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 best way to prevent this is using a drum warmer or insulation/barrel jacket.

The Benefits of Using a Barrel Blanket and Insulating Jacket

If you store a spray foam product, it must be maintained at specific temperatures to maintain its optimal state (or be usable at all). As a result, you’ve likely looked into methods of temperature regulation. Chemicals stored during fluctuating ambient temperatures can experience adverse property transformations not ideal for their uses. While the temperature may not feel cold to people, for particular products, dramatic exposure to changes in environmental temperatures are slow to change even one degree of temperature inside the stored containers.

Attention Contractors! Unique Barrel Heater

Barrel BlazerIntroducing the Barrel Blazer, a unique game-changer that will deliver magic for contractors far and wide. At SprayWorks, we are always looking out for contractors, searching for ways to help you improve cost in the manufacturing and processing of spray foam and coating materials. It’s our pleasure to introduce the Barrel Blazer. During fall and winter, the most common tech calls are directly due to weather conditions. When material gets cold in the dead of winter, it begins to thicken in viscosity. This begins a slippery slope, no pun intended. But when contractors attempt to process cold material, it creates a domino effect of malfunction. First, the transfer pump may fail to deliver material to the machine at the appropriate time or rate, then the machines goes off ration causing pressure sensors to shut down the machine. Next, error codes may arise, the spray gun may cross over and applicators spray a bad shot of material. During this debacle, the clock is ticking, but no production is taking place which means you may be losing money too. Depending on the particular projects contractors may be working on, it could have serious ramifications to meeting project delivery deadlines. The Barrel Blazer is an ideal alternative to an insulation blanket.
