It didn’t take spray foam contractors long to quickly come to appreciate the many benefits of adding one or more models from the Graco Reactor 2 series to their job sites.
The Reactor 2 line offers both software and hardware advancement as compared to previous generations of proportioners. This takes the already strong foundation of a Graco machine and takes it to the next level with a host of appealing extras and upgrades.
Each aspect of the Reactor 2 line was developed with the needs of industry professionals in mind, and every feature is designed to help contractors work productively and efficiently. The Graco research and development team invested considerable time carefully planning each detail, and strategically combining all of the individual parts into the best possible package.
The company realized that it was important for contractors to have a way to stay on top of developments at their job sites, even if they couldn’t actually be physically present at the job site at that particular moment. That’s why Graco InSite is among the most popular features of these machines. This technology is a convenient way for you to monitor your equipment from any offsite location in real time. You can access and track data related to your Graco reactors easily from your tablet, phone or computer. Whether you have one Graco machine or several, you can get accurate, up-to-date stats about the equipment and the job specifics.
At the click of a button, you can see the current status of a job, learn activity start and stop times, and even identify the exact location of a machine using GPS capability. This allows contractors to better manage their employees, and to monitor material usage and inventory. Graco InSite comes as a standard feature for Reactor 2 Elite models, or can be purchased as an accessory kit for a number of other models.
The Reactor 2 models were also designed for ultimate convenience. They have a smaller footprint—up to 40% smaller than traditional models—which makes them easier to transport and store. This lets you free up extra space in your mobile spray rigs so you can accommodate additional equipment. They also have an ergonomic design, and are easier to service. Maintenance is also much more efficient thanks to the handy QR codes which make diagnostics and troubleshooting much more simple. You simply need to scan the QR code with your smart phone or similar device, and you can quickly determine the issue and the best way to solve it.
Another popular high-tech feature of these machines is the ability to store recipes. You can store up to two dozen recipes, which ensures consistent and accurate material mixtures, and eliminates the chance of human error.
The models in this series also come outfitted with advanced circuit boards, which can handle power fluctuations and minimizes pressure fluctuations, which results in smooth, consistent spray performance, such as that you would find with hydraulic machines. The ability to withstand power spikes and surges can give you important added peace of mind. And just as an extra backup, these machines also have a sacrificial surge protector, which will absorb the blow of an excessive spike, meaning you will only need to worry about replacing a smaller and less costly part. The maintenance-free brushless electric motor improves control and performance, and increases the odds of a longer lifespan.
There is also a wide assortment of other Graco Reactor models, including some basic, affordable models that make for great entry-level options. No matter which model you may select, you can always count of getting the high standards of quality for which the company is well known.
