Pumping from two sets
How could I piggy back 2 sets together without buying new transfer pumps? It takes to long to change pumps, etc. after every set.
Any ideas?

Thats interesting, not sure how you would do that, so I am anxious to hear responses. I do know guys that use stick pumps will buy extra bung adapters, that way you unclamp move and reclamp.

You could eliminate your stick pumps altogether if you wanted to. We use our own pressure vessle system and can hook up to 9 sets and never have to stop untill the last set is empty. Much cleaner no drum pumps to maintain and if you are certified to spray our Supergreen foam then it gets shipped to you in the pressure vessle. So you don't have any empty drums to deal with.

Wall mount your pumps,eliminate the pick up tube and run hp hose to a tee,connect shut off valve on each side of tee.So you can shut off one and open the other.From the shut off valve run hp hose to an elbow connected to the pick up tube(create a stinger like for coatings).You will have to purchase an extra pick up tube for the extra set.Just an idea.

I agree. I would like to see what this pressurized tote is all about.
With competition all around, its not about the heat, its abous saving every second of time, making things more efficient.
Thanks for the ideas!

The pressure vessel system grew from FOAM-TECH roots of closed cell injection foam. 26 years ago the owner hsd to build his equipment. The pressure vessels were originally used propane tanks. This worked but presented problems. It has since grow to be a special made tank sytem just for our use. We have decide to start selling and marketing our SUPERGREENIII sprayfoam, and our SUPERGREEN injection foam. I am working with a manufacturer to develope a half pound system for the SUPERGREEN family. The differences with the SUPERGREEN family of foam is not what you would think. Our Foams are not better than all the rest but the service and experience behinf this service is what sets us apart. The pressure vessle system is just one small part of this service. The current pressure vessles are DOT rated so they can be transported. They eliminate the use of drums, and drum pumps. They can be "Daisy Chained" together to provide a continuous supply of material to the proportioner. Blowing agent loss is eliminated, this makes the density of the material being sprayed much more consistent. You have the ability of switching foam systems on the fly without chemical loss. If you want pictures and more details contact me at sshaw@foam-tech.com I will send pictures and pricing information on our system.
