High Performance Extrusion Melt Unit - The versatile Slautterback® KB10 Melt Unit supplies hotmelt adhesive for a wide range of manual or automatic packaging and product assembly operations. Designed for low volume applications, the KB10 holds up to 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) of hotmelt in pillow, pellet, slab or bulk form. The cylindrical shape of the melt tank concentrates heat at the tank bottom while maintaining cooler temperatures at the top. This minimizes adhesive degradation and charring which reduces pump, hose and nozzle plugging. An electric motor driving a positive displacement gear pump pressurizes and feeds adhesive through heated hoses to handguns or automatic applicators.

The reliable and rugged Slautterback® KB10 Melt Unit is one of the most reliable yet simple to use hot melt systems available.
