Applegate R-Foam announces an improvement in quality control technology for onsite mixing of foam insulation. Applegate R-Foam's enhanced quality control equipment makes use of a Foam On Ratio Device (F.O.R.D.) to monitor the pressure and flow of pre-expanded foam insulation. The F.O.R.D uses a computer to regulate the ratio of the foam mixture, and if the mixture goes off ratio than the F.O.R.D. automatically shuts down the machine.
The F.O.R.D. is currently available on the Heuer II trailer, along with Applegate's R and C pre-expanded foams. R-Foam is optimized for installation in existing walls, even when stuffed with fiberglass batts; while C-Foam is crafted for CMU walls. Applegate additionally offers, several different turn-key insulation rigs, training, sales and marketing support along with SPF, cellulose and cotton insulations.
Established in 1978, Aaron and his son Terry Applegate began manufacturing insulation out of a small facility in Okemos, Michigan. Today, Applegate is the largest privately owned cellulose insulation manufacturer in the world, and supplies a variety of high performance insulation products throughout the United States. Applegate currently operates facilities in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Georgia, Louisiana, and Colorado.
