We offer a number of machines with varying outputs starting at 1200 lbs/hour and up to 4725 lbs/hour depending on the material being blown and the size of the machine. This is measured in our shop by an open-blow test with the three most popular types of blown insulation: cellulose, fiberglass, and rockwool.
Our Insulation Blower Machines have hopper sizes of 34 cu. ft., 44 cu. ft., and 53 cu. ft. - all made with heavy gauge metal. Inside the hopper you will find our carefully designed heavy-duty feeder paddles that break up your insulation material and feed it toward the shredder, and on to the Air Lock.
All Star Machine Insulation Machines have double finger shredders installed as standard. These shredders work together to separate the insulation material to get you the most coverage. Housed behind hinged doors at the front of the airlock for easy access while cleaning or during maintenance.
To give you complete control over the amount of insulation material being fed from the hopper into the Air Lock, we have designed a slide gate that can be pinned at the best setting for the job at hand, giving you maximum control over your output.
Star Machine Insulation Blowing Machines come with three sizes of air locks: 12", 16", and 20" as indicated by the first two numbers of any model number. The five-vein plate steel rotary design is incredibly durable, as are the custom made rubber seals that we make as thick as possible to last as long as possible. All Star Machines have quick change seals and are easily changed anywhere.
Bleed off valve can be operated independently. Every unit has a one way air valve to prevent insulation from backing up into the blower.
Each Star Machine uses a heavy-duty reinforced cast iron Sutorbilt 3M, 3L, or 4L Positive Displacement Rotary Lobe Style Blower, powered by the same Honda® Engine that powers the feeder and the shredders these blowers are built to last!
Every Insulation Blowing Machine we make comes with a 150’ wired remote control, box mounted on the front of the machine, totally separate from the ignition system. This remote paired with our Double Clutch System allows you to operate the material feed and air from the blower, or just air from the blower.
All gas units have electro-magnetic double clutches. Allow air and material flow to be controlled individually by wired or wireless remote control.
All models come complete with flexible ducting and flange for engine air intake and engine exhaust. Also with extension and screening for blower air intake. When installed correctly, only outside air is used for cooling of gas engine and blower intake.
