MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 23, 2014--
Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling
equipment, today unveiled its new E-Flo® DC (Dual Control) electric
supply pump ideally suited for high pressure applications.
This new Graco E-Flo® DC pump features an energy efficient electric
brushless DC motor that stalls under pressure and changes speeds to
maintain constant fluid pressure, similar to a pneumatic air motor.
Ideal for high-pressure applications such as waterborne spraying or
moving high viscosity materials, the E-Flo DC Supply Pump is designed to
operate by maintaining either constant pressure or a constant flow rate.
It is five times more efficient than similarly sized pneumatic pumps,
resulting in significantly lower electric bills for the end user. In
addition, this electric pump operates quietly – more than 20 db quieter
than OSHA’s continuous sound threshold for an eight hour work day.
“The E-Flo DC Electric Supply Pump was designed specifically for high
pressure applications,” said Bill Heuer, Product Marketing Manager,
Industrial Products Division. “Because the brushless DC motor provides
precise control, it is able to deliver extremely consistent fluid
pressures and flow rates –resulting in more consistent finishes. Our
customers save money on their electric bill by using less energy.”
To protect the pumps from premature wear, the E-Flo line was developed
with an integrated runaway protection system that is standard on all
models. “With runaway protection, the E-Flo DC pump automatically shuts
off if the flow rate exceeds a targeted maximum value,” said Heuer.
“This safety mechanism not only prevents costly material loss, but also
reduces maintenance and increases product longevity.
"The E-Flo DC is the ideal solution for customers wishing to save money
and reduce noise in their facility,” said Heuer. “They have a small
footprint and are easy to operate and install, requiring only
single-phase 220 volt, 50/60 Hz power with no Variable Frequency Drive
