Incoe Corp., Troy, Mich., has redesigned its entire DFS series of nozzles to prevent damage to the nozzle tip or thread or end cap during heater removal and/or replacement. The new design features a snap ring over the end cap that, when removed, allows the heater to be removed without disturbing the tip, end cap, or nozzle thread. The hexagonal nut of the end cap is made smaller so that the heater housing will pull off the nozzle and clear the tip end while leaving the end cap and tip in place.
