Platen Options for 55 Gallon Hot Melt Drum Unloader

Let's start off with what a platen is. A platen for a 55 gallon drum unloader is the mechanism that presses down on the drum and melts the adhesive for dispensing. There are two types of platens available for the this drum unloader that will affect melt speed and ease-of-cleaning. 

Flat Platen for Drum Melter

A flat platen is, well, flat. It makes cleaning the machine after using much easier but provides a lower melt rate of 130 LBS (60 KG) per hour. Great for low to mid volume applications that are looking to cut down on cleaning time. 

Fin Platen for Drum Melter

A fin platen offers a ribbed surface and a much higher melt rate of 285 LBS per hour (130 KG) which is great for higher volume applications. But, those ridges are harder to clean making maintenance a little more time consuming.
