) recently launched its new E-Flo DC (Dual Control) line of high
performance industrial pumps for paint finishing applications.
The E-Flo DC pump include Basic and Advanced models. The Basic
model offers local control of the pump with flexible pump
settings. The Advanced Model provides additional control of pump
performance by managing several pumps from a single source.
The new E-Flo DC is equipped with combined features of pneumatic
and electric circulation pumps and can operate in two different
ways with constant pressure rate like a pneumatic motor or
constant flow rate like an electric driven motor.
These industrial pumps are five times more efficient than similar
pumps available in the market with the advantages of a more
efficient electric motor, which reduces the electric bills for
the user, delivers higher energy efficiency and drives down the
overall cost of operation. Additionally, the runaway protection
helps in automatic operation of the pump with immediate switching
off when there is no supply of material, thereby preventing
expensive loss of materials.
The E-Flo DC pumps are easy to install and emit less noise. These
pumps offer a lucrative opportunity for a replacement pump for
customers who are looking to upgrade their existing paint
circulation systems. Moving forward, Graco expects to
continuously invest in its businesses to diversify and expand its
