Graco Inc. (NYSE: GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, is pleased to announce the addition of the A4000 Reciprocating LubePro™ oil and grease pump to the LubePro series of automatic lubrication pumps. This larger-capacity, single-line parallel pump has the ability to fire hundreds of injectors at one time by using Graco's field-proven Merkur ® Air Motor, and its unique pump design allows for reduced venting times compared to the competition. The A4000 Reciprocating LubePro oil and grease pump is available in a variety of configurations to meet specific lubrication needs.

Improper lubrication of machinery can cause component failure and downtime, resulting in unplanned maintenance expenses and loss of production. LubePro series pumps offer a robust solution where high output and fast lubrication cycles are needed to optimally lubricate equipment while it's working, providing plant managers with the tools to keep up with production demands and reduce operating costs.

"With the launch of the A4000 Reciprocating LubePro pump, we now offer a full portfolio of single-line parallel solutions," said Andrew Gerlach, Graco's Industrial Lubrication Equipment Product Marketing Manager. "These pumps are manufactured in the U.S.A. and come with a factory-installed pressure gauge, adjustable pressure relief and integrated low-level detection to ensure speedy and accurate system calibration. Additionally, our engineering team designed a creative mounting solution that allows for easy installation."

Graco's single-line parallel solutions include the A900, A1900, H1900, A2800, A2900 and A4000 LubePro series pumps and GL-32, GL-33, GL-42 and GL-43 injectors. For more information about the complete line of Graco LubePro automatic lubrication pumps or to locate your nearest distributor, visit
