THE ANSWER: Ni TROSYS
In recognizing this challenge in the low-pressure market, Spray Foam Systems aimed at
providing a solution that would do away with
manual calibration entirely, and what they
ended up creating was the new NiTROSYS
“NiTROSYS is designed to work with refillable low-pressure foam systems, and it
eliminates contractors manually calibrating
materials on the job site,” said Peters. “There’s
no system out there for refillable low-pressure
foam that preheats the material to keep the
viscosities equal to increase yield.”
Basically, Ni TROSYS is a low-pressure proportioner that preheats and automatically
calibrates (by volume) the material of refillable low-pressure foam systems, and also
maintains the material temperature to the
spray gun through specialized heated hoses.
The system is powered by nitrogen, which is
supplied via refillable tanks, and also features
a stroke counter, which provides for more accurate yield measurements. The NiTROSYS
system is sold by itself, for contractors who
already have spray rigs, or as a turnkey spray
rig package, trailer and all.
“It’s a good entry-level rig for someone who
may want to get into weatherization or hybrid flash-and-batt applications,” said Peters.
“They’ll see a lot of savings, and they’ll see
them relatively quickly.”
Savings constitute perhaps the system’s biggest advantage, and Spray Foam Systems has
been adamant about touting the bottom-line
benefits via the ROI calculator on the NiTROSYS website. Interested contractors can
see projections of how much time and material waste can be offset by NiTROSYS, and
how quickly they can recoup their investment.
NiTROSYS debuted to the public in October at the ICAA show, but has been extensively field tested for months to gauge its
performance and gather contractor feedback.
One of the early adopters was Dr. Energy
Saver, a home energy retrofit contractor network headquartered in Connecticut.
“We try to be an extremely innovative company, that’s very important to us, so we were
trying to stay ahead of the curve, technolo-gy-wise, and at the same time we were trying
to solve a problem that our network was expe-
