Sounds like it's had it , have you got it clamped as far as it will go, we got 18 ton of weber out of our clamp, your probably spraying to stiff what's your back pressure when your spraying we spray nice and wet and in 2 passes

were getting 18 pallets out of a d63 clamp. did you do the middle one up and then just pinch the other 2 so the gap is the same down the clamp. what bar did you set the clamp at the first time?.

its brand new simps just got it off les 2 weeks ago he told me to set it up at 11bar which i did fine then test it every day giving it half a turn on all 3 nuts .to keep it at 11 bar worked fine then after 7th pallet started to stiff then watery i tightened it up again but made no differance if this one turns out the same i will be going back to the twister by the what do you normally use for monocouche i only ever used d63 think i need a change so as i can tell the differanse cheers simply

As simps said set it to about 11 bar then when you need to reset it just tighten the middle bolt then just nip the top and bottom bolt up, your basically setting it on the middle bolt. I wouldn't bother with different R&S the D6-3 is probably the best then a D4-2

always tighten from the middle first to hold the stator in place then tighten top and bottom bolts to the same as the middle bolt and the messure to check there all the same a pump test will then confirm if your right
