Essential Spray Foam Insulation Equipment for Your Rig

Whether you're outfitting your rig for the first time or are expanding your spray foam business with new machines and upgrades, you need to know the must-haves for your business. At Intech Equipment and Supply, we have all the right machines, guns, hoses, accessories, and replacement parts that will keep your operations running strong. But what are the essentials and what are the optional add-ons?

These are some of the essential?spray foam insulation equipment?and parts we recommend for your rig.

1: The Rig

Before you buy anything else, you need to have a dependable place to store and transport your spray foam equipment. We carry many types of rigs that are suitable for different scales of work. If you're just starting out and need something small, our mobile rigs can easily attach to the back of a truck. 

These rigs can carry smaller machinesthat are ideal for small-scale residential spray foam applications, or they canbe supplements to a larger fleet. Then, variations range to large rigs thatstore plenty of gear for high-volume commercial applications. If you need helpselecting the right rig for your business, learn how to choose a spray foam rig onlineor speak with one of our representatives today. Many of our rigs arecustomizable to meet your exact transporting and storage requirements.

2: The Machine

The core of your operations depends on the quality of your machine. ?Its output and power should be compatible with the kind of volume you typically apply. The compact?Graco Reactor E-20 Proportioner?is great for a contractor who typically works with residential or small commercial jobs. It can fit in a modestly-sized trailer rig and still give you plenty of room to store other equipment.

Meanwhile, the PMC PHX-40 Proportioner is one of our best sellers to contractors who regularly service high-volume commercial applications. This machine has been redesigned to make the contractor's experience the best it can be, even when things get hectic. It's easy to troubleshoot with a simpler circuit board and electric display. It's also packed with other automated features that ensure user safety and product longevity.

Smaller machines have a smaller capacity and are usually air or electric driven, whereas higher powered machines for big jobs are hydraulic. To be matched with the right spray foam machine for you, you can browse our selections here or speak to a sales representative today.

3: The Spray Foam Gun

For the best results, you should onlyrun one gun off one proportioner. This ensures an even spray foam applicationbecause the pressure is consistent. 

Matching the same brand gun with thebrand of the proportioner is another best practice. If you have a PMC machine,the new PMC AP-3 Air Purge Gun is a modern addition to your equipment. It's only 2.4 pounds, makingit the lightest spray foam gun in its class. It also has trigger stroke controlto make the gun easier to manage and accurately apply spray foam by minimizinguser fatigue.  You can also easily go with PMC's AP-2 AirPurge Gun for a product of similar quality.

If you're using a Graco proportioner,the brand offers many great choices. The GracoFusion AP Spray Gun is the brand's mostpopular plural-component gun for most spray foam applications. Its simpleair-blast tip technology minimizes the downtime and maintenance it needs on thejob.

The Graco CS Fusion Gun is another greatgun to run off your Graco proportioner. It is the first ever liquid purge gunto be manufactured and it uses a disposable ClearShot cartridge to clearmaterials and keep the mix chamber clear. This is a big-time saver and a mustfor the busy contractor!

4: Parts & Accessories

One thing that is inevitable aboutthe spray foam business is that your equipment will need replacement parts andmaintenance. Accessories like extension wands and different style tips alsomake the job easier.
