Regular preventative maintenance is essential to keeping equipment at peak performance, and productivity as high as possible. Most downtime can be avoided by preventative maintenance, which saves money, and creates more uptime and less need for replacement of costly equipment and parts. Cleaners and lubricants are designed and formulated for use in manufacturing and industrial environments. From heavy-duty industrial lubricants to general-purpose cleaners, APPLIED satisfies the most demanding maintenance requirements in your facility.

APPLIED Adhesives recommends all hot-melt systems be cleaned and purged every 3-6 months, or each time a customer switches from one type of adhesive to another. Periodic cleaning helps maintain the integrity of the hot-melt equipment and enable the hot-melt to perform at it’s peak potential.

This type of consistent preventative maintenance will:

  • Maximize Efficiency – Over time normal wear and tear creates reduced efficiencies such as restricted hot-melt flow and inaccurate bead placement.
  • Increase Machine Life – Regular cleaning extends the life of equipment by reducing slow pump stroke, nozzle clogs and premature hose failures.
  • Minimize Down Time – Helps avoid contamination that results in plugged nozzles and charring pots.
  • Save Time – Preventative maintenance takes less time and money than emergency troubleshooting and repairs.
  • Produce Long-Term Savings – Reduces maintenance and unscheduled shutdowns.
  • Safety – Maintaining peak performance helps avoid emergency maintenance calls which can cause hurried, unsafe repair situations.
