*** For Immediate Release ***
Lakewood, WA – Specialty Products, Inc. (SPI) has released a new version of their groundbreaking low pressure proportioner machine, the LPG.
Since the introduction of the LPG to the market in 2009, progressive advancements have included various mechanical improvements along with the new/current case enclosure. This most recent upgrade has been the installment of higher output pumps on all new LPGs. The original LPGs had a maximum output of .75 gpm. The newly released version has a maximum output of 1.2 gpm. These higher output pumps can be easily added onto existing machines with the original .75 pumps in about 15 minutes.
There are custom pump options available for specific application needs, as well. SPI also offers a very low output LPG pump, with a flow output of .25 gpm, for spraying slow set polyureas and overhead and on vertical surfaces. Alternatively, there are 2.4 gpm pumps that can be installed for high output pour foam or polyurea applications.
Specialty Products, Inc. (SPI) developed the LPG machine almost a decade ago; the purpose was to offer a simple to operate, easy to maintain proportioner that could tackle small to medium applications – yet still possible for one person to maneuver. Originally developed for the US government to provide the troops a lightweight and portable machine to take into war zones to up-armor buildings and vehicles, the LPG continues to be used in increasing applications in the commercial coating and foam marketplace. Weighing just 76lbs, the LPG applies products such as polyurethane spray foam insulation, pour foam for decommissioning of tanks and pipelines, hydrophobic foam to raise concrete slabs, spraying of polyurea coatings onto a variety of substrates, pouring polyurea for concrete control joints, concrete resurfacing polymers and the application of polyaspartics.
Chas Weatherford, SPI’s Vice President, states, “The larger pumps for increased output result in labor savings when compared to the original .75 gpm pumps. Additionally, with the higher output capability, the SPI Lock and Load gun still allows the applicator to simply adjust the output from zero to where ever they’d like, depending on their application, with the adjustable flow control dial.”
