ANSWER

A recent change in manufacturing process means that the cone gas nozzle no longer has a screw thread for attaching the PEEK handle.

The PEEK handle was redesigned to push-fit over the barbed arm.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The part number for the cone gas nozzle has not changed; it must be ordered as an assembly (700004216) because the handle must be fitted in-house using a specialized tool.

The new handle is not removed for cleaning. PEEK is resistant to a wide range of solvents at 60 ºC or lower, so the cone gas nozzle can be cleaned as an assembly.
