) recently introduced the ProMix PD2K - a new displacement
proportioner that mixes materials closer to the gun so the flush
zone is significantly smaller. The ProMix PD2K Proportioner was
developed using 100% positive displacement technology and is
suitable for accurate mix ratios and consistent pump performance.
Additionally, it can be equipped with either two or four dosing
pumps and can manage up to 30 colors and four catalysts.
By moving the mixing point closer to the gun, ProMix PD2K can
reduce solvent use and mixed material waste by approximately 80%
and is much more competitive in comparison to other traditional
electronic proportioners. With this unique positive displacement,
the user can get consistent spray pressure and superior mix
With easy maintenance, this proportioner handles various inbound
pressures without fine-tuning and does not require factory
rebuilds and can be serviced in the field in less than 20
minutes. This new technology lowers the disposal costs of
hazardous waste materials and helps in minimizing material
wastage. With greater spray flexibility, this new technology also
saves time and money of the user.
