What we're going to show you today is something that you've probably never seen before. This is our newest creation. It is a high-volume high-pressure rig use for interior spray foam as well as roofing polyuria is truck bed liners just about anything that you want to spray. The part of the system here is this control panel. This is a digital control panel. We can power this up. It has tremendous expansion capacity to it. We can monitor a number of different things, as well as data recording. Our future plans with this rig is to add digital pressure gauges, as well as leaving the analog gauges, digital temperature control, to see what our actual fluid temperature is coming out of. The block internal thermo sensors tell us what the internal block temperature and fluid temperature is. We will be able to run this off of Wi-Fi or off of cellular, where you will not only be able to monitor the job. You will be able to operate this machine from anywhere in the world via an iPad laptop or desktop computer. So this is a hydraulic driven unit. We build this power pack here at spec technologies. This power pack will send hydraulic fluid to these proportioning pumps. These are variable we can regulate the speed on these. The problem with traditional machines is that every machine that I know of traditionally is a single motor, whether it's air motor electric motor hydraulic motor that is tied to a pair of pumps with a common drive. This system here are two individual pumps. I can run them individually or I can run them together upon startup of our spec technology. Cd s, machine you'll, see this emergency shutoff switch. If there's a problem with the rig and you need to shut it down quickly, hit that red button. That'S what it's for! The opening screen will be our logo. It could very well be your logo and on this case it's our logo. You touch that screen. It opens our first screen, which gives us the heater temperatures you'll see that one side is 55 56 degrees. The other is about the same. We have four stroke counters on here, as well as the hose heat amperage gauge, which is that PI looking thing in the center and the temperature of the hose. The first thing we're going to do we'll flip over this other menu. Here we are going to set the target temperature of the hose for, let's say, 130 degrees enter, and we are going to turn that hose heat on. We can go back here at the home screen and we can watch this as it sends voltage to the transformer box which is over here, and you will start to see this temperature right here come up if I can get in there with us. Let me see if it'll zoom in on that it will not, but it's 59, it's rising 60. You should gain a couple degrees every minute and we'll just let this do its thing for right now, we'll come back to that in just a few minutes again, target temperature was 130 degrees as we're waiting for the hosts temperature to rise. Let me give you a quick review of what's going on over here. We have two analog pressure gauges again. This PLC system is going to allow us to convert those or add to those pressure trims, it's transducers, which will give us digital readings in the long run. What'S good about that is a you. Can data log all of that information, keep it on a flash drive for your records, so your customers know that your product have been spraying one to one for the entire day. It will data log the time it will data log, the pressures it will, data log temperature. In this case this is an analogue system, so we have two analog gauges. We have a pressure gauge you'll, see that we are down somewhere, Oh 55 degrees this morning in the shop these handles here on. The left are recirculation valves in this position. They are closed. If you turn them up, they're a little stiff put them up. They are open that allows you to recirculate warm material for an emergency. It allows you to relieve pressure off of your spray hose if you have to do maintenance or take your spray block off the end of the line. The c.d.s machine is the only machine that I've seen come direct from a manufacturer that has a temperature gauge within a couple inches of the exit of their here Graco pmc revolution, boss. Those manufacturers, I know of do not have any management or visual confirmation of the temperature of material coming out of the block. I would speculate that after seeing this video, these temperature gauges may show up on the competition's machines. As of now, our rig is the only rig I know of that gives you that information. Traditionally, you have an a controller, a beat controller for your materials and a hose control, and you have no real data confirmation between the heater and the thermo sensor. At the end of your spray hose our hose heats coming up, we're just fixing to kick over a hundred degrees. I just hit a hundred you'll see here. It'S not super clear on the video, but that line right. There is self-regulating the transformer that heats that hose and it will limit it to 40 amps, which greatly reduces the likelihood of a customer contractor spray tag burning up a hose. This is the only hydraulic rig in this industry that utilizes two divorced independent hydraulic pumps. I know that there is an electric machine in the market. There are some guys using gear pumps. Again this is a proven pump. This pump technology is probably 45 years old. It'S been picking up out of drums for 45 years paints heavy bodied elastomeric s --. We do a rebuild on the seals, so they will accept polyurethane. What this allows us to do is manipulate the ratio to a true one-to-one traditionally on every other spray-foam machine that has a single motor, whether it's air electric hydraulic that is tied to a single drive pump system. You are going to be off ratio, there's no way around it. Those pumps are tied together. You have two different viscosity materials. You'Re gon na have different crazy pressures, you're going to have different use of material. You are not going to be on ratio, and what this allows you to do is manipulate the speed of the pump either using the PLC that is in our future Edition. The PLC will monitor these through a flow control and actually adjust this. So it's a true one to one in this rig. This is a manual system that we built for this customer based on his budget again guys. Let'S take a look at this lubrication system. Spec technologies is the first and only company that I know of in my 20-plus years of doing this working with every type of equipment, customer Graco, glass, craft, PMC, boss revolution, every manufacturer uses some sort of a sloppy mechanical system with a spring or series of Springs Or a pump or washers or what-have-you, this is a positive displacement system that pumps lubrication into the lubrication Bowl. As this pump goes up and down, you can see that it stays clean. You can wipe it clean. Your only maintenance here is to change this lubrication oil. Again, spec technologies is the first. It is December. 22Nd. 2017. I would speculate that after release of this video. Other manufacturers might look at this as a viable option for their equipment. I just would like to say that we are the first to do this. All right. We'Re about a hundred and fifteen degrees right now, our targets 130, I'm gon na - go ahead and turn on the hydraulic motor which sits right down here. Simple push of this button. Here, let's get a baseline for temperature, we're going to recirculate. We are not going to turn these heaters on, yet that's your a eater! That'S your B heater! We are just going to turn on the hydraulic motor. These pressures will come up and then we're going to open the research valves get a base temperature of our material. Coming out of the drums so we're turning on the hydraulic motor right now, you'll hear the pumps kick a few times. They are providing pressure back to our pressure box. What I'm trying to do is I want to get a base temperature base, temperature, [, Music ] of what the material is coming out of the drums this morning. So all I got to do is crack this near the pump behind you start to pump. I can either open it all the way or I can create a little back pressure just by running oak. Cracking that open okay, there's your a side pumping. I don't know if you can hear it in the background they crack open the B and that b-side pumps gon na start pumping Music ]. So our pumps are pumping. We have material going through our heat block, but the heater is not on yet you'll still see that we are about 58 degrees on our analog gauge as fluid comes through here and recirculates. Our digital gauges say 58 point to the other, says fifty eight point: six Barros temperature is up to a hundred and twenty degrees. What we're going to do now go ahead and shut these down. You'Ll see the pressure come up. Okay, that's the B side. There'S the a side we are up to pressure. We are exactly identical in pressure, identical first thing in the morning at 55 degrees. What we're gon na do now is we're going to turn these heaters on the a and B heater we have to get this block. Heated up, this block is about a 30 35 pound block of aluminum that has been milled. It has six low wattage heat rods in it 18 inches long 17 and a half inches long, and we have a booster rot in there. The six lower wattage rods keep from burning the material and the larger booster rod. The turbo rod is really there to turbocharge the heat. It is a hybrid system, so you have fluid heaters and you have a thermal mass heater that eats that block. What we're going to look for is not so much block temperature we're going to be looking for fluid temperature. This takes about. Oh, I don't know five to ten minutes to really get this dialed in, but once that block is nice and warm you're going to maintain temperature throughout the day we are waiting for the block heater to heat up. Our target temperature was 200 degrees from the block. We need to get that thermal mass heated up again. Once that thermal mass is heated up, you will have consistent temperature throughout the day. What we're looking for! We want to try to get this temperature gauge. The actual fluid temperature gauge up to spray temperature, I don't care what the temperature, the heat rods, are. That'S what every other machine in the industry traditionally reads, but nobody that I know of has ever put a gauge right at the exit point of their heater to tell you exactly what your material temperature is. So we're going to do a little research here, you're going to see this gauge come up a little bit we're going to take some of the heat off that block we're gon na make this block warm up. Hey temperatures coming up, we've done from 55 word about 72 degrees right now we're gon na let this cycle again. It'S a couple couple a couple times circulate and begin our spray block up to temperatures all right. Our block temperatures coming up check the menu everything's still on back to the homescreen. We are slowly gaining fluid temperature. Again, I don't care what this block temperature says. I'M really concerned with what my fluid temperature is we're going to let a little bit through open up this valve you'll see that come up. Okay, we're getting close to a hundred 110, all right, we're gon na! Let this block heat up a little bit more, maybe believe the a side through a little bit. Okay, now we're getting somewhere and now we've got some good, consistent temperature, 110 degrees, [, Music, ]. Our heater block is nice and warm, it's probably internally, 250 degrees. The heat rods are not on what's going on. Is that thermal mass of aluminum that thirty thirty-five pounds of aluminum is absorbing Heat? It'S saturating, it's picking up heat enough heat. That'S not going to give you fluctuations throughout the day. I can feed 55 degree material into this heater and we're gon na spray foam at 120 degrees. Almost unheard of in this industry. Again, we're waiting for this thermal mass heat system, this hybrid heater to heat up, we're gon na feed a little bit of material through it. Just crack this valve open it's going to go back to the drum. We don't want to recirculate a whole lot. We don't want to create a lot of air bubbles if you're using two pounds: [, Music, ], okay, we're just getting we're getting this block heated up we're getting this heated up, we're getting all of this heated up, it's kind of like a cast-iron skillet. You got to let it warm up once it's nice and warm it'll maintain heat for a long time. Okay, guys spend a few minutes. This block is now heated up we're in a good hundred degrees. Posey is 1:26. Our target was 130. We are ready to spray. We'Re gon na get into setting these stroke counters here in a second I'm gon na show you how to dial this into a true one-to-one versus I don't know: 10 15 up to 20 percent off ratio that you'll spray with a traditional machine coming back in he's Been spraying we are at about 1,200 pounds. Heat looks good, we're just under I don't know 140 and that'll level out when it hits the hose. The hose heat says: 125 go ahead, Jacob there he goes spraying. We lose a little bit of pressure. I'Ve got seven strokes on the a side, nine strokes, so we've adjusted the pump speeds we can get into that and depth a little bit later. But we are now seven counts on a seven counts on B and we will monitor this and we can adjust the speed of these pumps to make sure that, after about twenty minutes or so that we are right on target one to one you'll see. Our pressures are good. You can hear the pumps running, here's our phone system, lubrication system pumps, are pumping and I don't know if you've ever seen a lubrication jar pump that much oil in it. You see the fluid actually coming out of the nice clear, hose lubricating that shaft again, we've got quite a few drums in here. This is going out on a job. On Tuesday day after Christmas 2017, the pumps running, Golic power, packs running everything, looks good, so we're 35 over here 33 over here we're going to go ahead and adjust that and we'll see if we can get those down to match perfectly again good pressure, and this Rig is complete, ready to deliver to the customer Music ]. Thank you so much for visiting with us. This is Tim again with spec technologies. You have any questions. Please call us direct at the number listed at the end of the video, we'll be happy to answer any questions that you have. Thank you. You
