Nozzle Maintenance Guidelines


BASIC REGULAR MAINTENANCE

  • Clean nozzles carefully. Nozzle orifices damage easily. Be mindful of the importance of size and integrity of the orifices when cleaning your nozzles
  • Use the right materials. Clean your nozzles with items softer than the surface of the orifice. Plastic bristle brushes and/or wooden and plastic knives are ideal. DO NOT use wire brushes, pocket knives, welder's tip cleaning rasps or anything harder than the surface of the orifice
  • Don't force clean. Rigorous cleaning may do more harm than good. If cleaning is difficult or potentially damaging, consider soaking the nozzles in a mild solvent to loosen debris. Be sure the nozzle material can withstand the solvent
