What You Need in Your Spray Foam Insulation Rig or Trailer  

By Kevin Malone

Spray foam has become known as one of the most robust and versatile materials used in modern construction. From providing the best insulation per square foot, soundproofing, mold control, air sealing, to even strengthening buildings, spray foam is a powerhouse. If you plan to start or expand your spray foam business, you can optimize your rig to meet all these needs and more. After all, as the technology for spray foam applications improves, there will only be more innovative ways to use this material in residential and commercial construction. At Intech Equipment & Supply, we provide standard and custom spray foam rig solutions that can meet the demands of your business.

Knowing what spray foam equipment you need in your rig is paramount to getting the equipment setup that is the most profitable to you. How do you make sure that you can make your bottom line with an efficient setup? Make sure that you have this equipment in your spray foam insulation rig or trailer for the best results.

Custom Hose Racks & Other Organizational Solutions

While spray foam machines with their automated features seem to get all the glory, there is much to be said about practical elements in a rig. Storage and organization solutions (or the lack thereof) can make or break your  spray foam insulation rigs. If you are fumbling through hundreds of feet of hose and struggle to find the maintenance tools you need quickly, you are losing time and money. Just throwing your hose into your rig can reduce its life by damaging its exterior. It is also a pain to untangle. Instead, make sure your spray foam rig has one of our custom hose racks that can hold up to 300 feet of hose! Not only will your rig have a cleaner appearance, but you can save space and reduce any damage to your valuable equipment.

It also pays to include a small workstation that can store your tools and safety equipment. Nothing's worse than having small items like tools getting loose and stuck in the corners of your vehicle. These elements are far more inexpensive than your spray foam equipment, but they add plenty of value to your rig. Details like a secure place to store material drums and methods to secure generators, proportioners, and spray foam guns in transit are also must-haves.

Upgrades to Reduce Downtime

Applying spray foam is a precise process that requires constant monitoring. If you are currently using older models of spray foam machines, you may be wondering what's new that can make the job easier. At Intech, we have great news for you. Top brands like Graco and PMC are continuing to improve upon their favorite systems to make spray foam applications more predictable. Through automated features that monitor pressure, temperature, and material ratios, contractors can experience less downtime or errors.

In particular, Graco's latest generation of Reactor 3 proportioners are designed to be used with a complete system with transfer pumps and heated hoses that all communicate with each other. Instead of mixing and matching parts, this option allows contractors to get their entire system on the same page ? then monitor and control it all through an app. The future of spray foam equipment is happening right before our eyes, and each improvement is meant to make the process easier for all skill levels.

Other leading brands like PMC are always coming out with something new. PMC's new PHD family of spray foam machines includes data recording, while the new Xtreme spray foam gun is an improvement on the already stellar AP-3. So, even if you love your current spray foam insulation rig, it doesn't hurt to explore what can make it even better in 2022!

Do You Need Used Equipment or Financing?

We understand that the latest and greatest equipment also comes with a higher upfront cost. But if it takes your business to the next level, it's worth the investment. If you don't have all the funds readily available, you can still get the best equipment through financing. We also finance used spray foam insulation rigs and spray foam trailers.
