Which Graco Spray Machine Should You Buy for 2023?

By Kevin Malone

As you start your planning for 2023, you will want to evaluate all of your equipment to make sure you have what you need. This includes replacing worn-out equipment or adding new machines to your inventory so you expand your capabilities.

When it comes to spray machines, Graco is a clear choice. Experienced contractors know that Graco spray machines are solid investments that will provide consistent, reliable performance for years to come. Graco features durable, long-lasting products that maximize productivity and provide a superior experience. They also come with an industry-leading equipment warranty.

So, which Graco spray machine should you buy in 2023? Here are some of the most popular options for spray foam machines and spray foam guns.

Graco Spray Foam Machines

Which type of Graco spray machine is best for your use will depend mainly on the type of jobs you do.

Graco E-20 Reactor

If you are primarily working on small or medium residential jobs, consider air-driven Graco spray machines such as the Reactor E-20. Designed for low to medium-output foam insulation applications, the Reactor E-20 applies up to 20 pounds per minute. Features include:

  • Hybrid heaters for temperature control
  • Circulation valves with long-lasting seals
  • Modular control boards to minimize downtime
  • No tapping hose heat transformers
  • Quick knockdown lower pumps
  • Digital heat and pressure controls

Graco E-30 Reactor

The Reactor E-30 spray foam proportioner system is a mid-production reactor designed for small to mid-sized commercial jobs. It features a compact footprint and better spray performance than traditional electric Reactor systems. Features include:

  • Advanced control technology to track, monitor, and save project data
  • Stores up to 24 chemical recipes
  • QR code shortcuts for easy troubleshooting
  • Optimized spray parameters to improve productivity
  • Reactor control using your phone

There are other Reactor models available with different enhancements and hydraulic spray rigs to complement any job. Connect with an Intech Equipment sales team member to find the right solution for your job.

Spray Foam Guns

You will also want the right spray foam gun for your application. There are three different types of Graco spray foam insulation guns you may want to consider:

  1. Air Purge Guns
  2. Liquid Purge Guns
  3. Mechanical Purge Guns

Air Purge Guns

When the trigger is released, compressed air flows through the gun and blows out any residual chemicals from the mix chamber. Models include:

  • Graco Fusion ProConnect: Features an all-in-one cartridge. Replacing the cartridge eliminated time-consuming rebuilds to minimize downtime, accommodating spray foam and polyurea applications.
  • Graco Fusion Air Purge: Graco’s most popular plural-component spray gun can handle both polyurea and polyurethane foam.
  • Graco Probler P2: Features a double piston design with more than 300 pounds of triggering force.

Liquid Purge Guns

When the trigger on a liquid purge gun is released, fluid is dosed into the mix chamber, preventing any residual chemicals from reacting until there is a subsequent trigger pull. The Fusion ClearShot virtually eliminates drilling of the mix chamber, resulting in increased spray time and reduced maintenance.

Built for foam or polyurea applications, the liquid purge gun reduces purged air by 75% to minimize foam blowback. Ten settings provide variable flow, allowing you to switch between small and large spray patterns in seconds.

Mechanical Purge Guns

Upon trigger release, a mechanical rod actuates the chamber, pushing chemicals out the tip. Model include:

  • Graco Fusion Mechanical Purge: A durable design features excellent mix and material properties for great results.
  • Graco GX-7: Features dependability and pattern control even in challenging conditions. The GX-7 is the gun of choice for roofing and slab jack applications.
  • Graco GX-8: Designed for low-output polyurea applications, the GX-8 works solvent-free and is mechanically self-cleaning.
