TIPS AND TRICKS

AXXO has extensive product knowledge gathered over 30 years and our staff will be happy to assist you with using products in your specific application. Here are a few general guidelines to assist you:

SPRAY NOZZLE INSTALLATION

  • Stagger nozzle placement on every other pipe
  • Offset adjacent nozzles 5-15 degrees from center line on same pipe
  • Angle end nozzles when possible to include maximum part silhouette
  • Spring Clip should be on entrance side of pipe (clip-on nozzles)
  • Spray from top first to bottom last (in general) to avoid streaks (this is not always true)
  • Re-check and tighten new nozzles after first use
  • Install filters or line strainers before nozzles to reduce plugging

AIR KNIFE AND NOZZLE BAR® INSTALLATION

  • Place Air Knife as close to the surface as possible for maximum blow-off velocity
  • Stagger opposing knives and nozzles to reduce turbulence and noise
  • Air should be directed at a 10-15 degree contact angle that opposes the product flow to maximize stripping effect
  • Parts should be blown from top first to bottom last (except on a mesh/belt conveyor where a final top Air Knife is recommended)

SPRAY NOZZLE MAINTENANCE

  • Flush pipes with nozzles or tips removed when possible
  • Never poke debris from a plugged nozzle back into the pipe
  • Never clean nozzle tips with files, drills, or hard objects
  • Soak Nozzle tips in approved cleaner, use soft brushes or pipe cleaner
  • Inspect o-ring seals and replace if worn, bent, or damaged
  • Remove nozzles/tips and clean outside the process area so debris does not fall back into your process
  • Always keep new/clean nozzle tips on hand for quick replacement when needed

AIR BLOWER MAINTENANCE

  • Lock out electrical supply and wait for all moving parts to stop BEFORE performing service
  • Clean and replace filters regularly (dirty filters are the #1 cause of blower failures and poor drying quality)
  • Replace drive belts every year or sooner if required
  • Protect blower system from dust, debris, and liquid overspray
  • Stop blower system immediately upon hearing any unusual or excess noise, which could indicate a bearing failure

NOTE: Follow all local safety codes, always lock ALL equipment “OFF”, and use the proper safety equipment when performing maintenance or inspection of process equipment.
