Chemical dosing rate

Hi - I have the (excellent) 1152 TST machine. The chemical input has no means of modifying the doseage rate. Can you tell me what the base line input rate is please? Thank you

Hi I have a kranzle 10/120 which I've had for 2 maybe 3 years now

It works perfectly , I only use it for personal use but I would say 3 times a week

I've never serviced it , do you think I should be giving it a service ?

Also what sort of service schedule would there be ?

Say how often change the oil ?

K1150t

Hi,

having had the above machine for a few years now, I wonder if it can be modified to completely stop the motor/pump when the lance is not in use?

It's a noisy machine and it's a bit of a pain switching it off between washing and rinsing panels on my cars.

Thanks.

Hi john, there are a few o-rings and seals which do start to age, if they fail the machine wont perform properly, which on a job wouldn’t be great.
The simple service I would recommend would be a change of oil (0.25L – motor oil: 10 W40 for the 10/120) then replace o-rings under the valves ( K150051x6) parbak sets K141231 and K141232, then finally to check and clean your water filter inside the inlet. I would recommend doing a service like this every year to be over cautious with your usage. These service parts are not expensive.

Hi davep, the chemical rate depends on the viscosity of the chemical used, the 1152 TST has a 3-5% chemical mix using the ‘Vario lance’ there is available some chemical regulators which go ‘inline’ the pick up tube and have a grub screw adjustment which can be set to allow only the desired amount through.

Hi whoami, Have a look on the first page of this thread and see the pictures posted, this should help identify whether your machine has the relevant parts to be converted. The new version of that range, (the 1152tst) comes with this as standard equipment but back when the 1150t was in production the range wasn’t as focused on going green and saving energy.

Chemical dosing rate

William - thank you for the prompt reply.

Do you have a reference or part number for the inline chemical regulator?

Do you know where I can purchase this?

Cheers - Dave

Dave, the product code for this item is CHE001 RRP £7.54 + Vat/Carriage.
You should be able to order using this product code through any of our supplier network group, the brass chemical line restrictors are in stock, so fast delivery should be possible. Thanks

Hi, you say use 10w40 motor oil, where would I get this from,? I have tried everywhere and all I keep getting told is, it's semi/fully synthetic and 'we no longer stock 10w40 only 15w40'?

My kranzle is a 7/120

Hi cheeks, Sorry for the late reply. 10w40 Semi synthetic motor oil is available from the likes of Eurocarparts, I checked and they do sell in one litre bottles for under £5. The recommended oil used to be 15w40 motor oil but it has been decided that the 10w40 motor oil suits this model machine better, I believe due to better protection when cold. If 15w40 motor oil was all you could find it shouldn’t course a problem.

Thanks for the reply, I can get 10/40 semi in abundance but I thought, with it stating in the manual '10/40 motor oil' I assumed it meant mineral oil? But if semi synthetic is fine I will use that?

Thanks again

Hi William I have a couple of questions.

1) Can I purchase a Hose reel for my Kranzle and what's the recommended length

2) I generally take the Lance and Hose off my Kranzle and Run it for 2 - 3 seconds without water to get excess water out of the machine. Is this Good Practice or Bad practice

3) what's the best filter to purchase for My inlet as I don't want to be picking up sediment from my tank.

thanks in Advance

Karl
