How long does spray foam take to harden?

Spray foam insulation is a great way to create a tight, energy-efficient structure. It comes in several versions, each of which comes with unique benefits. Spray foam insulation expands about 40 to 100 times the initial volume applied, depending on the type. It can be tack free in 20 to 60 seconds after application. A full cure will be reached in about 8 to 24 hours depending on the ambient temperature, humidity and moisture in the substrate.

A QUALITY SPRAY FOAM RIG BEGINS WITH A FIRM FOUNDATION

A trailer built on an under-rated GVWR will deteriorate quickly.

Spray foam and coatings rigs haul heavy loads daily. Make sure the axles are sized to handle the loads being hauled daily. Normal GVWR will range from 10,000 lbs. to 16,000 lbs. Torsion axles will provide a smoother ride and maintenance free, more rigid, and better handling control in cross winds and rough roads than spring axles.

It is imperative to have an equally balance spray foam trailer. If the tongue weight is TOO HEAVY (weight>15% of load) or TOO LIGHT (weight

THE REACTOR SPRAY FOAM MACHINE PACKAGE

The REACTOR (Proportioner) Heats, Pressurizes, and Dispenses the A & B Materials to produce the Spray Foam or Coating Product. Certain models of Reactors have larger preheaters, longer hose capabilities, various pressure ratings, different output abilities, and functioning power requirements.

A Reactor Package consist of The Reactor, Transfer Pumps, Transfer & Recirculation Lines, Heated Hoses, and Gun.

Under sizing the Reactor will result in damaged equipment, down time, and repair cost. Preventing efficient processing for producing quality product.

It is important to know the market segment that will be Targeted. (Residential, Commercial, Roofing, Slab Jacking, Secondary Containment, Bedliners, etc.…. A turnkey Spray Foam Rig or Coatings Rig will be built custom for the applications the investor purchases it for.

Investing in a larger reactor setup will tackle both Low-Volume and High-Volume Productions. However, the difference in price for the entire rig package can be $20K to $50K. So, choosing the correct Reactor is key to prevent overspending without under sizing.

Since Rigs are built custom with components to support a specific Spray Foam Reactor Packages, they are not always up-gradable. This means if a rig is built to target residential work, the components makeup of the rig will be sized for that specific Reactor.

For Example, a Residential Spray Foam Setup with a Graco E20 Reactor is capable of 210 Ft. hose length, and Sprays 20 Lbs./ Min. The Generator that powers this Rig is 22KW, Compressor 3 HP, and the System is built on a 16ft. 10K GVWR Trailer Platform. This rig is not powerful or large enough to host a Higher Volume Reactor. A whole new rig would need to be purchased for the upgrade. So, it is important to work with an equipment specialist to select the best possible Reactor Package.

SELECTING THE PROPER COMPRESSOR FOR A SPRAY FOAM RIG

Selecting the Proper Spray Rig Compressor is vital to operate efficiently. The compressor supplies air to many components.

Pneumatic Transfer Pumps and Air Purge Gun range from 13 to 15 CFM.(Basic System Operation)

Many 0.50Lb. Open Cell Spray Foams and Polyurea Coatings will need to be mixed continuously. An Agitator or Mixer Demand 5 to 15 CFM. (Selecting a product that needs no mixing will bypass this process.)

Some sprayers prefer High Pressure Breathing Systems. The compressed air is filtered from the Compressor and delivers clean breathable air to the applicators mask. These systems demand at least 15 to 30 CFM. We will discuss Fresh Air Selection later in this Article. Low Pressure Separate Fresh Air Pumps eliminate the high demand of CFMs. (Optional)

An UNDERSIZED Compressor will not supply enough air for the Pumps, Gun, Mixer and Breathing System. This will result in insufficient material supply, improper mixing, gun failure, and shortage of supplied air to the sprayer. Ultimately poor material processing, reducing yield and return on Investment.

Refrigerated Air Dryers are used remove water vapor created by the compressor. Refrigerating the air before feeding the spray foam component eliminates condensation deliver by the air hoses to the rig components. Removing unwanted moisture is important to protect equipment and prevent moisture from mixing with ISO or A-Side Material. Guns with moisture will clog easier and create more down time. Moisture will also contaminate the processing, reducing yield and producing a Less Quality Product. Like every other component it is Important to size the Air Dryer to handle the CFM being used by the system.

If using a Screw Compressor, a Coalescent Filter is a must. It stops oil from contaminating the Dryer and Air Lines. This should be standard in all quality screw compressor installs. These filters need to be changed as the manufacturer recommends in the systems manual.

SELECTING THE PROPER GENERATOR FOR YOUR SPRAY FOAM RIG

•Spray Foam Rigs require Massive Amounts of Power, to run all the System’s Components. The REACTOR “Proportioner” utilizes Primary Pre-Heaters ranging from 6 KW on the Low End to 20 KW on the High End.

•Spray Machines also have Heated Hoses, to keep the materials warm as they pass through, maintaining desired processing temperatures. An Electric motor operates either Electric or Hydraulic Displacement Pumps and Pressurize the A&B Materials. In addition to the REACTOR, Compressors, Air Dryers, Lights, Outlets, Fresh Air Pumps, Interior Heaters, Air Conditioners, and other Auxiliary Tools will need Power. Total system requirements will range from 20 KW to 50 KW in most spray rigs, and up to 100 KW (+) in Dual REACTOR Rigs.

•Selecting a Generator Manufacturer who honors warranty and Supports their product locally is key! Our Generators can be repaired all over the Nation with no problems.

•We recommend using a diesel generator. They are more fuel efficient, run cooler, have 20 times the longevity, and way fewer overall issues.

•Many companies will build cheaper rigs with gas generators to keep their cost down. The load demand of the Spray Foam System is extremely high. Gas generators will be pushed to the max and fail to deliver the, on-demand continuous, power needed for maximum production. This will result in blown engines and burnt up equipment. In hot weather gas generators overheat often. If run inside a trailer can catch on fire and create a dangerous work environment if not cooled properly.

•We are and official Dealer of the Generator we use in our designs, and the manufacturers are aware how the units are used. Winco and Morse have both designed their products specifically for this type of application.

•The generator needs to be Properly Ventilated and Exhausted. Not properly venting the generator will result in OVERHEATING. Not exhausting the generator correctly could result in carbon monoxide poisoning and even death.

•GENERATOR SIZE MATTERS- Under sizing a Generator will shorten its life and the components it powers. This will prevent spray equipment from delivering the proper air, heat, and pressure. The result Down Time, Poor Product Yield, and Fried Equipment.

*Generator Compressor Combos such as the Winco 40/40 and the Morse 40/40 Combos can be used to cut down power consumption. These Units have a 40 CFM Screw Compressor belt driven by the engines instead of generator power. *

*We Size all our Spray Foam and Coatings Rigs to be built with a 1.25 Percent to include a safety factor of 15 to 25%. This assures enough Wattage is available, regardless of the systems demand. *

*If a rig builder installs a generator inside a Trailer and the Generator Manufacturer does not approve of the install, Warranty will be VOID. *

Furthermore, some equipment manufacturers are better than others. All of our components are fully supported by the team at Paratus Supply and also by the manufacturer. Hence this is extremely important to keep your down time at a minimum. We know that everyone considers price to be important when making an investment. Paratus Supply provides a price that is fair for the quality of our builds and the never-ending service we provide to our client. There is always someone that can provide a product cheaper but remember this: the glory of a discount dies shortly after the poor quality of a product cost you more.

From the ground up, we start with a custom built Qualitec trailer which has additional interior height for easy removal of transfer pumps from the 55 gallon drums. Our Qualitec trailers are built with steel box tube frames, complete steel box tube floor support beams and a steel box tube skeleton. All of our trailers are insulated with 2# closed cell spray foam insulation. In addition to being insulated with closed cell spray foam insulation, our trailers are also heated to control the internal temperature for proper chemical processing and storage. Pressure treated wood is used on the interior walls and these walls are covered with polished aluminum diamond plate, illuminating the work space and offering a surface that is more durable and easier to clean. Dense rubber is used on the floor to protect the wood and provide better traction. Custom barrel braces are used to secure the 55 gallon drums and keep them in place during transportation. Paratus Supply’s rigs feature a screwless skin of 0.030” aluminum that makes it look cleaner and makes it easier for your custom trailer wrap to be applied. Paratus uses only torsion axles on all of our trailers which results in a smoother ride and independent all-wheel suspension.
