IK Sprayers Maintenance & Safety Advice

If you've invested in one or more IK Sprayers then it's a great idea to keep on-top of their maintenance and general care. That way they'll last a long time without having to replace any of the parts or the sprayer(s) as a whole.

Cleaning + Maintenenance

  • Depressurise the sprayer and clean it with water after every use. Much like a snow foam lance, it's also a good idea to put clean water through the sprayer to wash out the internals when you know you've finished with the sprayer for the day.

  • Collect and dispose of the residual amount according to the legislation, prescriptions, and applicable regulations.

  • In the event of obstruction of the nozzle, clean it with water and do not use metallic objects.

  • If the filter of the handle is clogged, remove it and clean it with water.

  • Store the sprayer under cover, avoiding freezing temperatures and extreme heat (between 5°C and 30°C).

  • To prolong the life of the seals, regularly apply grease to the moving parts of the sprayer.

Safety Rules + Guidance

  • Always follow the instructions and dosages on the packaging labels that the manufacturer recommends for the chemical product to be used.

  • To avoid any consumption of the product, do note eat, drink or smoke while preparing and spraying.

  • Do not spray on people, animals, electrical installations, flames, open fires, or any other sources of ignition.

  • In the event of poisoning, call 101 or 999 in an emergency. Taking the chemical's product packaging with you to A&E, as well as any MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) information, will aid NHS staff in treating you.

  • Never dispose of waste product or cleaning residues near water courses, wells, etc.

  • Use suitable protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, goggles, gloves, footwear, etc., to avoid contact with the chemical product(s) with skin, eyes and mouth.

  • Read the instructions for the sprayer before its use. Do not modify the sprayer. Do not obstruct or strike the safety valve. Do not use the sprayer if it is damaged, deformed or altered from its original shape. Should the hose, tank, handle or any of its connections be damaged, do not attempt to repair but replace the items with new parts.

  • Keep each sprayer out of reach of children.

  • Use the sprayer only with substances which are compatible.

  • Use only spare parts and accessories from the manufacturer. We will not be held liable for any damage caused by the use of foreign parts.
