A new modulator demanded a slight adjustment
Tank threads damaged by abrasive
The tank orifice now comes with a seal to block abrasive
We put a ring on it
To solve the wear issue without losing the benefits of the new modulator, we added a seal around the orifice. This rubber washer blocks abrasive from passing around the orifice and brushing against the tank threads—a small addition that makes our modulator even more effective at consistently mixing air and abrasive.
Beginning Spring 2019, orange seals will be phased out, and all new tank orifices will feature a translucent, colorless seal. This is not a change in shape or size, just in color.
What do you need to do?
- No Seal? If your tank orifice lacks a seal ⇒ replace it with a new tank orifice as soon as you can.
- Older Unit? If your machine was built before 2014 and the tank orifice has yet to be replaced ⇒ please do so as soon as possible.
- Wear on tank threads &/or seal? If you see wear on the tank orifice, the seal, or on the threads of the abrasive tank ⇒ replace the tank orifice immediately.
While this update to the tank orifice was designed initially for the AccuFlo, it works on all of our blasters: from the MicroBlaster® to the PowerFlo®. Since 2014, all tank orifices installed in equipment and sold individually come with the seal. If your blaster model was purchased after 2014, check the seal at least once a year for wear.
Don’t Wear it Out, Though!
Constantly removing and reinstalling a tank orifice wears and tears the seal. If you regularly switch between tank orifice sizes, then pay attention to the state of the seal. If you do not regularly switch, very occasional checks should be enough.
