     Graco Introduces Pulse FC Fluid Control System

    Control every ounce of fluid in your shop or dealership to drive profitability and efficiency 


    MINNEAPOLIS (May 01, 2019) – Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, is excited to announce the launch of the Pulse® FC Fluid Control system, an innovative wire-free fluid control solution for vehicle service. The Pulse FC system’s new architecture for controlling fluids provides service operations with accuracy and control to automate and regulate fluid dispenses for optimal accountability and profitability. With the launch of the Pulse FC system, Graco has also rebranded the recently-launched fluid management solution, Pulse Pro. Together, these two solutions create the Pulse Fluid Management family. 


    “Graco has developed an innovative approach to managing every drop of fluid in a shop, and we've enhanced the experience with our new authorization cards,” said Joshua Holmstadt, Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division Global Product Manager. “With the Pulse FC system, once a card is programmed with the correct fluid and amount, it can be handed to any technician to complete the dispense when needed, ensuring accuracy.” 

    “Fluid control is very important in a shop like this,” said Joe P., service manager at Main Motor in Anoka, MN. With an average vehicle taking about six quarts of oil, Main Motor is dispensing over 150,000 quarts of oil a year. “In the past, month after month we were seeing a $600 loss, an $800 loss… Fluid wasn’t getting billed out like it should. Now with the Pulse FC system, the parts department bills out how many quarts of oil they need. I don’t have a loss anymore.”  


    The Pulse FC system utilizes the new robust and ergonomically-enhanced SD Series™ preset meters with a maximum flow of eight or 18 gpm (30 or 68 lpm). With a simple Pulse FC system starter kit, users can easily convert their SD preset meters to Pulse FC and gain additional control of their fluids. The Pulse FC system’s software allows for simple reporting, arming users with the analysis needed to make more informed decisions about scheduling, inventory, pricing and more. This provides transparency from the service bay to the back office, allowing decision-makers to know what’s happening.  


    Pulse fluid mangement applications extend beyond the automobile industry. Opportunities abound for other industries including mining, fleet services, trucking, heavy construction, oil and more. For more information or to contact a Graco distributor, visit www.gracopulse.com.

  • Fluid Management Improves Efficiencies in Fleet Vehicle Service Applications

    Effectively manage bulk inventory and reduce shop costs

    By Paul Treml, Sales Manager at Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division

    Fluid management is critical to keeping costs low in vehicle service applications, as it tracks the dispense of oils, coolant, anti-freeze and other fluids. Effective fluid management in fleet vehicles, automotive, heavy truck and heavy equipment service can reduce costs and improve operational efficiencies while generating helpful data about dispense history. Complete engineered systems effectively deliver these benefits, as components are designed to work together to deliver the most accurate data possible.

    Why choose fluid management?

    Effective fluid management systems allow fleet vehicle service shops to control expenses by effectively managing their inventory of fluids such as oils, gear lube, coolant and anti-freeze. One benefit offered by fluid management systems is that metering can ensure the dispense of precise volumes, avoiding costly mistakes. With this added control, facilities are able to capture additional savings by purchasing fluids in bulk. With an increasing number of vehicles on the road today requiring expensive synthetic oils rather than conventional ones, precise dispense and inventory management is key to keeping costs down.

    With the large volume of fluid being stored and dispensed, inventory accuracy and shop efficiencies are critical for expense management. Effective fluid management systems provide parts managers with the information necessary to order enough fluid at the right time. With inventory available, technicians have less downtime and are able to service more vehicles. In the same way, fluid management systems can track volumes of used or wasted fluids, ensuring that disposal is timely to avoid the hassle of full waste containers.

    Another critical reason for implementing a high-quality fluid management system is the ability to recall transaction data. The detailed dispense history provided can help shop managers in visualizing production and discovering patterns or workflow roadblocks in order to improve efficiency. Additionally, having fluid dispense history can provide an audit trail showing the date, time, type of fluid and how much fluid was dispensed for a particular vehicle, confirming that the correct oil was used or the proper volume replaced.

    In short, fluid management systems deliver a range of benefits to fleet vehicle service shops, including increased inventory control, greater dispense precision, improved operational efficiency and detailed dispense history.

    Cost savings and improved efficiency

    Well-designed systems can answer the “five Ws” for every dispense job: who performed the dispense, what specific fluid was dispensed, where in the facility this dispense took place, when it occurred, why (i.e., which work order and customer record the dispense was tied to) and even how much fluid was dispensed.

    The complete picture offered by top-quality fluid management systems gives insight into how to improve shop efficiencies, and with this kind of comprehensive data you can make smart business decisions about inventory and processes. In combination, the data, system efficiency and precision dispensing make fluid management critical to managing costs and ensuring success in fleet and municipality vehicle service applications.
