New SPIN-NOZZLE® Gets Back in Action in 5 Minutes



WIXOM, MICH. ...JULY 27, 2004... NLB Corp.'s latest SPIN-NOZZLE®, the Viper 24(TM), has two significant advantages over previous self-rotating water jet heads - it operates at pressures from 5,000 to 24,000 psi (350 to 1,680 bar) and practically eliminates downtime. While older heads must be returned to the factory for repairs, the Viper 24(TM) can be repaired in the field in just five minutes and go right back to work.

A new cylindrical design helps the stainless steel Viper 24(TM) avoid bumps as it rotates on the end of a water jetting lance. This makes it even more rugged and eliminates the need for a protective guard. The head is threaded to accept two nozzles, which are flush-mounted to further minimize impact. NLB offers a range of nozzles, to suit a variety of applications.

Like NLB's other SPIN-NOZZLE® units, the Viper 24(TM) rotates by the reaction energy of the high-pressure water it delivers, without any external driver. It turns any standard lance into a more powerful water jetting tool. Lances rated at 10,000 psi (700 bar) with 3/8" or 1/2" barrels (9.5 to 12.7 mm) require a simple adapter.

NLB, a leader in high-pressure and ultra-high pressure water jet technology, manufactures a full line of quality water jetting systems and accessories for many uses. These include surface preparation, industrial cleaning, tank cleaning, descaling, paint and sludge removal, concrete demolition, concrete and pipe cutting, and more.
