Hot melt kettle is a key equipment for heating thermoplastic paint. In the marking process, thermoplastic paint must be melt into a liquid state by preheater equipment. Then road line marking machines can spray hot coating on the road surface. And coating quality is directly related to the marking line. Thermoplastic paint kettle adopts mechanical transmission, high-quality melt cylinder, direct injection burner. It has the advantages of stable performance, good efficiency, easy to operate and maintain. YG thermoplastic melter includes Single Cylinder Engine Kettle and Double Cylinder Engine Kettle.
Parameter of Double Cylinder Engine Kettle:
- Model: YG-600
- Capacity: 300*2kg
- Power: 8HP
- Heating method: LPG
- Dimension: 1320*1400*1650mm
How does the Hot Melt Kettle Work?
1. Pour thermoplastic paint into kettle.
Open the feeding gate, and put 2-3 bags paint into each cylinder.
2. Burn torch and stove.
Light the torch, and extend it into the stove. Open the valve of the liquefied gas tank first, then open the burner valve of the stove, and light the stove. The burner valve can control the size of fire. In the process of thermoplastic paint heat preservation, turn the burner valve down. So as to avoid the bottom paint forming a paste, which can affect the quality of the marking.
3. Startup the diesel engine.
Before starting the diesel engine, the two operating handle plates should be placed in a neutral position.
4. Stir the melted paint and add new paint into a kettle.
- When the temperature reaches 180-200℃, thermoplastic paint gradually melts completely. The same time, lift the operation handle, and stir the paint in the clockwise direction.
- Add new paint when the tank temperature is 210℃. After the melting of new paint, add new thermoplastic paint until filling the kettle.
- Control the kettle temperature by adjusting the burner valve. The suitable temperature is about 180℃ in summer, 180-210℃ in winter.
- Adjust stirring speed by accelerating the speed of the diesel engines.
5. Pour out making paint from hot melt kettle.
Place the marking machine on the outlet of a kettle. Lift the handle of the discharge door upwards, and the paint flows into the marking machine through the discharge slot. After the marking machine filling up the coating, close the outlet.
6. Stop stirring and close the engine.
Return the engine throttle to the parking gear, and close engine. Pull the operating handle back to the neutral position, and stop stirring in the kettle.
- The temperature in the kettle should not exceed 220 °C.
- If the coating is agglomerated, disassemble it and put it in.
- The melting viscosity of the same paint should be as consistent as possible.
- Avoid heating the coating for a long time at higher temperatures, so as to prevent paint discoloration and cracking.
