Software and hardware advances to improve application accuracy and data tracking lead the list of upgrades in Graco Inc.'s new Reactor 2.

The plural-component sprayer for polyurethane foam and polyurea now features innovative data reporting technologies to help owners track and record jobsite activity and spraying parameters, the Minneapolis, MN-based company says.

The Reactor 2 has an advanced motor control module and software designed to produce smooth, consistent results.

The first Reactor product was released 10 years ago; the latest model was developed in response to customer feedback, according to Tryg Waterhouse, product marketing manager, Graco Applied Fluid Technologies Division. 

Customer-Inspired Features

According to Graco, the customer-driven changes include:

  • A 40 percent smaller footprint than a standard Graco Reactor for more room in the spray rig;
  • The relocation of electronics for easier service; and
  • An advanced motor control module and software that produces a smoother, more consistent spray performance.

The Advanced Display Module features data download, chemical recipe storage, drum level indicators and on-screen troubleshooting, Graco notes.

Graco waterproofing

The unit can be used for spray foam insulation and polyurea waterproofing.

The Reactor 2 Elite model comes with an inlet pressure and temperature sensor; Xtreme-Wrap Scuff Guard on heated hoses for Reactor 2 packages; and Graco InSite.

Graco InSite is a remote reporting technology that enables owners of spray-foam businesses to see real-time jobsite data via smart phone, tablet or computer. 

The product comes in electric stand-alone models and integrated systems.
