Minimum and Maximum Heated Hose Length for Reactor Systems

The Effect on Performance

The length of the heated hose can influence the performance of your spray foam system. To ensure effective impingement mixing and spraying, you should take into account the minimum and maximum hose length of your Graco Reactor.

Hose length influences the mixing and spraying conditions of your system. The longer the hose, the higher its resistance and the lower the current it can carry. If the resistance becomes too high, the current flow will be too low to properly heat up the material, resulting in bad impingement mixing and spraying results.

Minimum Hose Length

The minimum hose length for Reactors is 50 ft (15 m). With a hose length below 50 ft, the mixing and flow regulation of the system will be difficult.


Maximum Hose Length

The maximum heated hose length for Reactor 2 E-30, E-30i, E-XP2, E-XP2i, H-30 and H-XP2 is 310 ft (94.5 m), including the whip hose.

The maximum heated hose length for Reactor 2 H-40, H-50 and H-XP3 is 400 ft (125 m), including the whip hose.

For more information, please refer to your Reactor manual.
