What to Look for In Spray Foam Insulation Rigs and Trailers

By Kevin Malone

Purchasing a new spray foam insulation rig, trailer or truck is a big decision that requires a lot of consideration. Striking a careful balance between cost, value, and performance isn't always easy, which is why the experts at Intech Equipment & Supply are here to answer any and all of your questions about selecting an SPF rig.

There are so many things to look out for when shopping for spray foam insulation rigs so that you take home the right product. What are these factors, and how can you make sure that you get the right spray foam insulation rig that takes your business to the next level? This guide will give you a few pointers on what matters when selecting your next spray foam insulation trailer.

Check out What's New

Our team of experts stays on top of all the latest happenings in the SPF industry. Each year, new equipment comes out that addresses user feedback. Even product lines that are already crowd pleasers get small tweaks or programming updates to make them smarter, faster, and more efficient than ever. There are also new features added to system upgrades in the standard, pro, and elite models.

For example, the Graco Reactor series has been a favorite in the spray foam industry for years. Though it was already known for its great performance, Graco still took user feedback to create the Reactor 3 product line. Now, favorites like the Reactor 3 E-20 are smarter than ever ? equipped with the intelligent Katalyst System that grants contractors complete control from drum to gun.

Check for Variations within Product Lines

Most spray foam machines and other rig components have customizable upgrades depending on what you request. These specifications are important if you need something convenient like software to monitor material levels to stay on ratio. Using the Reactor 3 E-20 as an example, you can get the standard model with a brushless electric motor, independent A & B hose heat, Touchscreen Interface, new and improved ISO Lube System, and resistance Control Mode. These useful features can be enough for an experienced contractor to complete jobs seamlessly.

However, if you need to manage multiple job sites, you may need more 'eyes' on your fleet. If you need to use your phone or tablet to control your spray foam machine through Reactor Connect, you will want to upgrade to the Reactor 3 Pro. This includes other convenient features that can help you avoid errors, like automatic pressure balancing, power management, and cellular updates.

If you want all the bells and whistles and extra assurance that the job will have no errors, the Reactor 3 Elite models are what you need. In addition to all the standard and pro features, you'll also get Ratio Assurance, inlet pressure temp sensors, more software to improve your sprays and material levels, internally heated hoses, and extended hose lengths.

Vehicle and Trailer Type

Our selection of mobile spray foam insulation rigs comes in many variations, since contractors work in different environments and use spray foam equipment for diverse applications. You may just need a compact mini rig for small-scale residential insulation. Compact rigs are also ideal for navigating urban environments. These rigs have vehicles and trailers that can fit into parking spaces and make tighter turns in the city and suburbs.

If you have high-volume needs, you should take a look at our Interstate Diesel Spray Foam Rig. This rig is designed so that you can complete a 40+ work week without delays. All your equipment will be ergonomically arranged according to your request in a 16-foot extended height spray foam insulation trailer. This is ideal for big jobs like large-scale commercial insulation, building reinforcement, and roofing.

Stay Within Your Budget

The cost of a spray foam insulation rig shouldn't hold you back from getting the ideal setup that will make your business grow. If you need a pro series rig but lack the funds to make a full-price purchase, ask us about our in-house financing options. We can also help you balance costs with our used spray foam insulation rigs and equipment. Whether you need to finance a new or used rig, we have payment plans available.
