“Graco has developed an innovative approach to managing every drop of
fluid in a shop, and we've enhanced the experience with our new
authorization cards,” said Joshua Holmstadt, Graco’s Lubrication
Equipment Division Global Product Manager. “With the Pulse FC system,
once a card is programmed with the correct fluid and amount, it can be
handed to any technician to complete the dispense when needed, ensuring
“Fluid control is very important in a shop like this,” said Joe P.,
service manager at Main Motor in Anoka, MN. With an average vehicle
taking about six quarts of oil, Main Motor is dispensing over 150,000
quarts of oil a year. “In the past, month after month we were seeing a
$600 loss, an $800 loss… Fluid wasn’t getting billed out like it should.
Now with the Pulse FC system, the parts department bills out how many
quarts of oil they need. I don’t have a loss anymore.”
The Pulse FC system utilizes the new robust and ergonomically-enhanced
SD Series™ preset meters with maximum flow of eight or 18 gpm (30 or 68
lpm). With a simple Pulse FC system starter kit, users can easily
convert their SD preset meters to Pulse FC and gain additional control
of their fluids. The Pulse FC system’s software allows for simple
reporting, arming users with the analysis needed to make more informed
decisions about scheduling, inventory, pricing and more. This provides
transparency from the service bay to the back office, allowing decision
makers to know what’s happening.
Pulse fluid management applications extend beyond the automobile
industry. Opportunities abound for other industries including mining,
fleet services, trucking, heavy construction, oil and more. For more
