Worksite Preparation

Acceptable Base Materials
The NITROSET tool is for fastening into the following base materials only

  • Concrete
  • Structural Steel

Never attempt to fasten into any material other than those listed above.
Inappropriate Base Materials
The NITROSET° tool is NOT for fastening into the following base materials:

  • Wood
  • Drywall
  • Glass

Operating Instructions

Loading and Actuating Instructions

  1. Reset the tool before inserting the fastener to ensure the muzzle barrel is clear of any debris.
    A) Pull back front of muzzle until reset spring fully collapses.
    B) Ensure the firing pin guide clears all debris from the muzzle chamber prior to inserting the new fastener assembly.
  2. Insert the fastener fully into the muzzle of the tool. Fasteners must be fully seated in the muzzle to ensure proper actuation.
    (Hold reset sleeve while inserting fasteners.)
    NITROSET NTS8X Concrete Impact Driver Set User Manual  & troubleshooting 7WARNING NITROSET NTS8X Concrete Impact Driver Set User Manual  & troubleshooting 8
    If the fastener assembly cannot be inserted into the muzzle, do not force the fastener into the muzzle. This can jam the fastener in the tool and damage the fastener. Fasteners that cannot be inserted should be removed and discarded appropriately.
    In case of jammed fasteners – Refer to the Troubleshooting Guide (Page 11) for proper removal of all jammed fasteners.
  3. Place the NITROSET® tool perpendicular against the fastening surface. ,

    Cracked concrete may actuate loudly when using the tool.
    NITROSET NTS8X Concrete Impact Driver Set User Manual  & troubleshooting 11Fasteners should not be driven close to the edge of the base substrate.
    NITROSET NTS8X Concrete Impact Driver Set User Manual  & troubleshooting 12Always maintain a distance of at least 3″ from the concrete edge or 1″ from the steel edge.
  4. Position the tool and push directly to feel the engagement of the firing spring. Follow with a smooth and forceful motion to compress the firing spring to trigger the firing mechanism. This is the correct fastening procedure to minimize spoiling and noise.=
    IMPORTANT: DO NOT BOUNCE FIRE THE TOOL!
  5. Reset the tool to ensure the muzzle barrel is clear of debris and repeat Steps 1 to 4 for further use.

If the tool fails to fasten, remove the spent fastener assembly while pointing the tool away from yourself and any bystanders.

Troubleshooting Guide

I. The fastener is jammed inside the nosepiece.
A) If cycling the tool does not clear the jammed fastener, remove the nosepiece completely. The jammed fastener can then be removed from the other end.
B) DO NOT strike the tool against the substrate to dislodge the fastener.
C) If the fastener remains permanently jammed, please contact the appropriate support personnel.
II. The tool does not fire.
A) Check if you are fastening to the appropriate substrate material.
B) Check the nosepiece is free of debris and reset the tool.
C) Check if the correct adapter is being used (Refer to Adapter usage Table on Page 6).
D) Ensure the tool is assembled properly according to the manual and instructions.
NITROSET NTS8X Concrete Impact Driver Set User Manual  & troubleshooting 17E) Before firing, make sure the nosepiece is perpendicular (right angle) to the material surface. The tool is not designed to fasten at other angles.
F) Check if the firing pin is piercing the NITROSET pill, If it’s piercing the pill and not firing, then check for damage to the firing pin. Replace the firing pin if damaged.
G) If the tool still does not actuate after checking all the above, follow the instructions (Page 14) and disassemble to check for broken parts.
III. The tool fires loudly.
A) Check if you are fastening to the appropriate substrate material.
B) Check if the correct adapter is being used.
C) Before firing, ensure the nosepiece is perpendicular to the material surface. The tool is not designed to fasten properly at other angles.
D) Check and clean the debris cup. Ensure the vents in the debris cup are clear of debris.
E) Ensure the debris cup and muzzle are securely fastened to the tool.
IV. The tool is difficult to depress and fire.
A) Ensure the tool is assembled properly according to the manual and instructions.
B) Clean and lubricate according to the operator’s manual.
C) Check that the springs are clean and straight.
V. Firing Pin Holder and Guide are damaged.
A) Disassemble the tool and check to see if the buffer is in place. This part acts as a shock absorber. Damage to the tool is possible if used without the buffer properly inserted. B) Clean to the tool to ensure no debris has gotten into the main body of the tool.
REMEMBER
If all of the above fails, please contact your local supplier’s technical support personnel to address the issues or visit our website at: WWW.NITROSET.COM

Cleaning Procedure

NITROSET® Tool Full Cleaning Procedure
It Is recommended that the NITROSET® tool be cleaned every day after use. Proper maintenance and cleaning of the tool enable the tool to operate at peak performance.

  1. First, be sure all fastener assemblies and debris are ejected from the tool by resetting it pointed away from yourself or any bystanders.
  2. Remove the muzzle by unscrewing it from the tool shank. Then, remove the end cap and disassemble the entire tool following the tool disassembly instructions (Page 14).
  3. Empty the debris cup.
  4. To clean, use a diluted industrial degreaser or cleaner similar to Strike-Hold (provided in a tool kit) or another similar non-oil base degreaser to spray or wipe the tool surface and threads. Allow contact time of 3 to 5 minutes before scrubbing. Wipe off excess cleaning agent and allow the tool to fully dry before reassembly.
  5. Re-assemble the tool (Page 15). For long-term storage, thread the nosepiece halfway to prevent debris build-up from forming rust on the fine thread.

Interim Cleaning Procedure

  1. Empty the debris cup atter every 500 fastenings, or as needed to optimize performance.
  2. A liquid shot of degreaser lubricant of approximately every 500 to 1000 fastenings is recommended to maintain a smooth operation.
  3. This will help tool performance and actuating consistency, making your end-of-day cleaning easier.
