Barrel Blazer Improvements Allow SprayWorks to Prevent Price Increase Due to Material Costs

Barrel Blazer redesign

SprayWorks Equipment, a leading specialist in single and plural component equipment, training, rigs, and parts, has redesigned the Barrel Blazer – a 55-gallon drum heater for polyurethane and polyurea materials.

With recent price increases in materials, SprayWorks was looking for a way to keep prices down for the Barrel Blazer. Adding fabrication to in-house services allowed outsourcing costs to decrease. Additionally, material use has been significantly reduced resulting in decreasing total weight of the Barrel Blazer by nine pounds. With improved design and decreased material use, heat circulation also improved.

The Barrel Blazer is often used in conjunction with barrel blankets for optimal warmth.

“Material surcharges have been a real challenge over the last year,” says Jeremy Davidson, VP of Production, SprayWorks Equipment Group. “The last thing we wanted to do was raise the end-cost for our customers, so we came up with a solution that kept the cost level and delivered a better-quality product.”
