Abstract

See full text

An applicator device applies at least one liquid to a first side of a flexible web, such as a web of carpet material. A pair of application stations each comprises at least a pair of parallel rollers each driven by a roller motor arrangement. A platen directs the web between the rollers. Two dams are each laterally adjustable with respect to a top roller and conform to the shape of the top roller at a forward end thereof. Each of the dams, the top roller, and the web define a puddle area to which one of the at least one liquid is applied for application to the web as the web moves between the pair of rollers. A rigid frame fixes a first application station in a substantially horizontal orientation, and a second of the application stations in a substantially vertical orientation, with a turning roller situated therebetween.
