Viper 40(TM) Features Self-Rotating UHP Water Jet Action
WIXOM, MICH. ...JUNE 01, 2005... With NLB's new Viper 40(TM), a powerful combination of UHP water jets and rotating action can be achieved with a standard lance. This innovative accessory rotates by the reaction energy of the water, eliminating the expense of a specially designed lance and an air source to power the rotation.
The Viper 40(TM) represents a new generation of SPIN-NOZZLE® heads, whose rotating action produces a wider spray path that increases speed and productivity. It is the first SPIN-NOZZLE® to operate at pressures of up to 40,000 psi and can be repaired in the field in less than five minutes with a simple rebuild kit. Previous models had to be returned to the factory.
The new head features two carbide and sapphire nozzle inserts, rotating at up to 5,000 rpm. Both are recessed to minimize knocks and damage. The round design of the precision-machined, stainless steel body also contributes to long life.
The Viper 40(TM) is rated for pressures between 24,000 and 40,000 psi (1,650 and 2,800 bar), with a maximum flow of 6 gpm (22.7 lpm). It weighs just 3.6 lbs. (1.6 kg) and has an inlet connection of 9/16" (14.3 mm) H/P.
