Do not use solvents of any kind on Nozzles (Orifices) or Test Plates (Calibration Plates).
Keep Nozzles in protective cases at all times when not in use.
Do not use any hard/sharp object to clean or inspect the bore of the Nozzles.
Sizing the bore of the nozzle will not reveal if the Nozzle is in calibration. Calibration of the Nozzle can only be verified through use of the corresponding test plate.
Use only a soft cotton thread/string in the bore to clean the Nozzle.
Non-Frazier air permeability testers are not able to report "Frazier Air Permeability" or "Frazier Number" (air flow in CFM or other units). Frazier Calibration procedures are proprietary.

Important: Check calibration of each nozzle with its corresponding size test plate on a regular basis. Test plates are available for each nozzle size from Frazier Co.

When moving instrument with red oil in manometers - keep table within 5 degrees of level.
When moving instrument with no red oil in manometers (residue of oil in reservior) - keep table within 45 degrees of level.

When transporting nozzles - pack each nozzle in an individual hard plastic case.

If the orifice (nozzle) is dirty, then the airflow reading will be higher than it should be. (i.e. if you clean the dirt out of the orifice (nozzle) the airflow reading will decrease.)
If the test plate (calibration plate) is dirty, then the airflow reading will be lower than it should be. (i.e. if you clean the dirt out of the test plate (calibration plate) the airflow reading will increase.)
