We had a couple of episodes earlier when we were spraying then it'd start spraying stiffer and you hear it building up to a whine then a pop and it stopped spraying then you spray it into a bucket and it frees itself up
We were spraying large heads so the gun was up for a bit would this affect it or do you think it could be a small blockage it happened a few times

We're spraying again tomorrow so I'll keep an eye on the pressure, what does the dosing screw look like and where is it?, tbh with the consistency we do go a bit under the recommended on the bags but it's nice and rulable it's not stiff

It's in the Dry Hopper. Black In colour and attached to the massive mixing arm (dosing shaft). You will be able to see if it's worn. Give us a call if you need any help mate

They do wear out Dave, not that often to be honest. It also can be down to the material being slightly damp and compacting in the hopper. Let me know what it looks like and will sort it out for u

Cheers Ryan, problem is your miles away from me mate. I already have a G4 and the bloke selling it is only 2 miles down the road so I can see it running. Are there big differences in the two machines.

Output and pumping distance is greater on the M300. Same principals different buttons. Let me know which M300 it is. Will send you over a start up and clean down checklist

Are you leaving powder in the machine over night? Are you spraying tomorrow?

It's empty Ryan and if it was full we didn't know it would be a problem and we've had it full overnight and never had this problem before

The problem we had yesterday was after 40 mins spraying, it's coming out very slow and the rotor and stators 7 pallets old si spoke to Andy today and it seemed alright through a 15m 35mm hose but won't go through a 15m 35mm-20m 25mm 35m in total up one drop of scaffold

The moisture in the air at this time of the year will cause the material to compact if you leave it over night.

It sounds like your dosing screw is worn or maybe the consistency is wrong. I spoke to Your boss man and he said its only with the white your having the trouble? Are you still running it through the test pipe or are you setting the water the same as other colours?

Jenks. Best bet, ring them in the know before you put any powder into that behatch tommorow. saves all the guesswork. maybe even take a few pictures of your dosing shaft and get Ryan to send you pictures of a new one and explain why its not doing what is should. This time tommorow you will have the answer

We're using g00 parex we've had probs with blanc du littoral, were running test pipes and Simons pretty religious setting it up, **** knows about the dosing screw we've used it on probably 20-30 jobs, the machines stored in a van or a warehouse and if the gears in the hopper we give it a good stir to losen it before we start up

ok cool
 
One of my mates is using an M300 spraying blanc du littoral and he was getting best part of 2000m2 out of his rotors, with that stuff you need to spray slightly wetter

You should have no problems spraying any of the Parex materials, and if your only getting 7 ton your definatly running to stiff
