Default Speedtreater Uneven Spray

Here is my dilemma. I get THICK spray lines and THIN spray lines with the speedtreater. Then I get THICK scorch or staining in that same area. This is set at a higher amount of pretreat just to see what is happening.

I'm using the stahls fushion heatpress at 330* for 90 seconds with FB lite/dark

Joe at EZ is going to look into it. thicknthin.jpg

Sounds like a bad nozzle - I just ordered these:

Looks like it might have a pulsation problem. Maybe a small hole somewhere in the feed line pulling air in. Just a thought.

try soaking the valve assembly (chuck the nozzle in as well for good measure) in hot water for 10 minutes, then fire some canned air through it, it always seems to be that which causes any spray issues like bars etc...., the nozzles seem to last forever for me.

Great advice, do you do this daily or weekly?

I had a spare nozzle and it seemed to do the trick. I'm still waiting for the others to arrive, but at 39.00 each from EZ - this was the way to go. I soak them in Simple Green at night which was the hot tip from EZ. They also sent over some Cloggy solution I can try.

Try swapping out for a spare

I do it at the start of every day, at the end of the day i just put the nozzle/valve assembley into the now cold distilled water. I was using simple green but it didnt seem to work that well with brother pretreat, the hot water method (recommended by someone at EZ) i have been using for over six months now, same nozzle as well and i rarely get any problems.

I think I'll switch to the hot water method too.

equipment zone makes it "cloggy no more " its limonene and some other stuff they mix. i found their recipe but either way the easiest thing to do is to just use that same solution over and over again and let me tell you how.

i have 2 jars that are like 4 oz each i believe and they have a black lid. So what i do is use one jar with the solution and once it has a bunch of pretreat floating around all i do is get the other jar and place a paper towel over the jar and then i continue to slightly press down the towel in the inside center of the jar like a quarter inch and i get the other cloggy no more fluid that is dirty and i pour that fluid inside of the new clean jar that has the paper towel a quarter inch inside of it and the paper towel works as a filter and it filters out all that gunky pretreat and then you have clean filtered out cloggy no more again. i do this several times and it works and i also bought a air gun from amazon "

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 "

that helps me spray air through the nozzles once i pull them out of the cloggy no more in case they still have residue through the nozzle hole. i have a california compressor and a hose attachment that works well with the air gun i use.... its the easiest way i found to use the nozzles with no problems. if not you will have to use a brush to try to brush out the chunky pretreat that remains around the nozzle or inside of it and it is just messy ohh and also if you do not want to get any of that cloggy no more on your hands just do what i did and buy a pair of dish washing gloves that are latex free and they do not make any noise and are so easy to use. they sell them at vons or walmart and they have different brands like mr clean or your regular grocery store brand and mine are purple. i use to get cloggy no more on my hands and it was a mess and it made my fingers and hands wrinkle up and i realized what was in it cloggy no more once i found there safety date sheets and it tells you their whole recipe pretty much. it is easy to duplicate. i hope this helps you out!
