Rotary Turbo Nozzle Buying Guide - How to Pick the Perfect Rotary Turbo Nozzle. The power washer experts at Pressure Washers Direct have compiled a comprehensive rotary turbo nozzle buyer's guide, including videos and charts.
You can literally carve your name in wood with your red zero degree spray.
Unfortunately, the pencil-thin spray is so narrow that it canít cover much surface area. Even Superman couldnít move a wand fast enough to clean a driveway with a red spray tip.
Now, imagine the strength of a red spray tip spinning at supersonic speed. Thatís what a turbo nozzle does.
How it Works
A rotary turbo nozzle automatically spins a zero degree spray in a 4-8 inch circle at 3000 rotations per minute.
The spinning water jet hits the surface area from multiple angles, quickly breaking down caked-on dirt and grime. As a result, rotary nozzles can cut cleaning time in half.
Selecting the Right Nozzle
Picking the perfect turbo nozzle is similar to selecting spray tips.
First, you simply match the grade of turbo nozzle with your pressure washer. Finding a consumer vs. medium-grade vs. professional turbo nozzle is the easy part.
The secret is selecting the orifice size. The chart on every turbo nozzle page will help you align the right turbo nozzle with the right water pressure.
For example, most consumer-grade pressure washers produce 2400 PSI of pressure. A small turbo nozzle with a 3.0 orifice will suffice.
On the other hand, a professional-grade machine can generate up to 5000 PSI of pressure. The same 3.0 orifice will work flawlessly, but youíll need a much thicker turbo nozzle to withstand twice the pressure.
Try to keep your orifice size as small as possible. Why?
If you widen the orifice, you reduce the pressure. The whole purpose of a turbo nozzle is to fully utilize the highest pressure possible. Donít dilute the pressure.
