A turbo nozzle will not fit directly into the gun. This restriction is mandatory for safety reasons. Use a zoom lance or another lance, as this keeps the powerful nozzle away from the person spraying.
A turbo nozzle that does not rotate, or that has become clogged, is a simple matter to fix.
You can do this quickly and easily, - without tools.
You need: The turbo nozzle, cleaning needle that came with the back of the user manual, a good mood and maybe some water
Time taken: 1 minute
Open the turbo nozzle - it consists of two outer parts: The black bayonet, and the green plastic housing This is mostly easily unscrewed from the threads you see on the right hand picture below:
Inside the turbo nozzle it looks like this:
Find the cleaning needle. If you cannot find it, other needles can also be used. Please be aware that the needle is quite sharp!
Use the needle to poke through the four holes in the "cup" on the left, as well as in the nozzle pin in the right hand picture below:
When this has been done, it may be beneficial to rinse the parts a little under the tap, as well as to wash the inside of the housing with water.
Put the parts in place in the reverse order and test.
When the nozzle rotates in a dirty housing, wear increases significantly. If it is not better after a wash, it may have been worn out by dirt in the rotation path.
If the housing was spotlessly clean, and the nozzle is broken or damaged, this may be a warranty case. But normally the nozzle should function correctly after performing the operations above, and with regular use of the turbo nozzle it is not unnatural that it needs a little care from time to time.
We are currently working on translating and rewriting all of our articles into English from the original Norwegian. Whilst we are proud of the quality of our language skills here at AVA, we are aware that there may be some slightly odd syntax and wording present in the articles that have been translated. The approach we have taken to this translation process is in order to get as much information as possible out to our customers in a timely fashion. Thusly the ongoing revision and updating of these articles by our British-Norwegian team will include slight changes to how the text is put together in order to bring it more into line with correct British English.
