MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, today formally introduced new King Airless Sprayers at The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) annual conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. SSPC is among the few industry providers focused on technical training for coatings industry professionals.
Graco’s King brand is recognized all over the world, and Graco stands behind the quality associated with it. The new King airless sprayers, even with today’s more difficult coatings and demanding applications, exceed the performance of King products introduced decades ago in pressure, flow and icing performance.
“We listened to our customers and King sprayers are the result: fully loaded and ready to tackle the toughest jobs operators face,” said Eric Rennerfeldt, Product & Business Development Manager, Graco Applied Fluid Technologies Division. “Because our customers have better things to do, King sprayers are easy to maintain and deliver best-in-class icing performance, resulting in a superior experience.”
King sprayers feature a trusted XL motor that provides sharp, smooth changeovers and low pulsation – even while multiple guns are operating – for improved performance.
Thermally-isolated poppets on the XL 3400 and XL 6500 motors are insulated from motor castings that can often drop below freezing. The newly-designed poppets and external pilot lines virtually eliminate pilot valve freezing that can result in an instant stop.
Packings play a critical role in optimizing spray performance by sealing pressure and holding material inside the pump. King sprayers feature tighter seals with enhanced edge loading and seven throat packings instead of five to deliver better performance. The cart features a conveniently-mounted toolbox so day-to-day essential tools and parts are easily accessible, and a removable cover enables easy valve maintenance.
