Before cleaning remove adhesive from melting tank, pipes and application systems. Technomelt PUR Cleaner ME should be added to the tank at a level to cover all parts to be cleaned. According to the degree of dirtiness, a cleaning time of one or more hours is necessary. A cleaning time of more than 8 hours should not be exceeded. It is advisable to cover open tanks during the cleaning process.
On applications with a pump system, a better cleaning effect is achieved when the cleaning agent is regularly circulating after the soaking period. Heavy build-up in the adhesive tank should be scraped off to allow the cleaning agent to penetrate into deeper deposits. Parts not covered with the cleaning agent can be brushed several times with the heated cleaning agent. If necessary, heavily charred sediments may need to be mechanically removed and the tanks rinsed again with the cleaning agent.
At the end of the cleaning procedure, all tanks, pumps and hoses need to be flushed thoroughly to remove loose sedimentation. Equipment with filters will have to be rechecked and flushed again if required. To avoid contamination of fresh adhesive before using the system, it should be flushed with adhesive.
