Problems getting selective nozzles off

Problems getting selective nozzles off | 3 January, 2013

I was wondering if any of you fine folks had a trick to changing out nozzles for a Pillerhouse Jade Handex. The tool they gave us when we purchased the machine is inadequate at best. I have tried heating the nozzle up, to no avail. Just wondering if any of you have a secret that you would be willing to share. Thank you

That's weird, I've never had any problems using the tool while the pot is up to temp. Over-tightened? They don't need to be tightened too much when putting them in.

I have had a couple like this. It almost seems like they are not threaded correctly. I had to mangle the last one just to get it off.

Beej, The tool supplied works well as long as the bath is up to temp and the nozzle tip was not cross threaded when fitted. Did you apply a small amount of the anti seize paste before the nozzle tip was fitted? I have seen dry tight threads if not applied before fitting the tip.

Thank you guys. I will check this stuff out. It quite possibly could be something we have done wrong. Thanks again for the feedback

Add anti seize to the threads. We do this to all of our nozzles when we first "tin" them with Active8. We usually don't have to do it again but in some scenarios it's necessary.
