Typical high-end surface cleaning nozzles are large and heavy. While they are effective, they are also cumbersome and their weight can lead to operator fatigue. The lightweight, compact RD MASTERJET nozzle from Hammelmann Corp. solves those problems.  

The RD MASTERJET is lightweight at 2.2 pounds, with a compact ergonomic design 2.2 inches in diameter and 6.5 inches in length. Its small size doesn’t sacrifice performance, though, as it can be used at operating pressures up to 46,500 psi, with its optimum internal flow allowing the pump’s total performance to be used for surface preparation and high-end cleaning.

“Industrial cleaners are the target market, but it certainly has a place in the drain cleaning industry,” says Denny Mesarvey, sales manager for Hammelmann Corp. “Older nozzles with this capability were roughly 4 pounds. We’ve cut that in half.”

The RD MASTERJET has HPS sealing technology and adjustable speed rotation. It is designed for use with shotguns, robotic lance systems or replacement of any rotating tool. It has a versatile universal nozzle hub for working with two- or four-nozzle inserts. Nozzle inserts are countersunk in the nozzle carrier with blast-back shields. Its rotation speed is controlled by an infinitely variable magnetic brake.

“With adjustment down to 5,000 psi, it is terrific for many cleaning jobs,” says Mesarvey. “We think contractors are really going to love the unit’s pressure and rotation versatility.”

The nozzle can be used for cleaning and washing, expansion joint removal, coating and paint removal from surfaces, blasting pipe externals, paint booth grid and skid cleanup, superstructure surface preparation, heavy machinery cleanup and surface preparation. Mesarvey says that with many drain cleaners venturing into surface preparation work, it makes sense to have a versatile nozzle like the RD MASTERJET in the toolbox.

“A lot of guys who used to focus on pipe cleaning are starting to take more industrial jobs because they have the equipment powerful enough to do it,” he says. “The feedback we’ve gotten from contractors that are already using this in the field indicates that the biggest positives are the small size, light weight and the versatility with its high-pressure rating.”

Mesarvey says anytime a contractor can use one product to perform multiple jobs, it means big value.

“These contractors are always looking for ways to become more efficient,” he says. “This nozzle helps them do it. 800/783-4935;
