What Commercial Spray Foam Insulation Equipment Do You Need?

By Kevin Malone

The right commercial spray foam insulation equipment is essential for any spray foam contractor to efficiently and reliably complete jobs. Investing in a quality spray foam rig and its components allows your business to operate productively and take on more projects.

When starting or expanding a spray foam insulation business, you need to evaluate what type of equipment makes the most sense for your particular needs and applications. The spray foam insulation experts at Intech Equipment and Supply can help you assemble the components you need, customize an equipment package for you, or deliver a turnkey spray foam rig.

Key Spray Foam Insulation Equipment

There are several key types of equipment that any spray foam operation requires.

Spray Foam Machine

The spray foam rig or machine is the core of your setup. This piece of equipment combines and heats the two chemical components, isocyanate and resin, necessary for spraying polyurethane foam. You need to choose between a trailer-mounted unit for maximum portability or a van/truck-mounted rig for onboard storage and workshop space.

Spray Guns

Quality spray foam guns connect to your rig to apply the foam. Look for durable guns with changeable nozzles and tips to handle different spray patterns and material viscosities.


Pumps push the liquid components through the heated hoses to the spray gun. Opt for pumps appropriately sized for your target output rate and foam type.


Heaters bring the chemical components up to the temperatures needed for proper mixing and spraying. Make sure heaters can maintain consistent temps across required hose lengths.


Heated hoses prevent the components from cooling and clogging before they reach the spray gun. Select hoses of sufficient length and heating power for your applications.

Chemical Tanks

The isocyanate and resin materials need to be held in tanks of adequate size to meet your job requirements before refilling. Bigger tanks allow longer spray times between refills.


Generators provide the electrical power to run your pumps, heaters and other spray rig components. Choose based on the power demands of your equipment.

Personal Protective Equipment

Do not neglect safety. Provide protective gear like respirators, gloves and coveralls to keep workers safe when spraying chemicals. If you have the space, consider adding an eye wash station as well.

Spray Foam Insulation Equipment for Sale

When selecting spray foam insulation equipment for sale, you will need to think about whether you need a trailer-mounted rig for maximum portability or a truck-mounted unit to have your equipment, workshop space and storage consolidated in one vehicle. Evaluate whether mobility or having everything self-contained is more important for your business model and the types of jobs you will be completing.

You also need to look closely at the output rate and production capacity you will require. Size components like pumps, heaters and tanks appropriately to produce foam at your target speed. Especially for new construction and large projects, the higher output will allow you to spray efficiently and meet tight timelines.

In addition, make sure to select equipment rated to handle the specific foam formulations you plan to work with most frequently. Certain foams have different chemical properties that impact the optimal hoses, spray guns and temperatures needed. The wrong equipment can lead to clogs or improper mixing and application.

Investing in the proper commercial-grade spray foam equipment will maximize productivity for your contracting business. The right equipment allows you to take on bigger jobs and positions your company for growth and success.
