Dow Foam Dispensing Tool “Eliminates” Installation Woes with Customizable Solutions

Midland, Michigan - April 27, 2016 -

Dow Polyurethanes is helping manufacturers increase production of high-performance polyurethane doors while keeping investments low. As demand for new energy and cost-efficient doors increases, Dow is showcasing how the one-of-a-kind DELTA THERM™ Eliminator Dispensing Gun can provide cost effective solutions at IDAExpo 2016, April 27-30, 2016 in Las Vegas.

Compact and lightweight, the Eliminator enables the most accurate and reliable metering, mixing and dispensing equipment to produce a superior rigid polyurethane foam.

“Manufacturers already know that polyurethane foam is one of the best insulation materials available to help achieve energy efficiency targets,” said Robert York, market manager for Dow Polyurethanes. “Installation, however, can be tricky without the right tools. The DELTA THERM Eliminator Gun helps reduce the investment risk while enabling an easy installation process and expert service and training.”

How It Works

The Eliminator is a tool that uses an impingement mixing technology in which the “A” and “B” polyurethane components are automatically mixed and dispensed through the gun nozzle. The self-cleaning shut-off mechanism eliminates the need for hazardous solvents or hot water flushing. This results in no hazardous waste handling or disposal problems. The Eliminator has 6 pound – 80 pound throughput ability.

The unique features of the DELTA THERM Eliminator Dispensing Gun provide a number of key benefits for manufacturers, including:

  • Low cost equipment is available to customers through an authorized lease agreement.
  • Ease of use enabled by removing the complexity of traditional foam dispensing equipment.
  • Externally adjustable flow controllers allow the chemical flow rate to be set through in-line flow controllers that are easily adjustable, enabling quicker and cleaner adjustments to achieve desired chemical foam ratios.
  • Internally heated hoses allow the components to be heated quickly and evenly with an auto shut-off to avoid overheating.
  • Multi-shot timer enables users to program sequences for timed shots for added convenience.
  • Ratio monitoring enables data from the “A” and “B” components to be monitored and data can be downloaded to better calculate usage of VOC-emitting products for reporting purposes.
  • Customizable solutions means customers have a wide range of froth systems available from Dow for use in different applications.
  • Customer service from Dow provides training and assistance in testing, operation, maintenance and repairs, as well as piping/system layout to customers.

“Combining outstanding technical service and chemistry performance all wrapped into an improved equipment option means our customers have access to the best resources, expertise and products that lead to success,” said York.

DELTA THERM Eliminator Dispensing Gun can be used in a number of applications, including commercial refrigeration units, insulated transportation, insulated panels and doors and marine floatation.
