The environmentally-friendly alternative to hotpotting
An inherent disadvantage of hotpotting is that it requires large amounts of clean-up solvent. Is it time to clean up your act?
If you are hotpotting, you know full well that your pressure pot, pump and feed containers need to be cleaned at least daily. Unfortunately, the cleaning solvents used may be hazardous to your health. How can you move to a system that is better for the health of both yourself and the planet?
The simple answer is to use a machine, such as a Graco XP/XM two-component system. You’ll use significantly less solvent, which reduces disposal costs. Why? Because there’s no need to thoroughly flush mixed material in your complete pump each day, as is the case with hotpotting. Moreover, you avoid having to flush several meters of hose containing mixed material, as you only flush the mixed material line.
You will also be able to apply more environmentally friendlier coatings (lower VOCs, higher VOS) to comply with regulations and reduce solvent waste.
Save money and reduce your environmental footprint by using less clean-up solvent. Contact us to discuss how a Graco two-component system is the environmentally-friendly alternative to hotpotting.
