Nozzle or Check Ring Hang-Up Purging Procedures (Color/Carbon)
Nozzle or check ring hang-up – color or carbon
Raise the temperature of the nozzle 20-30°C (35-55°F). If purging a heat-sensitive resin, do not exceed the safe processing temperature of the material. Feed a small amount of ASACLEAN (less than half barrel capacity). Repeat short, high-velocity injections shots until clean.
Exercise proper safety precautions and use appropriate PPE.
