Why it's important to use genuine Graco-manufactured heated hoses
Did you know that mixing Graco hoses with knock-off hoses can be a big risk? Here's why.
Reactor machine controls communicate with the fluid temperature sensors (FTS) inside the hose. This provides the proper electrical power to accurately and safely heat the hose. If you are using two types of hoses, depending on the hose into which the FTS is placed, you may have a very large difference in temperature between hoses – potentially putting your equipment at risk for damage and creating a possible safety issue for your crew.
Graco Reactor heated hoses are wrapped with a copper heating element at a precise pitch for accurate, uniform heating. Because knock-off hoses may not heat in the same way, you risk over- or under-heating your hoses.
Reactor heated hose offers features that help maintain proper fluid temperatures while you're spraying – ultimately giving you better material yield and performance. Learn more
