Advantages of the Thermo Melter Skid

The melter skid is a portable thermoplastic melting solution. You can connect the skid to any vehicle or apparatus to apply thermoplastic markings to surfaces.


The skid melts up to 2,000 lbs of thermoplastic with a 20-minute recovery time. The conveyor loading system reduces worker fatigue by allowing you to load thermoplastic material at waist height.


The thermoplastic is melted using a 800,000 BTU diesel-fired burner that can be controlled via our Control Panel. The Control Panel also controls temperature, RPM’s, the thermo pump and more.


This unit is ideal for filling a smaller capacity thermoplastic applicator when the cycle time is about 20 minutes between refill operations.


The Hog Skid will take the place of multiple conventional melters with no waiting to heat material.
