Assemble an Igniter Nozzle Assembly in 80 seconds or less.
Gather the appropriate materials and tools to assemble an Igniter Nozzle Assembly:
- Nozzle (#100-401)
- Igniter Wick (#100-4021-10)
- Igniter Cap (#100-4022-01)
- Igniter Screen (#100-4023-10)
- Igniter Bolt (#100-4024)
- Igniter Nut (#100-4025)
- Screen Forming Fixture
- Screen Forming Tool
- Brass Hammer
- Electrical Tape
- Fastening Fixture
- Drill with 7/16" Hex Bit
A description of these components can be found in the Drip Torch Product ID training module.
1. Form Igniter Screen
Place the perforated steel Igniter Screen into the recess of the screen forming fixture. Ensure that the Igniter Screen meets at least the marked line. Properly disposition any undersized Igniter Screens.
Use the rounded end of the forming tool and brass hammer to form the Igniter Screen into a cylinder, overlapping the ends to be flat.
2. Cut Igniter Wick
- Tape the end of the rope spool of Igniter Wick with electrical tape.
- Feed the formed Igniter Screens onto the Igniter Wick.
- Remove the electrical tape from the end of the rope.
- Feed the Igniter Screen to about 1/8" from the end of the Igniter Wick and use scissors to carefully cut the rope.
3. Assemble Igniter Nozzle Components
Place an Igniter Cap on both ends of the formed Igniter Screen, containing the Igniter Wick within.
Put an Igniter Bolt through both center holes of the Igniter Caps. Place a Nozzle and then an Igniter Nut on to the end of the Igniter Bolt.
A Replacement Igniter (#100-402) is assembled with all of the components above except for the Nozzle. The Igniter Nut is only hand tightened slightly onto the end of the Igniter Bolt as to not fall off during shipment.
4. Complete Finished Assembly
Set the drill speed to 1 and clutch to 12 on the screw setting.
Place the head of the Igniter Bolt into the fastening fixture and use the drill to fasten the Igniter Bolt against the Nozzle.
With the above drill settings, you should hear the clutch slipping before the Igniter Nut is fastened too tight, which would collapse the Igniter Screen. You know that it is tight enough if the Nozzle does not spin around the Igniter Bolt. You may need to adjust the clutch setting on the drill to achieve the appropriate tightness.
