Nordson Corp. announced the global release of its new ProBlue Liberty, an integrated tankless melter and multi-hose fill system that allows packagers to reduce waste, char, downtime and energy consumption on their production lines, the company says. The new system incorporates Nordson’s latest tankless technology, originally introduced in Nordon’s Freedom system, into the ProBlue series of melters, which service more than 100,000 hot-melt packaging applications worldwide, it says. ProBlue Liberty also incorporates a proprietary sensor that monitors molten adhesive levels in a small hopper and alerts the fill system to add the appropriate amount of hot melt. By melting only what is needed when it is needed, the ProBlue Liberty melter virtually eliminates char buildup, it notes. The new multi-hose adhesive fill system is flexible, based on the application, and can feed from one to four melters, helping packagers reduce adhesive waste caused by manual filling, it says. The ProBlue Liberty tankless system is compatible with all Nordson Blue Series hoses and applicators, will process any free-flowing hot melt, and can be interchanged with existing Nordson melters.
