H.B. Fuller, a leading global provider of specialty adhesives and sealants, faced a sticky situation when their Italian chiller broke down.
The chiller required a part which was only available in Italy and had a three month wait time.
The chiller is a vital part of the manufacturing process.
Hot packing glue comes out of the machinery and into a buffer tank which must be kept at a constant 7 degrees. Any temperature variations would render the glue unusable and stopping production was not an option.
But after a quick call to Active Air Rentals a solution was in place that kept production going and the buffer tank at the perfect temperature.
A temporary 220kW chiller was put in place, then working together with the F.B Fuller team the chiller was connected to the existing system.
