Graco Introduces New ToughTek Fireproofing Pumps
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – January 13, 2015 – Graco Inc., a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, recently introduced ToughTek™ Fireproofing Pumps for low, medium, and high-density spray-applied fire resistive materials (SFRMs). Compact and portable, ToughTek Pumps use piston pump technology capable of applying cementitious fireproofing materials through industry-leading long hose lengths and delivering them with a smooth, steady flow.

"Because of their durability and high-pressure piston pump design, ToughTek pumps allow fireproofing contractors to spend more time spraying and less time moving equipment around the job site," said John Lihwa, Graco product manager. "In addition, our compact design and small footprint make it easy to spray in tight areas," Lihwa said.

ToughTek Pumps are easy to set up, easy to use, and require minimal maintenance. They offer variable speed controls so a contractor can dial in the exact flow rate needed, from low to high volume output. Utilizing proprietary Graco technologies, the piston pumps stand up to abrasive fireproofing materials to minimize maintenance downtime and reduce wear. ToughTek Fireproofing Pumps are available in two models. The compact ToughTek F340e Portable Fireproofing Pump plugs into a standard wall outlet, fits in an elevator, supports hose lengths of more than 100 feet, comes with a 20-gallon hopper, and offers outputs up to 20 bags per hour. The mid-size ToughTek F680e operates on 230V power, supports hose lengths of more than 300 feet, comes with a 30-gallon hopper, and offers output volumes up to 30 bags per hour.

Graco® ToughTek Fireproofing Pumps are ideal for cementitious fireproofing projects in commercial and industrial construction, onshore oil and gas, and chemical processing facilities. For more information, visit or email
