When WAZER isn’t cutting and it’s NOT an Abrasive Clog.
Dry Abrasive System
The Dry Abrasive System manages the garnet as it travels from the hopper all the way to the Cut Head where it is accelerated to do the cutting.
This system does not have many parts, but will need maintenance and contains a few wear components that will need to be replaced when they reach the end of their life. Please contact email@example.com for replacements.
An abrasive clog is a blockage at some point in the abrasive stream. The most common area that this occurs in is the abrasive hose.
The end of the Abrasive Hose accumulates silt over time and can result in the clogging of the line, which can ruin your Cut.
In addition to the Dry Abrasive Hose, another area that an abrasive blockage can occur is in the Abrasive Hopper and/or mechanism at the bottom.
This is a quick way to find out if your Abrasive Hopper is clogged and if your Abrasive Valve is operating smoothly.
It is important that the Abrasive Hose End is fully inserted into the Cutting Head. The WAZER sucks up a carefully metered amount of abrasive from the Abrasive Hopper. So, if there is any air leak, the abrasive rate will reduce and the cut performance will be degraded
What to do when your valve won’t open. Sometimes after a severe clog abrasive will find its way into the inner workings of the pinch valve. To fix this requires the disassembly and cleaning of the pinch valve.
