In recent years, Tsunami Compressed Air Solutions has grown into new markets and provided countless solutions for patrons dealing with compressed air on the job site. One market, the spray foam market, has seen a spike in sales as awareness for clean, dry air in the air supply becomes more pertinent for increasing longevity of the equipment, spraying longer, and protecting profits.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to tag along on a job site visit with one of the product managers for some application understanding and trouble shooting for a spray foam contractor. He had purchased the Tsunami dryer a few years back and was interested in learning more about servicing the dryer for longer life, and more spraying!
“This dryer is awesome”, said the contractor. “A few years ago I bought it, plugged it in, and it’s worked ever since”. Pictured below is the Tsunami dryer installed on the wall of the trailer next to his air compressor:
Why invest in an air drying system for your spray foam rig?
In the spray foam industry, contractors rely on compressed air to operate the drum pump that pushes the two chemicals to the gun; where they meet and “foam” at the tip. Having clean, dry air is crucial in this process for the drum pumps. Any time you have contamination, water, oil, oil additives from compressors, and particulates, you can start to damage those drum pumps. Degradation in the motor housings will take place and require the motor to be replaced.
On the other end of the process, the spray gun, the same compressed air is used to purge the mixing chamber; freeing the gun of chemicals in between spray intervals. Any dirt, oils, particulates, etc. will gunk up the chamber and require cleaning between jobs. Again, costing the contractor more down time.
The cleaner and drier the air for spray foam applications, the better. In the spray foam world, it makes a huge difference to have very clean and dry air.
