Graco’s heated hoses are designed specifically for use with Reactor Equipment. Hoses are a key component to the total system, making it important to achieve accurate and uniform heating for the best application possible.
For Reactor proportioners.
New multi-strand copper heating element has greatly increased hose quality:
Provides 10-times* the flex life compared to previous flat copper heating element
Long-term, even heating without hot spots
Backwards compatible with existing Reactor heated hoses
New Xtreme-Wrap Scuff Guard
Form fitting to the hose, no more baggy excess material
Made from urethane coated ballistic nylon for puncture and tear resistance, abrasion protection, and oil and water resistance
Sheds surface moisture and won't absorb water to weigh down the hose bundle; will not freeze solid in cold temperatures
Hook and Loop enclosure used on the entire length of the hose for easy access to the hoses, fittings, and fluid temperature sensors
Copper-heated hoses are designed specifically for use with Graco proportioners
Joint Protectors provide additional protection at the most vulnerable section of the hose: the electrical connections, hose fittings, and fluid temperature sensors. All 50 ft (15 m) hoses with the new Xtreme-Wrap will come with one Joint Protector.
Hoses are covered with foam insulation for heat retention
Covered with proprietary butyl cover for protection against moisture sensitive isocyanate
Different fitting sizes on the isocyanate and resin hoses prevent accidentally connecting the wrong hoses together
Hoses use custom designed splice kit to electrically connect hoses without having to run copper under the fittings
Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD)
Graco’s latest advanced controls on Reactor 2 and Integrated Reactor utilize RTD technology. RTDs offer the highest accuracy and the best day-to-day repeatability of material temperatures in your hose. RTD technology allows the machine to automatically shut down if the sensor is damaged, which saves wasted time and materials.
Helix-design whip hose uses braided copper wires for added flexibility and longer life
