AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS

Grain Bins and Silos

     At Hoosier Square, we spray high density polyurethane foam on grain bins. Typically we spray in the joint between the bin and the concrete. 

This accomplishes three things.  It stops the water from going into the bin from the concrete side as well as providing a positive path for the water to run off; additionally it provides for condensation protection in the bottom of the bin. 

 We have sprayed old silos and new. For more pictures CLICK HERE      

 

Mouse Guard

     In our ongoing research for better products for our customers, we have come up with a system to stop mice and vermin.  Given the opportunity, mice would just love to honeycomb through the foam, especially if the foam is attached to a farrowing house with lots of access to feed.

 These ambitious critters can turn your foam, after several years of work, into mouse condominiums.

.Note:  The dark areas left on the walls are where the mice had burrowed out and had been nesting, the light colored areas are all that were left holding the foam in place when we scraped it all off for the customer. We then sprayed high density foam, covered it with 1/4" galvanized mesh wire, held in place with roofing cap nails, then sprayed it with foam again.. This combination makes for a very tough nonpenetrable insulation.

Pole Barns

Normally we spray 1" of high density polyurethane on the sidewalls of a polebarn (R7) and 1 1/2" on the underside of the roof deck (R11).

We have found, that for stopping air leakage, and holding in heat, this does an effective job.  It is important to note that one should always put more insulation in the ceiling than on the walls to minimize condensation.  That is, heat rises, along with the moisture, and where the moisture "sees" the dew point, it will condense out.  Just like in an old house with solid wood around the windows with single pane glass, as the temperature drops outside, the first place you see the moisture from condensation is right on those windows and around that wooden frame.  So if you have enough moisture in a pole barn, you will want more insulation above you than on the sidewalls.  That way, if you do get condensation, it will be on the sides, instead of dripping on you or your equipment.

FOAM COATINGS

Foam will normally degrade about 1/16" per year in direct sunlight.  The easiest way to stop it is to coat it with a heavy latex or acrylic paint.  There are acrylics available such that we can give a 5, 10 or 15 year coating and warranty on the material on either vertical or horizontal (roofs) applications.
