Jetstream Upgrades HP Gun Handles

Jetstream of Houston LLP, maker of high-pressure waterblasting equipment, has revamped the handles on its control guns used in industrial cleaning, surface preparation and other applications.

The improvements follow a recent overhaul of Jetstream’s control gun offering to provide greater selection and faster delivery.

The new handles will fit Jetstream control guns of earlier designs with no modifications.

New Features

The new design features:

• A 4-6 pound trigger force, for reduced operator fatigue and extended valve life;

• A narrower grip;

• More ergonomic trigger and textured rear surface, for greater comfort and a more secure grip;

• A long dump tube to prevent hot water from running inside the trigger guard and onto the operator’s hand; and

• Pins to prevent trigger over travel.

“The lower trigger force should reduce the cost of ownership by decreasing the likelihood that the operator will not squeeze the trigger hard enough, causing water to leak and destroy the sealing surfaces,” said Mike Bullard, parts marketing manager for Jetstream.

Additional Changes

Additional control gun improvements include a shift from welded to field-repairable guns at every pressure as the standard model and more inlet connection option, the company says.

“Previously, most control guns were welded at all joints and had to be returned to Jetstream for repair if the barrels or valve bodies were damaged by abuse,” Bullard said. Welded guns are still available as an option, he said.

A division of Federal Signal Corp.’s Environmental Solutions Group, Jetstream of Houston manufactures skid- and trailer-mounted pump units, control guns, valves, hoses, replacement parts, nozzles and other industrial high-pressure waterblasting parts and equipment operated at pressures up to 40,000 psi for a wide range of applications.
