Generating Profits Without A Generator
Unicus Spray Systems develops rugged ultra-quiet, fuel-efficient spray foam rigs without the use of a generator
By: Unicus Spray Systems, LLC
Spray foam contractors are always looking for new and improved equipment to accomplish their jobs as quickly and easy as possible to satisfy customers’ timely needs. Most spray foam equipment on the market today requires contractors to use shore power or haul large, heavy generators to provide necessary power requirements for heating and pumping the foam material. These monster Gensets often consume anywhere from two to four gallons of diesel fuel per hour, resulting in thousands of dollars in annual fuel costs. Now there are commercially available spray foam rigs that do not require a generator or shore power to operate, and companies such as Unicus Spray Systems (USS) provide these durable, energy, and cost-efficient rigs.
With over 50 years of combined experience in the pumping and spray foam industries, USS builds unique turn-key rigs that take your spray foam job to the next level. With their USS Pro Air series design, the proportioner utilizes waste heat from the engine of the compressor to provide all the necessary heat to the foam material. This proprietary heating system provides a large Delta T, and a consistent flow of heat to the system, resulting in high foam yield for the sprayer. With this innovative design, instead of a generator consuming two to four gallons of diesel fuel per hour, the USS Pro Air Series is designed to utilize approximately one gallon of fuel per hour to provide air and heat to the system, potentially resulting in thousands of dollars in annual fuel savings.
Speaking of compressors, the USS Pro Air Series uses a three-cylinder diesel direct drive screw compressor that provides up to 92 CFM of air at 110 PSI; nearly double the amount of others on the market. This feature allows the use of air tools, a drum mixer, as well as an air-conditioned breathing system.
In addition to the high volume compressor and proprietary heating system, the USS Pro Air series utilizes a Graco air powered, high volume proportioning pump that can deliver a flow rate of over six gallons per minute and 2,000 psi of pressure, virtually eliminating electrical components that may fail and result in an expensive replacement or difficult repair. Not to mention, the USS Pro Air II allows two hoses to spray simultaneously at double the output for when time constraints are tight and projects must be completed quickly and efficiently.
With a compact, lightweight design, the USS Pro Air series allows multiple pieces of equipment such as a compressor, proportioner pump, and heating system to take up only three feet of cargo box space in a rig. Therefore, contractors are not limited to utilizing CDL trucks, which is convenient for those who work in large, congested cities and require smaller vehicles.
So, next time you are looking to buy the latest, innovative turn-key rig, look to USS to make your next spray foam job as easy and effective as possible for the flawless application every contractor seeks to achieve.•
