The Equipment You Need For a Successful Spray Foam Business|The Equipment You Need For a Successful Spray Foam Business

By Kevin Malone

Successful spray foam businesses do not happen by chance. Every thriving company uses the best practices to pursue spray foam business opportunities and achieve successful outcomes. In this way, businesses stay afloat even in challenging times, adapting to the market and ever-evolving needs.

Having good spray foam insulation equipment is a major aspect of a successful spray foam business. This includes top-of-the-line spray foam machines and spray foam guns that can perform well without frequent interruptions and maintenance. What is the equipment that you need to make your spray foam business successful?

Equipment That's Right for Your Needs

The best spray foam insulation equipment varies by contractor. What would work for a high-volume commercial contractor, such as a heavy-duty PMC PH-40 with a long hose and supporting equipment, will not be necessary for a small-scale residential contractor with a mini rig. The best equipment combination will be within budget and make sense with your application goals. When you strike that balance between optimal function and cost, you have hit the most profitable zone.

For Busy Contractors: High-Output Rigs

The Interstate Diesel Spray Foam Rig is a good place to start for a default spray foam insulation equipment setup that is optimized for the 40+ hour workweek. Its spray foam machine and support equipment can be upgraded and adjusted to meet your needs ? ranging from the Graco E-20 to PMC PH40. This insulated trailer is uniquely designed to accommodate the needs of high-powered machinery. It can also be left on-site since large jobs typically last more than a day ? saving you on fuel costs and daily hauling.

For Predominantly Residential Work: Mid-Output Rigs

When you have a diverse workload, mid-output rigs are typically a good fit. These rigs have cornerstone spray foam insulation equipment like the Graco Reactor 2 E-20 and E-30. If you frequently do light commercial work, then a higher-powered machine like the Graco E-30 is preferred. For these smaller setups, you can use anything from a moderately-sized trailer to a mobile box truck that can navigate urban grids. An excellent rig to explore and potentially customize is our Classic Contractor Spray Foam Rig.

Touchups & Small Applications

Low output air pneumatic machines like the Graco Reactor 10 and PMC's new PHD-2 are excellent spray foam machines for contractors who do not need to cover a lot of area frequently. These can also be added as supplemental small machines for large fleets, so you do not have to go through a lengthy setup process to just make a few touchups.

If you want to skip the startup sequence altogether, a spray foam kit requires no supporting equipment. This self-sufficient kit is invaluable for busy, large-scale contractors or anyone who does not need to apply spray foam frequently. Whether you need to protect pipes or touch up some insulation gaps, this kit comes with plenty of extra nozzles since it can be reused within a set time.

Heated Hoses

Heated hoses keep your A and B materials at the right conditions to create high-quality spray foam. They are especially important for contractors who work in cold climates. When selecting your hose, make sure it has the right heating capabilities for your needs.

Also, every spray foam machine has a certain power maximum that is compatible with different hose lengths. Pay careful attention to what length you need to achieve your goals. If you have any questions about hose length, talk to our team about creating a rig that has the right components.

Spray foam guns

Spray foam guns are where the magic happens, so you need to make sure you get the right type for your application needs. Graco and PMC offer some of the best and most reliable spray foam guns out there. From the rugged and reliable Problem 2 to the incredibly lightweight PMC AP-3, you will find the tools to get the job done.
