Changing Seals on Insulation Installation Equipment Can Do WondersAugust 20, 2015
It’s the first call that matters most. A contractor calls customer service explaining that a particular insulation installation equipment machine is not working properly. “Something is wrong with my machine! What do I do?”
As the experts in the insulation installation equipment industry, we at Capitol Machine begin the trouble-shooting process with a question: “What’s your machine doing?”
Answers vary. “The machine isn’t blowing material.” The next question: Before it shut down was material pulsating in your hose? “Yes.” Were you getting blowback in the hopper? “Yes.”
The diagnosis: Change your seals. In most cases when insulation installation equipment goes south, the problem involves bad seals – a problem that may have plagued your equipment for years.
Replacing Seals Fixes Most Problems
Seals in loose-fill blowers generally decay slowly. In the beginning, machines can expel 50 bags of insulation per hour. Over time, the rate declines, sometimes at undetectable levels until machines are incapable of pumping any insulation. That’s when the contractor calls Capitol Machine.
Investing in seals and in maintaining your insulation installation equipment pays significant dividends in the long run and makes good mechanical sense. Proper maintenance on these powerful machines means your business keeps running strong and running smooth. Setting aside a day during the slow season to conduct maintenance and to replace seals ensures you won’t miss a day when business is hopping and customers are calling.
