Graco Launches Fluid Defender®, Designed for Added Protection of Bulk Fluids
Providing Precise Control to Prevent Overfill and Pump Runaway on Bulk Tanks
Graco Inc., a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, today announced the launch of Fluid Defender. This innovative product establishes a new level of control and monitoring of bulk fluids in vehicle service shops, automotive dealerships, quick lubes, agriculture dealerships and more.
“With increasing government regulations and costs, it is critical for any organization with bulk fluid tanks to closely monitor and control them more than ever before,” said Tyler Salminen, Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division global product marketing manager. “Graco strives to continue driving innovation, technology and connectivity in the vehicle services space, and Fluid Defender is a key addition to our product portfolio that allows us to be a one-stop shop for all fluid management solutions.”
The Fluid Defender features visual and audible alarms at the box and is available in two variations, including one that connects to Graco’s industry-leading Pulse® Pro fluid management system. If integrated with the Pulse system, text and email alerts can also be activated, helping to warn management of possible issues after hours and minimize potential hazards.
Graco has also designed robust floats that are compatible with motor oil, waste oil, ATF, antifreeze, diesel and windshield wash fluid. For use in tanks up to 30 ft in height, users can choose single float options to monitor high or low fluid in a tank, or dual float options which allow monitoring of both high and low fluid while utilizing only one channel.
Additional accessories, like remote lights and air control solenoids, are available to provide visible notifications in locations away from the control box and to prevent pump runaway. This new fluid management product from Graco provides more control of fluids than ever before. For more information, visit graco.com/fluid-defender.
