How Custom Spray Foam Rigs Help Your Construction Business

By Kevin Malone

Have you ever bought a shirt labeled 'one size fits all' when you were in a hurry? The chances are that it did not offer the perfect fit. It may have been adequate for the occasion but was either too large or too small in the wrong areas. Just as every person is unique and looks the best in custom-tailored clothes, contractors have different needs and thrive when they have SPF equipment and spray foam rigs that meet their specific needs.

Although contractors always work with spray foam, there are many different applications and types of clients. You may specialize in concrete lifting, commercial roofing, or residential insulation. All are different job types that require custom equipment setups. To get ahead in the spray foam business, you need to work with a distributor that offers custom spray foam rigs for sale.

The Best Fit

There is a big difference between a good fit and a perfect fit. While 'good' gets the job done, nothing compares to a 'perfect' fit. When a spray foam rig is customized for your specific needs, you will experience few problems in these areas:

  • Power: Custom spray foam rigs include the right spray foam equipment, so you do not overpay for a machine that is too powerful or end up with one that does not have enough drive for the types of jobs you do.
  • Output: Intech's industry experts help you select equipment that can keep up with your production without forcing you into a cookie-cutter mold. This means your dollars will be well spent, and you will be able to deliver top-quality work on schedule.
  • Hose length: If 160 feet isn't long enough, we offer different hose lengths, such as 210 and beyond.
  • Trailer type/size: We have everything from mini trailers to large box trucks that can hold multiple spray foam machines. Let us know how small or big your vision is, and we will help you meet it.
  • Equipment layout efficiency: Each of our custom spray foam rigs is designed to offer the most ergonomic and sensible layout to maximize your productivity.
  • Generator type: Not all generators are the same. We can recommend a suitable model to meet your budget, power, and maximum weight requirements. 

With a custom spray foam rig, you can also hand-pick the type of spray foam gun included in the package. You can order accessories such as hose racks and accessories. For example, including heated drum blankets will help you boost efficiency if you work jobs in cold climates.

From Generic to Specific

Applying spray foam requires specialized equipment to ensure chemical reactions happen under the right conditions. The timing, temperature, pressure, ratio, and other factors must align to ensure that the isocyanate and polyol resin react correctly after application. When you begin a spray foam business, you may not know precisely how your operations will evolve and what types of jobs you will eventually specialize in. In this case, starting with a generic spray foam rig setup works to your advantage.

For example, the Classic Contractor contains a generic group of industry-favored SPF equipment. It comes with the Graco E-20 or PMC PH-2 with 160ft of heated hose and is designed for entry-level contractors who spray up to two sets of spray foam daily.

This is an excellent setup to start with when you need cost-effective, high-quality equipment to apply spray foam insulation. If you already have a trailer and vehicle, you can order one of our spray foam rig packages with all the necessary equipment.

Several months or years into running your business, you will see that your expertise leans toward some niche applications. At this point, you can speak to one of our experts and customize your spray foam rig to meet these needs. You may find that the new Graco 3 Reactor system is for you or want to add one of PMC's powerful hydraulic PH series spray foam machines.
