C.M. Morris Group is finding success with Graco's new ToughTek F800e® fireproofing pump at the Cosmos building, a concert venue as well as retail and office space in Madison, Wisconsin.
At first, the C.M. Morris team faced challenges with the weather and fluctuating temperature. Due to the recent extremely cold winter, the contractor’s timeline for fireproofing and other trades was delayed until spring. Site location was also a challenge, as the high-rise building in downtown Madison didn’t have a lot of room around the building for storing a large, tow-behind pump.
C.M. Morris Group chose the portable, electric ToughTek F800e piston pump because of its compact size, which makes it easy to transport through a standard door, and ability to plug it in to any standard 220V, 30 Amp outlet. Also, the ToughTek F800e can remain inside, heated and winterized throughout the project, saving time and money caused by the typical winterizing process.
Pound for pound, Graco’s F800e is beating the competition in production, size and weight. Typical mid-tier pumps on the market can spray a maximum of 140 bags a day (based on an 8-hour spray day at roughly 20 bags per hour) with pump in and pump out. The F800e can spray upwards of 200 bags in that same work day (or 35-40 bags per hour) depending on the sprayer used.
