Tracking product yield is an important part of our day to day operation. If you have purchased or going to be purchasing a mobile spray foam rig or spray foam equipment tracking your money in yield will help fine tune your operational cost and aid in the return of your investment.
Tracking tells us how and if the yield of the product is or is not being installed and/or estimated correctly or if the materials used are inconsistent with expected yield. In the warmer months we can see what yields are achieved in comparison to the colder seasons for losses.
We can compare the yields gained when pre warming the drums. We can see if the applicator is consistent and productive with the application. The crew can also make sure they don’t run out of product, thus requiring costly cleanup, re-purging the spray foam machine and hoses as well as the likelihood of having to rebuild the spray gun.
In addition we can compare how hard the drive systems of different spray machines have to work when processing the products. It’s not difficult to track when using the stroke/cycle counters.
|Machine||Approximate Output per Cycle
|E-20 Reactor||0.0104 gallon||96|
|E-30 Reactor||0.0272 gallon||37|
|FF 1600||120 cc||32|
The insulating of homes and buildings has been a primary source of income for many spray foam contractors. The tremendous versatility of sprayed in place rigid polyurethane foam opens numerous opportunities owning a spray foam business for use in other areas other than new homes and buildings.
The ability of spray foams to provide superior insulation properties is not the only feature of the product. The cured foam adds structural strength; it is an effective sealer of cracks and holes, has good floatation and sound dampening characteristics, provides vapor drive reduction, expands into hard to fill areas, the application is fast, reduces the effects of thermal shock, bonds between various construction materials and does not lose the physical properties or insulation capability over time.
The ability of the contractors to take their mobile spray rigs to a job site and spray easily to irregular surfaces or odd shaped objects is a tremendous advantage of spray-in-place polyurethane foam over all other conventional insulations systems.
How many times has the crew showed up for work, got into the vehicle, turn the key on and drive off to the Job with your new spray foam rig and then you receive that dreaded phone call, the machine or equipment is not working, “it was working yesterday” or “we need more parts” and can’t work today. (Sound familiar?).
When running a professional and successful spray foam business implementing some standard procedures and guide lines will help minimize down time and help transform your crew into a professional spray foam production team. The first thing that is vital to your operation is that you and your crew have received the proper training with a clear understanding of how your spray equipment works including: Safe handling of materials, proper preventive maintenance, parts management, trouble shooting skills, and spray application techniques.
In addition the Spray mechanic has to be aware of three basic things. The proper procedure in handling a spray application project. What the foam should look like as its being applied. What to do if there is a problem with the equipment or on the job and be capable of correcting this problem. SprayWorks Equipment Group has compiled some basic daily, weekly and monthly Key check points that will help guide you along the way.
