LANCASTER, PA --  Finishing and respiratory equipment distributor, Grapek Bates, will demonstrate its products in action at Wood Pro Expo Lancaster October 18-19 at the Warehouse at the Nook in Manheim, PA.  The demonstrations are part of the event's Running Machinery Program.

According to Grapek Bates spokesman, Kyle Martin, the company will focus on how new respirator technology is changing the game.  "We want to demonstrate how industrial respiratory equipment can keep you safe.  We will demonstrate the different types of systems such as supplied air, mobile belt units, air purifying respirators and face respirators."  Martin said attendees will be able to try on the equipment themselves.  The company will also demonstrate 2 K (two component mixing equipment) to show the benefits of having electrical and mechanical mixing equipment for finishing.  The focus will be on how the new equipment can decrease waste, deliver accurate mix ratios and higher return on investment.

Grapek Bates will be exhibiting in Booth #220 at Wood Pro Expo Lancaster.  Click HERE to see a complete list of exhibitors.
