 MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 9, 2019-- Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, has launched the Sealed 4-Ball Plus Lower.

“Pumping at lower speeds means less wear and tear on pumps and more maintenance-free operation of factory paint circulation systems,” said Blake Erickson, Graco Product Marketing Manager for the Industrial Products Division.

Available in 2500 cc, 3000 cc and 4000 cc displacements, the Sealed 4-Ball Plus Lower fits with existing or new electric, hydraulic and pneumatic pump assemblies by Graco. “Two 2500 cc lowers can be installed together in an electric E-Flo DC pump to make a 5000 cc system that can put out up to 26 gallons of material per minute,” explained Erickson.

The new pump lowers exceeded expectations at field test sites, which included high-volume production facilities. “The new pump is awesome,” concluded the maintenance manager of one factory. “No throat seal liquid (TSL) is needed. There are no packings to torque. It is truly routine maintenance-free.”

The Sealed 4-Ball Plus Lower’s unique design builds on success from Graco’s mid-range Sealed 4-Ball Lower, released in 2016. Both models have long maintenance cycles and do not require TSL. Common components make them easy to maintain and reduce inventory levels on repair parts. “In everything we do, we strive for a long service life and long-term durability,” said Erickson.
