the glass spacer, either manually or automatically, and around the perimeter of the insulated glass panel. Higher melt and flow rates directly improve productivity in these applications, and precision temperature controls ensure consistent processes.

Adjustable low/empty level sensors are standard on every Therm-O-Flow, so you never run out of material unexpectedly. Other features include an integrated drum air blow-off, graphic-based control screens and USB data downloads.
