Data reporting technology that helps contractors ensure accurate, on-ratio application of fire-protective coatings is the key to Graco's new XM PFP Plural-Component Sprayer.

"When it comes to protecting structural steel from high-temperature hydrocarbon fires, it is essential that passive fire protection (PFP) materials are applied properly and on-ratio," Graco notes.

The Graco XM, built specifically for epoxy intumescent coatings, provides the data that helps the applicator confirm that coatings are sprayed on-ratio, at parameters set by the material manufacturer.

Graco's XM PFP Plural-Component Sprayer will automatically shut down if off-ratio conditions occur during application of epoxy intumescent materials.

"Ratio checking for epoxy intumescents is important and, often times, documentation is required," said Graco's Eric Rennerfeldt, Product Marketing Manager, Protective Coatings Equipment.

"With the system's control technology and USB port, the mix ratio data is available for download, as well as other historical spraying data including fluid temperatures, spray pressure and total flow output. The system will also automatically shut down if off-ratio conditions occur."

Rennerfeldt says the unit is easy to use and designed with "high-performance heaters and temperature controls to spray the toughest epoxy intumescent materials."

A Graco video shows the equipment in use, and animation provides an overview of the design.

Graco's Applied Fluid Technologies Division designs, manufactures and markets fluid handling equipment for sealants, adhesives, resins, protective coatings and polyurethanes.
