Spray Foam Equipment Thermal Expansion Hazard

Fluids subjected to heat in confined spaces, including hoses, can create a rapid rise in pressure due to the thermal expansion. Over-pressurization can result in equipment rupture and serious injury. ​​

How to Avoid:

Open a valve to relieve the fluid expansion during heating. ​

Replace hoses proactively at regular intervals based on your operating conditions.
