How do you clean the valve and throttle in an air hammer? Why does my percussive tool blow the air by and not hammer?
Any customer, potential customer, retailer and/or service technician looking to flush their percussive tool.
In the manufacturing process for IR percussive products, the interior machined surfaces are coated with a rust preventative. See "Prior to Use" notes and WARNINGS below:
Prior to Use
Tools are coated inside and out with rust-resisting oil before leaving the factory. Before using the tool, remove this oil by dipping the tool in a suitable cleaning solution to wash the oil from the exterior. Pour about 6 cm³ (1.2 tsp) of a clean, suitable, cleaning solution into the air inlet and operate the tool for about 15 seconds. Dry the tool immediately after cleaning, pour 3 cm³ (0.6 tsp) of Ingersoll Rand No. 10 Oil into the air inlet and again operate the tool for 5 seconds to lubricate all working parts.
Procedure should be performed prior to use as described and repetition may also serve troubleshooting purposes.
DISCLAIMER: Many solvents, including those listed below; are water-based and must be quickly and fully displaced by air tool lubricant to prevent corrosion.
