The Most Important Spray Foam Equipment Parts to Stock

By Kevin Malone

Spray foam contractors plan ahead to ensure projects go smoothly. However, they may encounter problems or delays even if they are well-prepared. This is because every job is unique, and customers' needs can fluctuate. This means you have to pivot and modify your plans and may even need parts you had not anticipated. Stocking an adequate supply of commonly needed spray foam equipment parts in your rig can save you time and aggravation.

At Intech Equipment & Supply, we have a substantial inventory of the most popular and in-demand spray foam parts and accessories so that you have everything you need to keep the job going. These are some critical spray foam equipment parts you should always have on hand.

Safety First!

Staying safe on the job is paramount to your success. After all, health is wealth. Having essential safety equipment like these items in your rig will ensure your crew is prepared to handle any job site situation and prevent injuries.

  • First Aid Kit
  • Eye Wash
  • Face Masks
  • Protective Suits
  • Foot Coverings
  • Goggles
  • Gloves

This is just a starter list that covers the basics of spray foam application safety and will ensure you can handle minor job-related injuries promptly.

Spare Equipment Parts

You should keep spare parts for the spray foam equipment in your rig. For example, if you have a PMC spray foam machine, you should have the correct replacement parts for that model. High-quality equipment, like Graco spray foam machines, works at its highest capacity if you clean and maintain it properly. So, you should order spare parts to ensure you have them when needed. We advise that you can keep the following spray foam parts and accessories on hand at a minimum.

  • Spare filters
  • O-rings
  • Spray foam gun tips
  • Lubricants
  • Spare hardware
  • Wall scrapers to remove excess foam from wall studs and ceiling joists. Be sure to have a few replacement blades too.

We can help you determine which parts and accessories you should keep in stock so you are ready for any maintenance or repair needs. We also have exploded diagrams for all your spray foam insulation equipment, which show the name of each part so you know what to order.

Regardless of what type of spray foam machine you use or the make and model, it is always good to include a spare spray gun in your rig. Since this is where the chemical reaction occurs, much cleaning and maintenance are required. You do not want to be forced to delay a job to take care of time-consuming cleaning and maintenance when you need to complete a job as soon as possible. Having a spare gun ensures you stay on schedule.

Maintenance Equipment

Every spray foam rig should have a workstation where you can take care of minor issues such as removing debris from seals and mixing chambers. These are a few things you should keep on hand to clean and maintain your equipment.

  • Solvents like Dynasolve to remove cured foam
  • Cleaning tool kit
  • Sandpaper
  • Buckets
  • Rags
  • Desiccant cartridges for material drums
  • Throat Seal Liquid (TSL) fluid to prevent paint and coatings from drying onto surfaces
  • Oil for your various machinery
  • Filters that are compatible with your equipment

Troubleshooting Equipment

When minor problems occur on the job, you should be able to troubleshoot them and get back to work quickly, which is possible if you have the right tools. Here are some of the essential troubleshooting equipment to have on your rig.

  • Multimeter with amp clamp to spot issues with electronics, hoses, etc.
  • Screwdrivers of all sizes, including a 5/16' bit, are handy for fixing SPF guns
  • Digital thermometer to take drum temperatures so that you know when to warm up your drum with Powerblanket industrial heating equipment (A simple meat thermometer works when you need more accurate readings.)

Do you want peace of mind? When you have an intelligent spray foam system like the Graco 3 Reactor system with seamless communication from drum to hose, there will be much less need for troubleshooting. You will get automated reminders about routine maintenance and accurate intelligence on the source of any problem.

Creature Comforts

You never know what to expect on a job site. You might have access to a fully equipped bathroom and a place to take a break or eat lunch. However, you might be in the middle of nowhere with hardly any amenities. So, it's important to include creature comforts in your rig, such as a folding table, a couple of folding chairs, snacks, and even toilet paper. Items such as sunblock, bug spray, paper towels, plastic eating utensils, and a cooler will help you get through the workday regardless of job site conditions.
