Insulation Blowing Machine Types and Maintenance Best Practices
Insulation blowing machines are used by professional cleaners and insulation installation experts. Because applications can sometimes vary widely, manufacturers of these machines have to make sure that there is a diversity of sizes and capabilities.
If you run a professional insulation removal and installation business, you will want to know which insulation blowing machine works best for your projects.
Here’s how to select the right insulation blowing machine for your needs:
The first thing to consider when it comes to insulation blowing machines in size and mode of operation. One common type is a truck-mounted insulation blowing machine. These are large machines with a high capacity, capable of working with up to 100 bags an hour. These kinds of machines are obviously unsuitable for home improvement or residential work, but will be absolutely necessary for large-scale industrial work.
Another important consideration is how portable you want your machines to be. Usually, the size of the machine will correlate to its portability. Typically, we recommend all insulation companies to always carry one portable insulation blowing machine as a backup in case any key equipment fails to perform as expected on the day of the project.
Now that you know how to find the right machine for your needs, you need to learn how to properly care for it. Good maintenance will help you save money in the long run and ensures that your processes are as smooth as they need to be.
Generally, proper operation of your machine and consistent cleaning should keep it in good condition for a long time. However, there are two other maintenance procedures you can undertake every now and then to ensure every component is in tip top shape. These are lubrication and waxing. Lubricating the chains of your machine will ensure everything runs smoothly and keep your machine free from dust and other debris. You should also frequently apply wax to your machine’s hopper. This helps ensure smooth passage of materials through your machine.
