There are some easy steps to take regarding the glue melters on the packaging lines.
Post a laminated parts list at the glue melter containing:
- The name of the Packaging Line.
- The Glue Melter Model and Part No.
- How many hoses and the lengths of each hose
- How many applicator heads and their part numbers
- Which nozzle tips fit on which applicator heads
- The solenoid valve part numbers
- Which angle inline filter fittings correlate with which heads
- What mesh size is used in the inline filter fittings
- Part number of the tank/manifold filter
- Part numbers of the RTDs or thermostats and Cartridge Heaters used in the applicator heads.
- If you have a pattern controller, the make and model number.
- Recommended stock.
- Person's Name to contact at the plant.
- Emergency phone number/email address of the parts vendor (that would be us, hopefully)
