Advantages of the Thermo Hog

The Thermo Hog’s Melting System has up to 100 times the heated surface of a conventional melter. This one-of-a-kind Thermo HOG Melter System provides for continuous melting of thermoplastic at 8,000 lbs. per hour (3,628 kg/hr) in one kettle. It is capable of melting 12,000 lbs. per hour (7,257 kg/hr) for two colors and split between the kettles! The heating source of the Thermo HOG Melting System never exceeds 500°F versus traditional melting which can reach up to 2,000°F due to heating the material with an open flame.

The Thermo Hog utilizes a single burner versus nine burners found on competitive thermo trucks on the market. The Thermo Hog also uses two kettles versus the traditional 4-6 kettles found on competitive trucks.

The material deck holds up to 2x the amount of material compared to a traditional truck (depending on configuration). The deck is also supplied with a conveyor belt system for loading thermoplastic at waist level to reduce back strain and worker fatigue.

The Thermo Hog comes with a programmable speed control system to tightly control the speed of the vehicle without disrupting the driveline. Our patent-pending HOG speed control system eliminates the need to constantly look back and forth between your speedometer and the crosshairs when laying down thermoplastic upon a line, drastically reducing or eliminating the margin for error.

The Thermo Hog boasts ultra-short start / shutdown times. There is no risk of charred or creating lava-like material. As the thermoplastic is melted evenly throughout our system and not subjected to temperatures greater than 500°F.

Our Thermo Hog Pump is built specifically to pump thermoplastic. It is 75% smaller and up to 371 lbs lighter than competitive pumps and long-lasting. The Thermo Hog Pump can be easily retrofitted onto almost any existing system and is simple to rebuild without ever removing it from the vehicle.Our pumps are tough and rugged with a 3-year minimum guaranteed lifespan. Comes with a one-year warranty on all spare parts.
