Protecting your Investment

Whether it is a $8 bottle of super glue or $75,000 labeling system, we recommend reading the below suggestions for extending the life of your product or asset!

Surge Protector

No matter where you work, bad weather, “brownouts” or power surges are inevitable.  Most consider a power strip sufficient, but in reality ALL equipment should be plugged into a surge protector.  This protects the main electrical components which are typically expensive to replace.

Adhesives or Labels

For temperature and moisture sensitive products consider the following:

  • Store unopened super glue bottles in a in freezer.  By slowing down the molecules, this will significantly increase shelf life.
  • Keep unopened MMA’s (methacrylates) cartridges in a refrigerator.  This will help extend their short shelf life.
  • Keep blank polypropylene and polyester label rolls in an office temperature controlled environment.  This will eliminate possible adhesive oozing that can release the labels from the liner.

Clean Air for Pneumatic Equipment

Water in air lines is unfortunately also very common!  It can easily be removed by using an aftermarket air purification or inline water separator system.

Maintenance or Repair

Priddy Sales offers several options for preventative maintenance or repair.  These services can be provided onsite or at our facility.  Call 800-275-0828 to discuss the best option with one of our trained technicians!

TEC 3400 Industrial Glue Gun

The ECO-friendly TEC 3400 all electric hot melt glue dispenser was designed as a replacement for the TEC 3200 tool. With 400 watts it can dispense up to 8.25 lbs. of 1 3/4″ (43mm) glue slugs per hour with no air compressor. It is a great lower cost alternative to the Loctite 175 or Henkel Loctite EQ HM22 glue guns!

What are some of the features?

  • The TEC 3400 includes 4 temperature modules ranging from 260 to 420 degrees F
  • Built-in trigger boost to detect when the trigger is pulled frequently, and then boosts power to the heater to meet this increased demand. This allows the
    adhesive to be always applied at the optimum temperature.
  • The micro-controller detects periods of non-use and progressively reduces the temperature of the tool until it is switched off after 2 hours. Simply pulling the trigger resets the tool, which quickly recovers to the set temperature. This feature saves energy, improves tool reliability and is an important safety feature in the work place.
  • The controller also detects various fault conditions and will indicate these with a rapidly flashing indicator. If this occurs the tool will shut down, preventing more serious damage, and ensuring user safety.
  • Standard precision nozzle included, also available
  • Detachable stand for additional portability
