Printers Choice Spot Remover Fluid is a premium blend spot cleaning fluid for the removal of cured inks including plastisol, water based and flock adhesive. It is formulated for all spot cleaning guns. For spot cleaning guns, place a clean dry cloth behind fabric. Direct a jet of fluid through the soil until flushed away. If ringing or spotting occurs, adjust gun to widen mist and spray around damp area. This product works extremely well when used with a spot gun.

The Kit Includes:

  • 1 SG-5000 Textile Cleaning Gun
  • 1 Gallon of Triple Blend Spot Remover Fluid

CAUTION: The gun builds up considerable pressure. Never point the gun at yourself or other persons, as this may cause injury.

STORAGE:  The chemicals used in spot guns have very low vapor points.  It is best to store the gun in a cool area of your shop to prevent the liquid from turning into a gas and damaging the internal plastic components of the gun.

The Spot Removal Gun is preset at the factory and adjustments are generally not required.

  • Remove the container, fill with fluid (about 2/3 full) and replace. Plug into 110V 60 Hz outlet. Depress switch for 15-20 seconds to prime pump. Spray fluid onto scrap fabric to remove oil film from internal pump parts. Spray gun is now ready for use.
  • Adjustable Nozzle controls the discharge pressure of the cleaning fluid. This is adjusted by simply rotating the nozzle collar on the front of the gun.
  • Volume Control Knob at the rear of gun controls the volume of fluid dispensed. For cleaning, turn button as far left as possible: then back to right 1/2 to one revolution. Once adjustments are made to satisfactory pressure and volume setting it is not generally necessary to change them.

Troubleshooting Minor Mechanical Problems:

  • Fluid Leakage It is necessary that all parts , particularly the nozzle head, be tight to prevent fluid working its way through the screw threads. Cleaning should be done at an angle no greater than 45? to prevent leakage from the air hole at the top of the gun. Leakage will also occur at the screw threads of the container cup if it is tilted forward for an extended period of time.·
  • Lack of Pressure The primary cause of lack of pressure occurs when the suction tube, set screw, and nozzle head are not tight and the unit is sucking air. Blockage in the pump unit or nozzle and weak/damaged springs in the pump assembly are also a cause of low pressure. A lack of pressure will also occur when the prime is lost due to excessive tilting of the gun.·
  • Operation without Fluid It is highly recommended that this unit not be operated empty since undue wear and strain is caused on all working parts. Continued use of an empty pump will cause breakage of parts and needless repairs.·
  • Lubrication The gun should not be over-lubricated. One or two drops of light machine oil used daily is sufficient to keep the pump unit in working condition. For storage or discontinued use, it is recommended that a light machine oil be pumped through the gun in the same manner as cleaning fluids for a period of 2 to 3 seconds. For start-up, cleaning fluid should run through the unit prior to operation so that any oily films are pumped through the unit and flushed out.
