HOUSTON, (Dec. 13, 2016) – Jetstream of Houston, LLP, a leading manufacturer of industrial high-pressure waterblasting equipment, parts and accessories, has introduced the Jetstream FX Tornado spinner gun for enhanced performance and productivity in high-pressure applications up to 40,000 psi (2,757 bar), including surface prep, coating removal, paint booth cleaning, stripe removal and tank cleaning.

 

The ultra-high pressure air-powered rotation of the FX Tornado gun allows the nozzle to spin while maintaining maximum force and continual cleaning power.

 

“High-pressure applications like surface prep can be very dangerous and time-consuming, especially when working with pressures of 40,000 psi,” said Lena Stoots, product manager at Jetstream. “The Jetstream FX Tornado gun provides a high level of operator productivity and safety on the job.”

 

The durable, reliable Jetstream FX Tornado gun features stainless steel pressure bearing components and a gun guard for nozzle holder protection and longer performance life of the front bushing. The gun also features large internal air porting for quick pressure release, burst shield and hose support for reduced wear of the high-pressure hose

 

The FX Tornado gun, with a Jetstream F# nozzle, can be coupled to a Jetstream Multi-Mode Valve to supply consistent water flow for simultaneous use of multiple guns.

 

UHPX nozzle tips

The Jetstream F3, F4, F5 and F6 nozzles use UHPX nozzle tips featuring premier, high-productivity sapphire nozzles. The tapered orifice retainer on the nozzle tips reduces turbulence and provides a cohesive, aggressive waterjet.

 

Multi-mode tumble box

The use of a multi-mode tumble box provides improved mobility and longevity of the FX Tornado gun. The tumble box features an air-actuated, high-pressure control valve and air preparation unit, as well as a pressure gauge to determine air-diverter cylinder serviceability.

 

Serviceability

For quick and easy service, the FX Tornado gun features rotation direction markings, tool holes and a service tool on the belt sprocket. No additional tools are needed for the handle, shoulder or gun guard adjustments.

 

Jetstream parts, accessories and rentals are available through FS Solutions, with 12 convenient locations in the United States. FS Solutions’ rental centers also provide industrial cleaning customers with equipment evaluations, expert recommendations and solutions and waterblasting safety training.

 

Both Jetstream and FS Solutions offer the FX Tornado spinner gun, in addition to selling, leasing and renting a full range of 10,000 to 40,000 psi waterblasting solutions, including automated and robotic tools and accessories.
