Keeping Material Warm

Custom Rig with 4 Barrel BlazersWhy should you keep your material warm? Quick and simple: Cold material is unusable. When it’s cold it thickens and damages your equipment. The best way to prevent this is using a drum warmer or insulation/barrel jacket. Using these stocked in your building or rig will keep your material warm and ready to use and prevent costly equipment repairs and/or replacements.

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.Continue reading

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.
