Mobile Spray Rigs
A mobile sprayfoam rig serves as a self-contained, complete job site all in one convenient and portable unit. Not only does a mobile sprayfoam rig contain all of the SPF equipment you need to complete a spray foam insulation job, but it also comes in a handy setup that you can quickly move from one job location to another.
Mobile spray rigs offer the benefit of providing an enclosed space within which everything can be stored securely and protected from the elements.
Guide to Using Mobile Sprayfoam Rigs: How Do They Work?
Learning how your mobile sprayfoam rig operates can help you better understand the major components required within your rig, box truck, or portable spray foam unit.
Typically, a mobile sprayfoam rig contains the following equipment and materials:
- Foam Rig Generators. The generator provides a 220V power supply to the spray foam machine and electric compressor. A 110V power supply is used for lighting, heaters, power tools, and additional outlets.
- Foam Rig Compressors. A compressor supplies air to the transfer pumps, drum mixer, and spray gun. Note: some drive systems used to operate the spray foam machine may require air.
- Spray Foam Rig Air Dryers. Contractors use air dryers to filter out moisture contaminants from the compressor to the spray foam equipment, including transfer pumps, spray gun, air mixers, or if using an air-driven type spray foam machine.
- Safety Supply and Mechanics Station. Most rigs feature a safety supply station and spray mechanic’s work area to perform any required maintenance. This station provides space for tools, PPE, supplies, and manuals for all spray foam equipment, and keeps your material safety data sheets organized.
- Spray Foam Rig Drum Rack Station. A drum rack station secures the 55-gallon drums safely during transport. The rack should be color-coded red on the driver’s side for the (A) component and blue on the passenger side for the (B) component of the spray rig to avoid accidental cross contamination of the product’s link to the spray foam machine.
- Spray Foam Rig Drum Heaters. Drum heaters keep products warm in cooler environments. They help pre-warm chemicals to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
- Spray Foam Rig Transfer Pumps. These consist of an air-motor which moves a shaft fixed to pump packings that work with check-valves by displacing the materials to the spray foam machine. Transfer pump tube holders are used for transit, storage, and changing out the drum in the spray rig.
- Spray Foam Machine. The spray foam machine is where the manufacturing of spray foam begins.
- Heated Spray Hoses. Heated spray hoses maintain the manufacturer’s pre-heated recommendations from the machine to the spray gun and are typically sold in 50 ft. sections. The end of the hoses has a 10 ft. heated whip hose for flexibility for the spray applicator.
- 2-Spray Foam Gun. The spray gunblends the two (A) and (B) chemicals through the internal mixing chamber. Mixing chambers are designed for optional output flows, allowing the user to choose the flow of material, as well as the production needed for the spray foam project.
