Glue Melting & Heating Tanks
Six standard sizes of large all-purpose melting tanks
are available for preparation and storage of animal or
flexible glue, paste, gums, plastic adhesives, etc. These
tanks are often used for replenishing a battery of small-bench
Inner tanks and covers are fabricated of stainless steel.
The housings are electrically welded mild steel. Glass
blanket or expanded mica is
used as thermal insulation to reduce heat loss. Contactors,
control transformers, etc., where required, are mounted
in gasketed enclosures. All covers supplied with tile
hand agitated units are one piece while the motor
agitated units are furnished with split-type covers .
. . all
with lift handles.
The famous Sta-Warm "Even Heat" multiple-circuit blank-type
element is uniformly applied to the entire bottom area of
and up the sidewalls to approximately 75% of thc wall
height. Thus heat is uniformly distributed at extremely
low watt density (approx. 3 watts per sq. in.) thereby
eliminating the danger of "hot spots" and still avoiding
the nuisance and expense of water, oil or other heat transfer
