Graco has been a leader in the spray foam industry by producing equipment that continually beats out the competition. By staying at the cutting edge of industry trends and incorporating user feedback, each new series of Graco spray foam equipment is an improvement from the previous generation.

Though the Reactor 2 series has been incredibly successful for its longevity, user-friendliness, and quality, Graco has still found a way to fine-tune its features and create a sleek new line of Reactor 3 spray foam proportioners. The Graco Reactor 3 series currently includes four electric models:

Each Reactor 3 spray foam proportioner is available in standard, pro, and elite versions to be flexible in meeting contractor needs and budgets. It is also easier than ever to upgrade a Reactor 3's capabilities from standard to pro or elite when your job specifications change. Is this new system right for you? What is different and what can you expect from Graco Reactor 3 spray foam proportioners?

What Has Changed?

Though each Graco polyurea proportioner slightly differs in specifications like maximum hose length, pressure, and more, here are some of the improvements in each Reactor 3 proportioner and its supporting equipment:

  • Auto Pressure Balancing
    • Smart Control
    • Smart Supply
    • Supply Pump Shutdown
    • Cellular software updates
    • Power Management
    • Resistance Control Mode
  • New Xcelerator internally heated hoses in which A and B hoses are independently temperature controlled to optimize spray patterns and maximize yields. This hose system heats up 40% faster and weighs 10% less than previous models.
  • Updated Core Electric Transfer Pumps that communicate directly with the polyurea proportioner to optimize mixing and reduce downtime. It also runs more quietly than the typical air-driven pumps on the market.
  • Connectivity to Reactor Connect, Graco's premier remote control and data reporting app. Never be in the dark about what is going on with your rigs again!
  • Reactor Katalyst ensures that you stay on-ratio ? and much more. Katalyst's robust new capabilities allow the core electric transfer pumps to seamlessly communicate with your spray foam machine. This makes sure you have the optimal mix of iso and resin throughout every job for maximum performance and results.
  • More compact dimensions with a smaller footprint make the Reactor easier to fit in your rig.

These improvements work together to address the most significant needs contractors have with spraying foam. By taking feedback from professional spray foam users seriously, both small adjustments and new additions work together to improve the user experience.
