Graco introduces the ProMix® 2KS, a two-component electronic plural component proportioner that offers integrated color change capabilities for both automatic and manual applications. Designed to handle a wide range of materials, the ProMix 2KS is available in configurations that includes an EasyKey display and a Smart Fluid Panel. With this proportioner, the need for hand mixing is eliminated, resulting in more accurate mixing and material cost savings.
“This is a great new way to handle materials,” says Blake Erickson, worldwide product marketing manager, Industrial Products Division, Graco, Inc. “The ProMix 2KS gives the heavy lifting of the job to the product, not to the people, resulting in finishing applications that are highly reliable and accurate.”
As an electronic proportioner, the new ProMix 2KS includes other features that enhance its programming, safety and accuracy. Simple control modules allow for easy programming, giving the operators fast set ups and efficient process controls. Advanced Web interfaces provide system management and reporting. Safeguards such as the self-flushing component shorten clean-up and color-change time, making the time more productive in spraying. An electronic feedback system gives the operator critical process control and both tracks and reports efficient material usage.
